Equity and Inclusion
“All of us in the academy and in the culture as a whole are called to renew our minds if we are to transform educational institutions—and society—so that the way we live, teach, and work can reflect our joy in cultural diversity, our passion for justice, and our love of freedom.”
San Francisco Waldorf School seeks to establish and maintain an inclusive learning environment in which differences are understood and celebrated. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are embraced as a strengthening principle across all areas of the school community. We strive to sustain a demographic that reflects the great diversity of the Bay Area, and we acknowledge that growth is an ongoing process that calls on the qualities of commitment and respect, which lie at the heart of our mission.

Created in 2021 to memorialize the commitment of SFWS parent Ran Oehl, this fund expands access for Early Childhood Program families from underrepresented communities with tuition scholarships.
Established in 2015, this fund supports tuition assistance and honors Diane David, a longtime early childhood educator, parent, and advocate for socioeconomic diversity.
We care deeply about maintaining an equitable, just, and welcoming school environment. Have you experienced or witnessed marginalization and/or racism at SFWS?
