About TWS and Tucson:

We offer 5 mixed-age early childhood classes with children ages 2-6 in each class and Grades 1-8, serving over 200 students and their families; many more families with very young children come to participate in weekly parent-child classes held on campus. We have a dedicated community of parents, faculty, staff, and alumnae. Since 2008, we have been situated on an almost 10-acre site in a rural historic district of north-central Tucson. The property is an old horse ranch with endless possibilities. We are continuously developing our site, looking to meet the needs of our growing school. Learn more about Tucson Waldorf school at www.tucsonwaldorf.org. 

Our faculty and staff are committed to working out of the core principles of Waldorf Education in guiding our students and supporting one another in our common enterprise. TWS was founded in 1993 and is one of only two independent Waldorf Schools in Arizona. We are a full member of AWSNA. Our community is deeply involved in the life of the school, and extends the web of mutual support beyond the confines of the campus.

Our campus occupies a 10-acre site in the Binghampton Rural Historic Landscape in Tucson, at the base of the Catalina Foothills. All of our classrooms open to the outdoors.

The school is situated on a 10 acre site in a rural historic district of north-central Tucson, just below the foothills of the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains. Our land is home to abundant desert wildlife, and has a rich history of human settlement—first and longest by the Hohokam people and their descendants, and much later by Mormon farmers. Our property was a horse ranch before we began to occupy it in 2008, and the renovated ranch house, horse stalls and other structures are still in use as classrooms and work spaces in addition to the lovely classroom buildings we’ve added. We are continuously developing our unique site to meet the needs of our growing school.

Tucson is situated in the lush Sonoran Desert and surrounded on all sides by mountain ranges. It has the lovely, relaxed feel of a small town and the amenities of a sophisticated city. In 2015, UNESCO named Tucson a World City of Gastronomy, because of the many thousands of years of food cultivation in our valley, and the multi-cultural culinary richness that exists here still. In addition to our sunny weather, Tucson has a strong artistic community and offers a wide range of cultural events, museums, film series, theater productions, and musical performances. The University of Arizona is one of the leading research institutions in the country and draws many intellectual leaders to Tucson. We have a vibrant political culture, great coffee shops, and strong environmental principles. Opportunities for outdoor adventure and exploration abound; within 30 minutes to a few hours of driving, you can visit national parks, the mountains, and interesting small towns. Opportunities for hiking and cycling in and around the city are magnificent. Mexico is just over an hour to the south of us, and half a day’s drive will bring you to Puerto Peñasco, where you will find beautiful beaches and world-class diving. Yes, the desert is hot in the summer, but there are lots of opportunities for swimming, and cool mountains are nearby.

We appreciate your interest, and encourage you to consider joining our unique Tucson Waldorf School community. To learn more, please call 520.529.1032, or send an email to [email protected]
