Prairie Hill Waldorf School (PHWS), founded in 1987, is an independent, nonsectarian, nonprofit school serving children from infancy to through Grade 8 and offers the internationally acclaimed Waldorf curriculum. We strive to create and serve a diverse community that welcomes everyone regardless of differences of gender, race, religion, family structure, socioeconomic level, culture, age, sexual orientation, language and learning style.
We are accredited by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, and the State of Wisconsin. In 2014, we received a three year accreditation from AWSNA. The reaccreditation process allows Prairie Hill to reflect on it’s strengths and challenges with the goal of growth and progress toward the ideal of Waldorf educational excellence.
Waldorf is the fastest-growing non-sectarian educational movement in the world, with over 900 schools in 83 countries, and five schools in Wisconsin.
