Sandpoint, Idaho, is one of North America’s best kept secrets. We are located in a town of about 8,000, on the shores of the enchanting Lake Pend Oreille, surrounded by breathtaking mountains. The school is located in town and many teachers and students bike or walk to school. We have many fine restaurants and shops and an impressive local art and music scene. Given the natural splendor, there is ample opportunity for summer boating and swimming at the lake or hiking the hundreds of miles of mountain trails and winter fun in the back country or at our world-class ski resort, Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just 20 minutes from town.
In addition to our beautiful setting and small-town friendliness, we have a several anthroposophical study groups, including a local biodynamic farming and gardening group. We sometimes share speakers and mentoring with the Nelson Waldorf School in BC, the Windsong Waldorf Initiative in Spokane, Washington and the one just over the border in Creston, BC.
