Stroll through the campus and you may hear young children singing while lower school students rehearse lines or sand a stool in the woodworking. High school students frequently have classes outdoor classes on and off campus. Parent-Child Program children may be discovering the beauty of our farm or Kindergarten children may enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the Extended Care Program.
During the week and occasional weekends our school is bustling with activity from morning to evening.
In addition to sports many high school students join and create clubs or participate in the student council, which provide opportunities for leadership and exploration around shared interests. Many students get involved in various community service opportunities to help their community by volunteering, organizing food drives, and participating in fun runs for local non-profit organizations. SWS also has active German student exchange and international student admissions. Visiting exchange partners, as well as international students from many different countries such as China, South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan are an integral part of the student body.
Many middle and high school students enjoy participating in our growing athletics program.
The joys and challenges of parenting are supported through parent evenings, parent-teacher conferences, and special lectures and events. Dedicated staff, faculty and volunteers support school and community life when we come together for curricular, seasonal and multi-cultural festivals, celebrations, and events such as Harvest Faire, Pumpkin Path, Grand May Day, Annual Auction, Pentathlon and much more.
Participating in both athletics and the arts is the norm for students at the Sacramento Waldorf School. The SWS Athletics program fosters a healthy, supportive environment for student athletes to compete passionately while deepening relationships with peers and learning valuable lessons about commitment, effort, time management, and sportsmanship.
Clubs are based on student interest and therefore may vary from year to year. A group of students may form a new club by inviting a faculty member to sponsor it. The following clubs are currently or recently active:
