Bright Water Waldorf School

Bright Water Waldorf School is a non-profit preschool through grade eight Waldorf School located on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington.

We offer preschool through eighth grade students an education that is joyful and purposeful. We actively seek a diverse student body.


Last week, our 5th graders participated in the Greek Games! Part of 5th grade Waldorf curriculum is exploring Greek culture, traditions, stories of gods and heroes. Our students met up with 6 other Waldorf schools at Camp Killoqua to celebrate and share all they have learned!

ALL PLANTS MUST GO! We have plants left over from May Faire that need a home, so we are having one more plant sale today at 2:45 PM. The plant sale will be set up near the Woodland Kindergarten entrance, please bring cash or checks!

This week at Bright Water, we had our Eurythmy Ensemble perform 'The Clever Ashik'!

Thank you to everyone that helped with our May Faire Festival last Saturday! There was plenty of sun and joy to go around!

BWWS will be closed April 10th through the 18th for Spring Break. Limited staff will be available April 17th and 18th for teacher in-service and parent conferences. School and normal office hours will resume on April 19th.

Wishing you all a bright and playful Spring from BWWS!

[04/03/17]   We are experiencing what seems to be an internet outage. Hopefully it will be fixed soon! In case of an emergency please call (206) 604-4061.

Our fourth grade class just recently finished their wild animal projects! The students chose an animal and had to research their characteristics, their diet and any other interesting facts.The students then wrote a paper on "A day in the life" of their animal, as well as a painting and 3-D representation of the animal. Check out the fruits of their hard work!

"The shelters on display arose from our study of shelters around the world. Traditional shelters are fascinating in how they have perfectly adapted to their environment and have made excellent use of natural materials available. Each our of 16 students designed and constructed a shelter of his or her choice, and wrote a short composition based on research of the culture, lifestyle, environment, and the dwelling. Most of the shelters on display are traditional shelters from different countries and climates from the Arctic to the South Pacific."

-Mrs. Krupp, 3rd grade teacher
