Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School

The mission of PRWS is to provide a full Waldorf education to children in Early Childhood through Grade 8 and to be a vital and active part of the Driftless
region through the spiritual and cultural
opportunities we bring to the greater community.


Inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner, PRWS seeks to cultivate renewal through the integration of education and agriculture by engaging in a unique mix of social, cultural and economic

Our Current Programs


The Growing For Good campus houses classrooms for PRWS grades 4,5,6 and 8 as well as outdoor space (covered and uncovered) for our Kindergartens and our Movement and Music classes.  The grades each have their own space in sheltered hoop house structures.  Check out our Outdoor Classroom page to see how we are using this amazing space to be able to have in-person learning during this unprecedented time.


The Growing For Good campus also is home to our school garden.  This space is shared with the community as well as the Youth Initiative High School garden class.  There are two sheds, built by previous 4th-grade classes as part of their shelter year and 1000 square feet of garden space.  In addition to the garden, there are fruit trees and swales planted with permeculture plants. Find out more about our garden space here.


This year our Incubator Greenhouse program will be home to the Thoreau College Garden - a year-round program where students of Thoreau College learn about growing plants and running a business.  See more about Thoreau College and their program here.
