Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm serves nearly 400 students from five different counties north of the San Francisco Bay in Parent-Toddler Classes through twelfth grade. A highly committed and experienced faculty is supported by a long-tenured and efficient Administrative Staff and active Board of Directors. Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm also enjoys an enthusiastic and generous parent community.
Our flourishing 38-acre campus is located in beautiful Sonoma County, just 60 miles north of San Francisco and is bordered by commercial farms, vineyards, and a natural creek/wildlife area. In addition to the school’s educational facilities, a six-acre biodynamic farm and wildlife preserve are located on the campus. We enjoy an idyllic Mediterranean climate with spring-time fields of wild flowers, hot summers cooled at night by ocean fog, rich autumn light on vibrant harvest colors, and wet, green winters.
Sonoma County is home to ancient redwood forests, stands of mighty oak, and scenic, rugged coastlines. Picturesque orchards, vineyards, and dairies abound. Many of our hills and mountains are still truly wild and offer hikers and bikers miles of trails to explore. Sonoma has also become a haven for “foodies”, offering some of the best restaurants and wines in the world. Many local farmers are using organic and biodynamic methods, with their bounties found in our markets and restaurants. This is the setting our students and families enjoy! www.sonomacounty.com
