Magnuson Park welcomes the Seattle Waldorf School to Building 11

Magnuson Park will welcome a new resident partner organization this month when the ribbon is cut outside of Seattle Waldorf School’s new high school campus in the historic landmark Building 11. The grand opening celebration will take place from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28. The event will include campus tours, games, lemonade and dessert.

The Seattle Waldorf School is an independent school enrolling nearly 400 children ages 18 months to 18 years old. Its innovative curriculum is rooted in the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner engaging children’s heads, hearts and hands to develop their innate talents and abilities.

Since April, crews have been working hard to transform 15,000 square feet Magnuson’s Building 11 into science labs, art and dance studios, and humanities classrooms.

School representatives said they’re excited to be in a place as vibrant and spacious as Magnuson Park with views of Lake Washington, and an array of opportunities for collaboration with other park members.

“We think the Seattle Waldorf School will be a great addition to the park,” Magnuson Park Manager Brian Judd said.

The new Seattle Waldorf School location will be at 7777 62nd Ave NE inside Magnuson Park’s Building 11.
