Welcome to WISE

“Receive the child in reverence, educate the child with love, let the child go forth in freedom.” ~ Rudolf Steiner

At the Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton, we strive to educate the Whole Child; Head, Heart and Hands. Our Early Childhood programs nurture the wonder-filled imaginative world of young children, building a strong base for future learning and development. Art, movement and culture are infused into all academic study. Nature and natural materials are integrated into the learning experience. Our goal is to explore the child’s full potential, while nurturing their self-esteem by encouraging the development of a whole range of additional skills. In this way, a lifelong love of learning is cultivated by nourishing the spirit of curiosity.

My name is Ahmi Mack and I graduated from the Calgary Waldorf School in 2013. I started with Waldorf in Preschool and continued to Grade nine. I owe so much to the Waldorf School (and my favourite teacher Mr. Carter) for who I have become and for the amazing lifelong friends I made. To me, Waldorf was always more than just a school but a community that gave me so many experiences such as hiking, camping, sailing, and ski trips. I graduated from the Mount Royal University Aviation program in 2018 and am now a First Officer pilot with Jazz Aviation (Air Canada Express). Waldorf helped me get to where I am today. It gave me the environment and freedom to pursue whatever I wanted, and it gave me the close friends to support me through life. I do not think I would be a female airline pilot at age 22 if it weren't for the Calgary Waldorf School.
