Asheville, North Carolina, “#1 Best Small City,” is vibrant with a welcoming creative spirit. Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is known for its thriving artistic community, progressive mindset, and historically rich renaissance downtown with a booming food and music scene. Surrounded by spectacular natural beauty, there are abundant opportunities for outdoor activities from mountain hiking and biking to white water rafting and canoeing — in temperate weather, yet with all four seasons! The Asheville Waldorf School  (formerly Azalea Mountain School) became a member of AWSNA at the end of its seventh year; we are rapidly growing into our 11th year with an enrollment of roughly 145 children.

The Asheville Waldorf School is entering its twelfth school year. In the 2022/23 school year, we will be offering multiple parent-child classes, two nursery classes, two kindergartens, and grades First through Seventh/ Eighth. We offer a number of subject classes including Eurythmy and Extra Lesson. Our growth has been consistent even through the challenges of COVID-19, and our class sizes are healthy.

Asheville Waldorf School became associate members of WECAN in 2017 and of AWSNA in 2018. Our organization consists of a cohesive and striving Faculty, a Board of Directors that draws members from both the Parent body and the community, a committed Administration, and a loving and involved community of parents and families.
