Our school rests in the Rawhide Valley, a rural community in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, near the towns of Sonora and Jamestown. Tuolumne County is a wilderness paradise with most of Yosemite National Park within its borders. Hiking, skiing, rock climbing, biking, and sightseeing opportunities abound. Quaint downtown Sonora hosts art galleries, live theatre, and a weekly Farmers’ Market. 

Our school is in its 29th year. We have 190 students in parent tot, nursery, kindergarten, and grades 1-8. We are fortunate to be blessed with a strong administration which possesses clear goals for our future. Our faculty is an extremely dedicated group of teachers, many of whom have graduated their own families from our school. The support we provide for each other carries us through challenging times as teachers, parents, and human beings. We are committed to working out of anthroposophy and the indications of Rudolf Steiner, as well as working with consensus.
