Our Story

waldorftruckeeschoolThe Golden Valley Tahoe School's grass roots beginnings mirror the hard work and determination of the pioneers of the first Golden Valley Charter School over twenty years ago. It was just a few years ago when a small group of preschool parents had a vision to create a public Waldorf school to provide families from all socioeconomic backgrounds access to an education previously available only at expensive private schools. They named this education group the Tahoe Truckee Waldorf Learning Group and had a dream for it to one day become a tuition-free public Waldorf school in the Truckee area. In January of 2018, Golden Valley Charter Schools was invited to write and manage the Tahoe Truckee Waldorf Group charter with the plan to open a Transitional Kindergarten through Second Grade Tuition-Free Public Waldorf School in September of 2018. The school will grow to be a TK-8th grade. The new name of the school is Golden Valley Tahoe School and is a third school of Golden Valley Charter Schools.

The Golden Valley community will continue the grass roots commitment to the values of Waldorf education and will foster the growth and sustainability of the school in a thoughtful way. Golden Valley Charter Schools looks forward to expanding the reach of public Waldorf opportunities in the Northern California region and many more years serving the children and families in the greater Sacramento and Placer County area.

The Golden Valley Tahoe School’s unique location makes it accessible for many outdoor education opportunities filled with the magic of snow and nature.
