The Waldorf School of Garden City (WSGC) is an independent college preparatory day school for children in Nursery through Twelfth Grade.

The indoor facilities, all of which are connected, feature a historical main building entrance, a large gymnasium, a performance space, a modern library center, a fiber arts studio, three laboratories, a woodshop, music and practice rooms, a cafeteria, and a visual arts studio. The School also owns Camp Glen Brook, a 200-acre farm, in New Hampshire which is utilized as a part of our curriculum for grades 3-12. The Waldorf School of Garden City is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools and the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and is recognized by the New York State Education Department.
