History & Timeline

First established in 1999 in Quakertown, Pennsylvania as a Waldorf kindergarten, River Valley Waldorf School grew over time into a thriving PreK-8th grade school. In 2002, the school moved to the former Bridgeton Township Elementary school building in Upper Black Eddy, thanks to the generous support of the Bader family. A devoted group of parents and teachers came together to establish the school, founding Waldorf education in the Delaware River Valley. In 2019, River Valley graduated its 100th graduate from the 8th grade, a timely coincidence to celebrate 100 years of Waldorf education world-wide.
