In August 2011, the school was pleased to move to a new location. We are blessed with over 8 acres at our disposal. There are blueberries, a grove of oaks, a duck pond and meandering trails to enjoy daily. We are adjacent to the wonderful North Clackamas park, which has many additional amenities. Next year our school will be K-8. Our specialty subjects include: German, Spanish, Eurythmy, Handwork and Games, as well as Woodworking, Strings and Orchestra for the upper grades. The Micha-el Institute, a Waldorf Teacher Training led by John Miles, shares a home with us on the weekends. Many of the students of the Institute work closely with the Faculty to support our school with various events and fulfill their practicum. We have an inspiring faculty that share a love of Anthroposophy and a joy for children. We work with the intentions of Rudolf Steiner as well as having the freedom to hold and support our classes based on their individual needs.
If you feel a connection to our school, please send a letter of intent, 3 work related references, and your resume to The Micha-el School;
