Visit Our School

To get to know a school, you need to walk through the halls, meet the faculty, and get a feel for the community. At Urban Prairie, we warmly welcome you to do just that: visit our school.

We encourage you to learn more by attending an enrollment webinar, come for a walking tour of our campus, or schedule a conversation with a teacher or parent. Find out why our graduates successfully get into the high schools of their choice with the confidence and strong academic foundation that they will need to be engaged, global citizens.

School Tours

* COVID 19 Update: Once Phase 3 of the Governor-mandated reopening plan commences, Urban Prairie looks forward to welcoming families to visit our school campus. 

Experience the Urban Prairie Waldorf School curriculum in action! Meet teachers, current parents, and students. Tours are designed for adults only and begin with a presentation of how our curriculum meets students as they grow from preschool through eighth grade, followed with a visit to several classrooms to observe lessons in action. The morning will end with a display of student work with time for question.

Tours begin at 8:15am and will end at 10am.  Please allow time to park and enter through the Ashland Street entrance.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Family Focus Tours

COVID 19 Update: Once Phase 3 of the Governor-mandated reopening plan commences, Urban Prairie looks forward to welcoming families to visit our school campus.
