The Dunedin Rudolf Steiner School is the most southern in the world, and is the smallest in
New Zealand. It was founded in 1984, and became a fully integrated and state funded school in 1993.
The Dunedin Rudolf Steiner School offers a full primary / intermediate school, for children aged 6-13, and kindergartens for children aged 3-6 years. There are also playgroups for younger children and their parents or caregivers.
The School balances a Steiner curriculum with all the achievement objectives of the New Zealand Curriculum Framework to provide affordable Rudolf Steiner education to families in Dunedin. The benefits of this approach and the quality of teaching at the Dunedin Rudolf Steiner School were acknowledged in both the 2007 and 2011 Education Review office reports.
The school is situated on several hectares of land in a semi rural location, overlooking the Dunedin harbour, and it offers views out to Taiaroa Head.
The school is a member of the Federation of Rudolf Steiner Schools In New Zealand.
