About Lawrence, Kansas
Lawrence, Kansas is an ideal home to a Waldorf school. Home to the University of Kansas, Haskell Indian Nations University and being near cosmopolitan Kansas City, Lawrence provides a rich, international and multi-cultural life to its residents and visitors with the added benefit of a low cost of living. It has been said that Lawrence is America’s largest city without a shopping mall—a statement that reflects a strong commitment to local businesses and pride in the community’s historic downtown. Several years ago author John Villani identified Lawrence as among the top fifteen best art towns under a population of 100,000, and Lawrence has long been a music center. Several years ago, Lawrence was also identified as one of the top 10 locations to retire. Kansas University has created new centers for biological research, medicine, engineering and technology. The university’s school of education is renowned, with its program in Special Education consistently being ranked first in the nation. Lawrence, Kansas is a growing Waldorf community. Prairie Moon Waldorf School is Kansas’ only Waldorf school and sits on a beautiful 7.5 acres of prairie land in the Kaw River Valley only minutes from downtown Lawrence. Nearby, a Waldorf initiative in Kansas City has planted its seeds. Our school’s first grade teacher will come to a small, but growing Anthroposophical community and will have the opportunity to be a pioneer of Waldorf education in the Heartland.
