Winterberry Charter School is an arts-integrated K-8 public school inspired by Waldorf educational methods that meets State of Alaska and Anchorage School District curriculum standards. Winterberry was founded by parents dedicated to making this educational environment available for all interested Anchorage families free of tuition.

Our program is designed to promote the growth and development of the whole child;  head, heart, and hands.

We strive to nurture and promote the development of healthy, responsible and creative human beings. Winterberry provides an innovative, standards-based education, enhancing the growth of student creativity and imagination through the arts. 


Our aim is to provide a holistic learning environment and demonstrate that all children are natural and inspired learners who can achieve.


We use curriculum based on the Waldorf educational philosophy that uses developmentally appropriate approaches and the arts to encourage academic achievement, creativity, social intelligence, and ecological awareness.
