Waldorf 100

Join us to celebrate 100 years of Steiner education.

We have an exciting line up of events and projects to celebrate our Centennial and we would love you all,  with past teachers, to join our school community to be a part of it all.  Please see the program below.

The first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart in 1919. Today there are over 1,100 Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Waldorf kindergartens in some 80 countries around the globe and counting. Our Centennial is an occasion to further develop Waldorf education for contemporary times, and focus more consciously on its global dimensions. Act locally, affect globally: Steiner/Waldorf schools change the world.

Our school has an exciting line up of events and projects to celebrate our Centennial and we would love our past students and teachers to join our school community and be a part of it all.
