More than just a school. A community.
The South Shore Waldorf School is more than just a school. It is a community. Our parents embrace the vision of a vital, engaged and valued parent body in service of the school’s mission. Parent participation in the school festivals and events is welcome and encouraged. We recognize that families choose a Waldorf Education for a variety of reasons.
There are many ways in which parents can participate in the life of the school including joining committees, undertaking practical jobs, fundraising, classroom help, yard and building maintenance, assisting with events, and celebrating festivals with us. Our school community’s strength is a direct result of family involvement.
For those seeking to deepen their understanding of Waldorf Education and the philosophy behind it, various study opportunities are provided each year through lectures, workshops, study groups and courses for parents and friends of the school to become better acquainted with the theory and practice of Waldorf Education.
The advent of the Waldorf Schools was in my opinion the greatest contribution to world peace and understanding of the century.
The Borrowing Library in the school lobby contains a number of books and periodicals relating to Waldorf pedagogy and other parenting topics.
A true Community School, active and engaged participation by parents and primary caregivers is essential to the existence of the school – we welcome you to participate.
“My daughter’s experience at the Waldorf school has been both exciting and mind opening. I hope that more people can make Waldorf education available to their children.”
