WHWS Community

At every level, Waldorf Education seeks to build community. In the classroom, it accomplishes this by replacing competition with collaboration, by setting the stage for deep and lasting relationships among students and between students and their teachers. The Waldorf school tradition of non-hierarchical governance and administration enhances the possibilities for a strong and healthy school community. Community is also built through school festivals, which are often shared with friends from outside the immediate school family, as well as through parent participation in school committees, in the classroom and on the board. Evening classes, lectures and study groups draw eager adult learners from every sector, thus widening the embrace of the Waldorf school.
