A Community of Care
When we ask alums to look back on their time spent at WSB and reflect on what distinguished their elementary years from later schooling, a common phrase is often repeated: it just felt like everyone there really CARED.
It’s true…and it matters.
Not only is a joyful, connected and moral approach to education more enjoyable, but studies have shown that students who know that their teachers and school community care deeply about them are more likely to be engaged and learning at a high level.

Grade Five Play
Earlier this morning, elementary grades three through eight were treated to an original and spirited portrayal of the story of Isis and Osiris, performed by the fifth grade, a culmination of their learning the wonders of Egyptian culture.
The performance was unique in more ways than one. For starters, the students co-wrote the script with their class teacher, Ms. Brenda Wolf Smith, cobbling together three different versions of the infamous story and interjecting original lines (and raps) throughout.

At the Waldorf School, teachers incorporate current and historical stories and lessons about peoples and cultures around the world, Maryland and the other regions of the United States throughout the year. Children’s lessons will vary based on age, grade, and the class configuration. This last month teachers created meaningful ways to highlight Black History Month. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work has inspired expansion of our programmatic offerings.
