Handwork is an important part of the Waldorf curriculum -- for good reason. Far from frivolous, the Waldorf School of Baltimore’s fiber arts program instills powerful personal lessons.

Each year the eighth grade performs a play in the spring prior to graduation. Due to the global pandemic, the class came up with a creative way to have a performance without an in-person audience.
With the help of another WSB alumni, Jessie Hughes and Elias Schutzman—now an actor, musician, teacher, and sound expert— Mr. Ciofalo's eighth grade class was able to host a live zoom performance of a radio play. The class set up one camera in the Eurythmy Room and several state-of-the-art microphones for the live performance on April 18.

Students find inspiration in the newest art exhibit featured in the upstairs gallery space.
WSB has seen lots of Alumni activity lately – the most colorful of which is the latest exhibit in our Community Art Gallery. Natan Lawson is a Baltimore-based artist who graduated from the Waldorf School of Baltimore in 2002.
Lily, in eighth grade said she found the piece titled "Latchkey" the most interesting piece in the collection.
"It could be in an old film," she said. "I like the style of it and how it feels vintage. It really catches my eye."

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.

Explore Waldorf at our Middle School Visiting Day on Friday, March 4. The Our Middle School curriculum addresses the beginning of student reasoning capacities. Adolescents move from being mostly active discoverers of the world with the class teacher’s guidance toward greater critical thinking. More and more, they engage in dialogue and synthesize information from varied sources to draw their own reasoned conclusions.
