Community

Spring Garden Waldorf is a community of people united in the mission of teaching, inspiring, and caring for the well-being of our children. At Spring Garden, as is true with all Waldorf schools, our experienced educators are in charge of student curriculum, while the administration concerns itself with the everyday business of running a healthy school. But it is our active parents that make Spring Garden a vibrant and welcoming community – donating 30 hours of service per family for celebrations, special events, fundraising, and general support.

Our community embraces active parent involvement, openness, economic and social diversity, consensus, and teamwork. Our families, teachers, and staff share the responsibilities and rewards of participating in our school community. Parents play essential roles as advocates for their children and as partners in enriching
our community with their ideas, interests, talents, resources, and concerns.

Parents contribute to the health of the school by supporting school policies and procedures. This allows families to experience the warmth of a community, working together with shared values and a common interest in its students’ education.
