RUDOLF STEINER SCHOOL 2018 ANNUAL REPORT
WALDORF EDUCATION IS THE ANSWER
“Waldorf Education strives to teach children to understand one another, to develop empathy and tolerance for others as well as to be free thinkers. These skills are desperately needed in a world wrestling with intolerance and hatred. As the Rudolf Steiner School begins celebrating its 90th birthday and Waldorf Education it’s 100th birthday, our education is more valuable than ever."
— STACEY KELLY, BOARD CHAIR
Renewal, Growth & Transformation
As the pedagogical center and spiritual organ of the school, the College of Teachers is responsible for establishing and upholding the school’s mission.
“We ended the school year with a net cash surplus after taking into account capital expenditures. This represents a substantial improvement from the cash losses we have incurred over the previous few years and was the result of better than expected enrollment during the school year as well as prudent cost reduction initiatives. ”
— TUSHAR SHAH, TREASURER
“I remember delivering the 25 desks my classmates and I built to the First Grade with pride... Fast forward 27 years later and these desks are not only still in use, they are standing strong and one of my daughters is sitting at it every morning (and our other daughter will be in two years)!”
— ALEX KADVAN, CLASS OF 1990
