Waldorf100: Learn to Change the World

bees and treesThe first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart, Germany in 1919. Today there are over 1,100 Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Waldorf kindergartens in some 80 countries around the globe. We are making our Centennial an occasion to further develop Waldorf education for contemporary times, and focus more consciously on its global dimensions. With many exciting projects on all continents. Keep your ears and eyes open, and be part of the movement: 100 years are just the beginning!



Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor Takes Action for Bees bee

Bees were the guests of honor at our celebration on September 19th, the day the first Waldorf school opened in 1919 in Stuttgart, Germany. Our High School Bee Club and Bee-Friendly families got students excited about bees by spinning honeycombs, testing the “smoker”, trying on a bee-keeping veil, and sampling honey at the celebration. For the Waldorf education centennial, our school, along with over 160 Waldorf schools across North America, is helping to create an ecologically-green 'continental parks system'. As part of the initiative, RSSAA will plant and tend pollinator-friendly gardens on both campuses. 

All activities for the Waldorf 100 celebrations are made possible by our sponsors:

Network Platform Launched for Waldorf Alums Across North America

As Waldorf alums move through the world with their education, careers, and families, you never know who a great resource for information or contacts might be. Sign-up to the Waldorf Alum Networking Platform to connect with other Waldorf alum and stay in touch with RSSAA. It gives you access to internships, jobs, relocation support, and new friends from a diverse and growing pool of individuals with a shared history of Waldorf education! 

Community Mosaic Honoring Bees 

Bees are the inspiration for our community mosaic for the Lower School entryway. Individual honeycomb shaped tiles will come together into a larger, beautiful, pollinator landscape that envisions a healthy environment for bees.  Join the mosaic workshops at Winter Festival, Alumni reunions, and community events.
