If I had a child of school age, I would send him to one of the Waldorf Schools.
Saul Bellow (1915-2005), 1976 Nobel Literature Laureate.
My daughter’s experience at the Waldorf school has been both exciting and mind opening. I hope that more people can make Waldorf education available to their children.
Russell Schweickart, Apollo 9 astronaut, NASA Astronaut Technical Advisor, California Energy Commission, former Waldorf parent.
I think the Steiner school is a place where a child can learn real self sufficiency, and an ability and encouragement to think for themselves. I wish I had gone to a Steiner school.
Tilda Swinton, Actress and parent.
There is no task of greater importance than to give our children the very best preparation for the demands of an ominous future, a preparation that aims at the methodical cultivation of their spiritual and their moral gifts. As long as the exemplary work of the Waldorf School Movement continues to spread its influence as it has done over the past decades, we can all look forward with hope. I am sure that Rudolf Steiner’s work for children must be considered a central contribution to the twentieth century and I feel it deserves the support of all freedom-loving thinking people.
Bruno Walter (1876-1962), Composer and conductor.
We love Waldorf kids. We reject some students with 1600s on their SATs and accept others based on other factors, like the creative ability Waldorf students demonstrate.
Donna Badrig, Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions for Columbia University USA.
Being personally acquainted with a number of Waldorf students, I can say that they come closer to realizing their own potential than practically anyone I know.
