Tamarack Waldorf School is unique in America, making Waldorf Education accessible for students who would not normally be able to afford it while at the same time providing an enlivening atmosphere, diverse in socioeconomic ways unusual to Waldorf Education on this continent.

I talk about it wherever I go and I learn more about teaching here than anywhere else.” If you, as a Waldorf educator, seek a community in which Waldorf Education is accessible to students from all walks of life and, in that, “works” and works well, consider joining us!
