Waldorf School Hosts Public Meetings about New High School
Aug 29, 2014 12:21PM
Tamarack Waldorf School will host informational meetings about its new high school at 6 p.m., September 8, September 30 and October 9 on the site of the new campus, 2628 North Martin Luther King Junior Drive, in Milwaukee. Tamarack received a $375,000 startup grant from the Walton Family Foundation to expand its high school grades, beginning with the addition of ninth grade this fall and continuing with the addition of another grade each year thereafter.
The addition of high school grade levels will bring the hands-on, experiential, educational model of Waldorf education to adolescents, with a curriculum emphasizing vigorous academics, artistic creativity and social relevance. An ongoing focus on permaculture, place-based learning and community service is woven into its programs. Tamarack will be the first Waldorf high school in southeastern Wisconsin and the 41st Waldorf high school in North America. The school participates in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and offers tuition assistance.
