The Waldorf School of Baltimore has been a Certified Green School since 2010 (our certification was renewed in 2014) through the Maryland Green Schools Program, which works to integrate hands-on, inquiry-based instruction to empower individuals towards an active role in responsible environmental stewardship.
For more than a century, Waldorf education has maintained a strong focus on immersing children in the outdoors to promote a love of nature. Led by our Ecoliteracy Coordinator, Waldorf School of Baltimore has transformed this core belief into a formal, concerted effort to prepare our students to become empowered, responsible environmental stewards.
Our playground is a certified Wildlife Habitat, with food, shelter, and water sources for indigenous species. We have been awarded a Baltimore City Master Gardener’s Outstanding School Garden Award. All of our energy is offset by renewable sources. Field trips and overnight stays all promote outdoor learning.
