The Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School, located in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, is a thriving 45 year-old Waldorf School with more than 200 preschool through 8th grade students. Our curriculum includes Spanish, handwork, woodwork, music, eurythmy, an educational support program and physical education. Festivals and celebrations are community-oriented. Our Board is active and well-established and our strong PA reflects a supportive and diverse parent body. The school is a full member of AWSNA, as well as of the Association of Independent Schools of New England. An active Anthroposophical branch and First Class are in the area, as well as a nearby teacher training center, biodynamic farm and farm store.
Spacious classrooms, handwork and woodworking studios, a science room and auditorium look out over thirty-two acres of open and wooded land bordering the Green River. Basketball and handball courts, open playing fields and biodynamic gardens extend the classrooms beyond school buildings. The classic Berkshires timber frame barn where the school began is now the school’s 1,000 square-foot library.
Located midway between New York City and Boston, the Berkshires are well known for cultural and artistic communities, offering theater, music, dance and museums. Tanglewood, the Berkshire Theatre Festival, Jacob’s Pillow, Shakespeare & Co. and folk and bluegrass festivals are just some of our famous local attractions. Skiing, skating and other sports are popular in winter; visitors come from all over the world in the summer to enjoy on our crystalline lakes and rivers, and to hike and camp on the Appalachian and other trails.
