We are delighted to share with our community some of the college admissions results from the Berkshire Waldorf High School’s Class of 2018. Many of these students also attended GBRSS from early childhood through the 8th grade. It is so pleasing to know how far-reaching Waldorf students are in their choices for higher education.
