Tamarack: Innovation, Inspiration, Individualization

Since opening its doors in 1996, Tamarack Waldorf School has provided the children of Milwaukee with a high-quality, well-balanced education emphasizing science, humanities and the arts. Tamarack is one of the most, if not the most, diverse Waldorf schools in the United States. Now, after years of work and a great deal of planning, we celebrate the opening of the Tamarack Waldorf High School. Our first 9th graders will begin their journey in autumn 2014, joined by a new class each year, until we serve grades nine through twelve in the 2017-2018 school year.

The whole Waldorf curriculum allows students to experience purpose and direction in their lives. The high school curriculum especially encourages growth in each adolescent’s individual critical thinking skills, and a cultivated sense of self.

The vigorously academic curriculum of the Waldorf High School features courses in biology, earth science, physics, chemistry, mathematics and humanities every year, taught in month-long blocks. Weekly classes in math, humanities, world language and movement are complemented by performing, visual and manual arts, real-world learning and community service. Students are prepared to meet tomorrow’s world through engagement in the widest variety of ways.

As Waldorf High School students engage in the world around them in service learning projects and week-long immersion in work on behalf of the community, they experience themselves as meaningfully contributing to the world, just as they experience meaning daily in their work in the classroom via the robust Waldorf curriculum.

“By the time they reach us at the college and university level, Waldorf students are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning.”                                                    – Arthur Zajonc, PhD, Professor of Physics Emeritus, Amherst College
