The Waldorf School of Baltimore (WSB) understands the key to education is human connection, with teachers at every level, known to go above and beyond to ensure their students feel supported, secure, and special.
In the WSB Children’s Garden and First Grade Classes, the all-important work of relationship building starts well before the first day of school, thanks to the unique Waldorf practice of one-on-one student/teacher visits during the summer months.
