As the sign at the front of the school says, the Waldorf School of Garden City was established in 1947 when Harry S. Truman was president and Big Bands dominated popular music. We were only a pre-school with two kindergarten classes back then, but over the years the School has grown – each year adding a new grade – and finally in 1960 the school’s first class graduated from our high school. Since that first high school graduation, Waldorf has sent over 1,000 graduates into the world.

We hope you will remain actively involved in Waldorf – your alma mater. Join us for special events like the Fall Fair and the Carol Sing. Visit this website often. Keep us abreast of all your accomplishments for Waldorf’s alumni newsletter. And follow us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

All alumni from the Waldorf School of Garden City are welcome to join our Facebook Alumni Group Page! We also welcome alumni parents, former faculty and former staff. Close to 300 Facebook users are now part of this exciting group and connecting with each other! (We also invite you to join Camp Glen Brook’s Facebook page.)


And make sure we have your email address! The Waldorf e-Newsletter is sent out each month to over 1,400 alumni, alumni parents, former faculty and friends with news and information about what’s happening at the Waldorf School of Garden City. In each issue, we post a new trivia question that tests your knowledge of Waldorf’s “ins-and-outs.” How much do you know about the school’s past and present?

Finally, we hope you will consider volunteering, sharing your post-Waldorf experiences with current students or attending one of our special events – such as our triennial Gala – or some of these special events at Camp Glen Brook.

Of course, nothing online can quite compare to visiting campus in person. The Alumni Relations and Development Office is located on the second floor; be sure to stop by.

We hope to see you back at the Waldorf School of Garden City soon!
