Berkshire Waldorf School
Great Barrington, MA
Berkshire Waldorf School, like Waldorf schools all over the world, was founded as a kindergarten, and grew with the children. In 2021, BWS celebrates 50 years of Waldorf education in the Berkshires. Our 32-acre natural campus of “outdoor classrooms” features forests, meadows, playing fields and gardens, bounded by the Green River. The Betty Szold Krainis building provides indoor classrooms for Early Childhood classes. And the primary building, built around a classic Berkshires timber frame barn, welcomes elementary and middle school grades. This antique barn is the heart of our school, now a library, and a cozy place to visit in all four seasons! Learning spaces also include art studios, an auditorium which is both theater and community gathering space, a science lab, playing fields and biodynamic gardens.
