Tomorrow River Community School, whose doors opened in 2013, is the second Alliance school to win the National Green Ribbon award!
At TRCCS sustainability and the environment run deep. Nature and arousing children’s reverence for it are major facets of the public school’s Waldorf-inspired curriculum. Situated at the University of Wisconsin’s Central Wisconsin Environmental Station (CWES), the school is located in rural Amherst, Wisconsin, a progressive community that has a lineage of alternative energy and sustainability. With neighbors and partners like the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, Farmshed, local organic farmers, and lovers of the arts and outdoors, it is critical to the mission of the school and the community to raise stewards of the earth through education, mentoring, and immersion. TRCCS has documented significant achievement in all three pillars of U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools.

This Spring edition of the Alliance newsletter explores the blossoming of the public Waldorf movement and urges our schools to take membership to a new level.
Articles from national and international allies remind us that, in the words of Christof Wiechart, “that Steiner made this curriculum not so much for his times, but for the times that are coming now.”
