Alumni at SFWS

Waldorf high schools across the United States have an established reputation for excellent college placement. San Francisco Waldorf High School is no exception. Our students are offered acceptance to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country, and they flourish academically, socially, and personally as a result of the skills they developed during their high school years. In addition to excelling academically, our graduates become global citizens and contribute their skills and passions in areas of community development, academia, arts, medicine, business, social entrepreneurship, and more.

Alumni take an active role in the SF Waldorf School community and attend regular events, such as Winter Fair, Spring Night, the alumni hosted 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, Winter/Summer Reunions, class reunions and more! Through a strong social media presence, weekly and quarterly newsletters, and various networking events, our Alumni are able to stay connected, engage with, and foster relationships with the current Waldorf community and build relationships that last a lifetime.
