Chengdu Waldorf Grade School Receives License in China

A milestone was reached for worldwide Waldorf education on 10 January 2012 when the Chengdu Waldorf school received a full license as a grade school (as well as kindergarten) from the education authorities in Chengdu, Sichuan province. This was the result of a “Long March” and some tireless work over seven years by the whole faculty, especially the three founding teachers Li Zhang, Harry Huang, and Zewu Li (father of Mai in the SFWHS tenth grade). Zewu will be visiting the San Francisco Waldorf School with ten eighth grade students the week of February 6, 2012. See the school at:

"On behalf of the entire San Francisco Waldorf School community, Congratulations to Li Zhang, Zewu Li, Harry Huang, and the rest of the faculty on becoming the first fully approved Waldorf School in China! We wish you all the best for the future!"
