Best Wishes to WHS Model UN Team!

Friday, November 2 - Sunday, November 4
This weekend, Waldorf High School will send seven students to UConn's 20th Annual Model United Nations Conference. This will also be WHS' 20th year participating in the conference. The Model U.N. Elective Course at WHS gives students an opportunity to advance their understanding of international politics by attending a Model U.N. conference as delegates of a U.N. member nation. Since the beginning of the school year, students have been researching countries and committees assigned by the conference organizers and have written position papers that are the basis for their participation in the committee debates and discussions.  Click here to view this year's WHS Model UN Team and their assignments.

Congratulations, Class of 2018!
  On Saturday, June 9, WHS held its 2018 Commencement Ceremony at Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library in Lexington. The ceremony included performances by WHS' All-School Chorus and the Senior Class. The Class of 2018 received a fond farewell from their class sponsor, Alex Nicholl. Morgan "Mo" Terry '18 presented a spirited "Senior Reflections" speech, which can be viewed here. In closing, Mo reminded his fellow classmates that, "we're all about to step into a completely new stage. We're going from dependent to independent. And we wouldn't be the people we are now without Waldorf High School of Massachusetts Bay, with its environment, teachers, peers, and curriculum."
Bruce Miller, President of WHS' Board of Trustees and parent of three WHS alumni, delivered a thoughtful and motivational commencement speech. View Mr. Miller's address here. Following the commencement speech, seniors received heartfelt speeches from their advisors. WHS is thrilled to welcome our 13 graduates into our alumni family.

Destination Imagination Team Attends Global Competition
Congratulations to our Destination Imagination Team on their tremendous performance at Globals! The WHS Community is so proud of you! The Team (Willow Stoner, Elizabeth Owens, Smaranda Costiner, Liam Hilton, and Augustine Ros) placed 12th out of 52 teams in their category.
On May 23, Waldorf High School’s Destination Imagination (DI) team advanced to the Global DI competition in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they competed alongside 1,400 of the top-scoring DI teams from 45 U.S. states and 15 countries. More than 17,000 people attend the event each year. The Destination Imagination program, offered as an elective course at Waldorf High School, is an international, project-based educational program that encourages innovation, teamwork and creative problem solving. Students choose one of seven different open-ended DI challenges and work together in teams to plan, create and present their solution. DI fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Students learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. At the beginning of the elective course, students choose a problem solving challenge, collaborate to develop a creative solution, and compete at a regional level with other high schools. Qualifying teams advance on to a state-wide competition, where they compete to represent Massachusetts at the Global competition.

The strengths of Waldorf High School are many. One is the acceptance of all students and the welcoming, nonjudgmental atmosphere. Another is capturing the interest of students; it is real experiential learning.
