Meet Our Students

Our students come from about 90 towns in 13 counties, including Rockland, Westchester, Orange, Putnam, New York (Manhattan), and the Bronx in NY; Bergen, Essex, Passaic, and Hudson in New Jersey; and Fairfield in CT. We also host international students from around the world. 

When they graduate, our students go on to great schools (click to see College Acceptance and Matriculation Lists) and are sought-after for their confidence, creativity, and curiosity.

How long have you been at Green Meadow?

I've been at Green Meadow for three years. Before Green Meadow, I attended a small private school in Manhattan. Classes were quite similar to Green Meadow, though the atmosphere and community were not the same.

Where do you imagine you'll be in five years?

I definitely see myself graduating college in four years and most likely continuing on to getting my master’s. Hopefully, after that I will attend law school!

What do you appreciate most about your education?

One of the aspects I appreciate the most about Waldorf Education is the learning environment. In class, every single student is interactive and included in all discussions; also, every student gets the individual attention they need from a teacher. Another aspect I enjoy is that no matter what class you take, there is always a way it is connected to the Earth and the environment around us.

What would you tell a prospective student about coming to Green Meadow?

All I can say is that you'll look at the world differently the minute you start school here, and that you'll find a new appreciation for learning and the Earth.

CLASS OF 2018

How long have you been at Green Meadow?

I've been at Green Meadow for two years, starting in ninth grade. I will be graduating from Green Meadow too. My previous school was a large international school in Beijing.

Where do you imagine you'll be in five years?

I expect I will be graduating college.

What do you appreciate most about your education?

I enjoy the diversity of subjects that are taught. I like the fact that we can go from math class to hammering metals or creating a floor mat within a short time period. Also, all of the teachers are easily approachable and willing to help.

What would you tell a prospective student about coming to Green Meadow?

I would tell the person to enjoy the student body (everyone is incredibly friendly) and to enjoy classes, because they’re both instructive and interactive.

CLASS OF 2018

How long have you been at Green Meadow?
I have attended Green Meadow since I was in kindergarten.

Where do you imagine you'll be in five years?
My mother is hoping the answer is “alive”, but I would like to see myself exploring the world of art. I’ll be working in the arts, but exactly where I cannot say as many paths of art intrigue me.

What do you appreciate most about your Waldorf Education?
The dress code has kept me on the straight and narrow… but Green Meadow has offered me an opportunity to discover myself in all my abilities, as a creative, cognitive and social student.

What would you tell a prospective student about coming to Green Meadow?
The Lower School was like growing up in a wonderland, and as a child it gave me a holistic base in education and a strong connection with nature. The high school is a far more intense experience, but the broad curriculum is both fascinating and formative. If you can persevere, it’s well worth it.

CLASS OF 2019

How long have you been at Green Meadow?

I have been a student at Green Meadow since Parent & Child.

Where do you imagine you'll be in five years?

I see myself in five years studying at a university, after traveling and learning about different cultures.

What do you appreciate most about your education?

I appreciate how Waldorf Education has made me feel safe to be completely myself. The way we learn is unique and really helps you reach deep and have some fun at the same time.

What would you tell a prospective student about coming to Green Meadow?

To a prospective student I'd say: you're going to meet so many wonderful people at Green Meadow and make many lasting friendships. You will learn so much in the classroom and through some great hands-on experiences. Get ready to answer the question, "What is eurythmy?"
