Transportation & Busing
We want to make Green Meadow as accessible as possible for all of our current and potential students.
New York City busing, from the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the Riverdale section of the Bronx, and Tarrytown in Westchester County, began in September 2019. Contact admissions director Katharina Glaser for details and questions about fees.
Families who live in New York, within 15 miles of the school, should contact their school district to arrange busing. Reach out to our registrar, Kathy Hoehmann, with questions. Please note, the deadline to register for New York State busing through your school district is April 1. Busing cannot be guaranteed for families who register after this date.
Some Green Meadow families in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut choose to carpool. Admissions Director Katharina Glaser can help you connect to families in your area.
A Suburban School Close to City Resources and Upstate Wilderness
Green Meadow Waldorf School’s campus in Chestnut Ridge resembles a small village. The campus includes six instructional buildings on 11 acres, with ample playgrounds and athletic fields. Our extended community is comprised of 200 adjacent acres for our families’ use, offering a beautiful rural environment of forests and fields, and providing opportunities for our students to bring their curriculum to life by connecting classroom lessons to real-world experiences. Kindergarteners feed chickens and gather eggs; third-graders milk cows and harvest biodynamic crops; sixth-graders sow seeds and tend the garden.
We are located near the NY/NJ border, near Bergen County, Essex County, Hudson County, and Passaic County in NJ, and close to Westchester County, Orange County, and Putnam County in NY.
Our proximity to New York City (only 20 miles north of the George Washington Bridge) and the natural beauty of New York state further serve to round out our students’ education by providing easy access to a myriad of class trips, ranging from one day to one week.
Our students come from about 90 towns and 13 counties.
