STUDENT LIFE AT CWS
Beginning in Fifth Grade, Cincinnati Waldorf School students have the privilege to participate in interscholastic athletics. Currently, our teams include co-ed soccer, girls volleyball, and girls and boys basketball and cross country. Participating on school athletic teams gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their skills of social grace and sportsmanship as they compete against peers from other local schools. Game officials and opposing coaches routinely comment on the quality of character of our CWS student-athletes. Over 90% of our sixth, seventh and eighth graders participate on an interscholastic sports team.
In 6th through 8th grades, two students from each class are elected by their peers to serve on Student Council. At their weekly meetings Student Council representatives cultivate an attitude of service within the student body while learning to coordinate effectively amongst themselves, working with the faculty of our school, and supporting various charitable organizations. To stay connected to the current needs of the student body, they host monthly town hall style meetings to gain input from their classmates.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
There are many opportunities for CWS students to explore a variety of interests during after-school hours. As different programming is offered each year, the students may elect to expand upon their physical, emotional, and or mental faculties beyond what they already receive in the classroom. Club options have included chess, knitting, Spanish, Girls on the Run, and folk dancing.
