This annual report highlights our financial results and school achievements for the 2015-16 fiscal year. We are fortunate that our hard work has laid a firm foundation for continued growth. The school is in strong financial shape, and enrollment is at an historic high. During the year, we expanded class room space and increased sta�ng to accommodate our enrollment growth. Our accomplishments during the 2015-16 fiscal year included: pioneering the role of faculty chair, completing a school wide climate survey as part of an Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM Survey), and defining Phase I of our master plan for future building renovation and expansion.

We continued to work towards our Strategic Plan priorities during the 2015-16 fiscal year. Our three overarching goals include:

• Quality and Excellence in our Educational Programs • A Vital and Sustainable School Community • Beauty and Functionality in our School Spaces

The College of Teachers, Board of Trustees and Administration met throughout the year to monitor progress towards strategic goals and further outline the steps necessary to sustain our growth and development. We look to the future with excitement as we work together, staying rooted in service to our current students, and having the vision to dream of what our school will become.

It is only with the support of our entire community that we are able to provide the gift of Waldorf education to our current students while also preparing to serve the students of the future. We are so grateful for the support we receive from current families, alumni families, grandparents, friends and local businesses. Please accept our gratitude for your past contributions of time, talent and resources as we work together to serve the children of our times.
