Our non-profit organisation, Libre Ecole Rudolf Steiner, explores issues of general interest. Membership is open to all. Its secular and non-political work is centred on the following:
The Steiner Waldorf School of Verrières-Le-Buisson has existed since 1977
Our school was founded in Paris on July 3, 1955. In 1977, we moved to our current school grounds in Verrières-le-Buisson, a vast property historically known as le clos Clairbourg. The campus is a splendid green space spread across 3 hectares, with a 19th-century Norman-style manor at its heart.
Located 9 km southwest of Paris, the school is surrounded by the towns of Massy, Palaiseau, Antony, Châtenay-Malabry, Igny, Saclay, Bièvres, and Verrières-le-Buisson.

On these school grounds, students experience the seasons directly. The nearby forest of Verrières-le-Buisson means it is easy to plan class excursions into the woods. Indeed, our kindergarteners and younger students take weekly forest walks.
Over time, the school has grown and transformed. At present, around 40 teachers work with 350 children, with enrolment spanning the range from kindergarten (2.5 years old) to high school.
The school’s classrooms occupy several different buildings with a total surface area of about 3,700 m². The campus also boasts numerous workshops dedicated to carpentry, sculpture & pottery, metalworking, sewing, the fine arts, music, and eurythmy.
To expand its activities, the school acquired a magnificent 400-seat theatre in 1989 (Espace Odilon Redon).
Every school day, students sit down for lunch between noon and 1.30 pm.
Around 400 meals are served, all prepared entirely on site by our four-member kitchen crew. Meal preparation adheres to a quality charter drawn up in collaboration with culinary staff at other Steiner Waldorf schools.
Fresh organic and biodynamic products are delivered daily. Special meals are available for vegetarians and students with food intolerances or allergies.
Teachers eat lunch with their students in the dining hall. Everyone serves themselves and helps with clearing the tables.
