Sincere thanks to our teachers, whose commitment and interest in the wellbeing of our students plays a vital part in their success. And thank you to the parents of the Class of 2021 for their continued support, encouragement, and fortitude throughout the year.

Dear parents, Michael Mount offers our students far more than a good matric. Our unique Waldorf curriculum encourages students to excel as unique individuals, so they may go into the world as

“Free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.”

—Rudolf Steiner

Subsequently, we take this moment not only to celebrate all our students’ academic achievements, but also the well-rounded, confident human beings they have grown into over the course of their schooling.

Congratulations, dear Class of 2021! We wish you all the best as you go forward in life.
