  • Before even considering this school, research anthrosophy and ask very specific questions about HOW much math is taught each day. Ask what history and science (very little actually) will be taught in lower grades and will the school accommodate an early reader (no they won't). And get tuition insurance, so if you are unhappy with the school and the lack of emphasis placed on academics you can get your tuition refunded. I am a former Waldorf parent. I have intimate knowledge with this school and its practices. There are other schools, better schools, pass this woefully inadequate, albeit lovely pastel school by.

  • My two children attend and love the school. The staff and fellow parents are always friendly and helpful. It feels like a tight-knit community that is truly caring.

  • Absolutely awful - security concerns - they are just winging it. Ask them about graduates! Watch them squirm!

  • My child has had a wonderful experience here from kindergarten through eighth grade. He has had loving, caring teachers with a genuine interest in helping him to become the best person he can be. He has grown so much through the many subjects taught here. He is a lover of art, literature, math, mapmaking, music, woodwork, drama, beauty, adventure and learning. Through the guidance of teachers he has developed a strong moral character and a thoughtfulness for others. I couldn't be more pleased.

  • awful experience; our teacher told several students that they were "not smart," and refused to stop doing this, even at parent request, saying "I know what I'm doing."

  • my family and child had a horrible experience at this school. The leadership can be very unresponsive to genuine problems
