School Reviews

My two children have attending the Waldof School of Baltimore from 1st through 8th grade. What is special about this school is how much the children love the school and how well they develop into good students who do well in High School. My kids never complained that "they did not want to go to school today". They felt comforatable and valued by this school. I cannot think of a better gift that I could have given them than spending the money that I did to give them this education.

My son, currently in 5th grade, has been attending the Waldorf School of Baltimore since nursery school. Originally we had planned to send him to public school after kindergarten, thinking that there was no way that we could afford private school, but once we visited the first grade classroom and saw how different and special the school is, we knew we had to find a way to make it work. I am pleased to report that WSB has a robust financial aid program; our experience has been that it you are committed to having your child at this school, the school will be just as committed to helping make that happen. The curriculum is tailored to the needs of the developing child, and the care the teachers take to create community in the classroom means that bullying and cliques are nonexistent. My child is the kind of kid who would have done fine in most school environments, though he is so quiet that he probably would have slipped through the cracks. At this school, he has absolutely thrived, and that is a testament to the care of the teachers and the strengths of the school itself.
