School Reviews

The Waldorf School of Princeton has given our daughter a rigorous, disciplined education where the arts and movement play an integral part making the lessons come alive. Waldorf pedagogy is based on thoughtful insights into child development (physical, emotional and spiritual) that meets students at their precise stage of development so that lessons can be deeply and completely learned. The tools of technology and media exposure are sidelined in favor of giving each child a greater opportunity to become completely immersed in the experience of their education. The product - seen at the 8th Grade graduation when each child addresses the assembly - is an unusually mature, poised and enthusiastic high-school student who invariably succeeds in whatever they do. We are so fortunate that our daughter is at this school!
