School Reviews

Great School - I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place they can feel good about and their child will love to learn and love school.
- Posted by Parent, 07/24/15
Our family relocated to Lancaster County after a statewide school search. Susquehanna Waldorf offers a whole-person education, caring for the mind, spirit and will of each child. Our daughters are currently enrolled in Kindergarden and First Grade. We deeply appreciate that the Early Childhood program nurtures our youngest daughter, allowing for creative and imaginative play, without pushing her to begin academics. Our First Grader, who is school-ready, is offered a rich and wonderful curriculum (including Spanish and Mandarin classes).
