School Reviews

We have been so happy with the Upper Valley Waldorf School! Our two children have experienced both the early childhood program (through kindergarten) and the grade school experience. The particularly thoughtful way that material is introduced to children based on their developmental ability leads to amazing curriculum choices. And the emphasis on art and music has been a real joy. The rich storytelling, the painting and the "games" (gym) classes are some of my kids'' favorites. I love that my nine year old has violin three times per week, and has already learned to sing complex rounds with his class. He reads extremely well for his age, and was introduced to multiplication and division in first grade.
