- Looking for the right education for your family can be enlightening, challenging, or frustrating. There are many options and many more opinions to consider when choosing this important long-term influence to your family's values. Finding the right 'fit' might be an immediate recognition or at the end of much thought and deliberation. Whatever the steps to the right decision, once made, the relation between school and family wants to grow and flourish so that the child feels held by adults who share common aims and values. Although one can make impressive claims, the proof is really in the 'fruits'. We encourage anyone seriously looking to bring human values to life in their family to visit and experience what happens daily, yearly and continually in the lives of those who participate in the independent Waldorf approach to education.

This school has been and is a wonderful place for my 2 children. They are happy, learning many different and fun things, being nourished from the inside out, and getting a quality waldorf education. We are small but we are committed!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
