I have two children who had not attended Waldorf schools previously and who are attending this high school. They are both thrilled with it. The school has created a very warm community environment, and overall the other students are really nice. The teachers are excellent, and my teens find the curriculum interesting and sufficiently challenging. I feel really lucky that we found a high school that emphasizes good values (meaningful community service every year, no bullying, etc.) and where both of my children could flourish. I can't say enough good things about this school!

I have two students at this school. This is a warm community, with interesting academics and wonderful teachers who really get to know and care about each student. I was not sure initially if my kids would like it because they had not been at a Waldorf school previously, but that ultimately did not make any different. There is quite a diverse mix of students. The sports are accessible to everyone who wants to get involved, whether or not they are good athletes. The academics can be challenging for those who want challenge, and there is also extra help available for students who need it, I see a lot of happy teens at this little Waldorf High School, which I definitely do not see at a lot of other schools!

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.
