With three kids at Camellia, we couldn't be happier. Our kids are thriving, and happy to go to school every single day. The school provides such a rich sense of community; the curriculum is beautiful, and we couldn't recommend Camellia more!

Camellia Waldorf School is a wonderful school, truly a special place. It's been an amazing place for my two daughters, who are both thriving, with the older one now in high school and excelling.

We have been at Camellia Waldorf School since 2010. I have three children, each of them very different from the other. CWS has been able to serve each one of them, in very unique ways. Beyond blessed to have found this school!

This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
