I am a parent of 2 children at the Emerson Waldorf School. I have a 1st Grader and a 4th Grader currently. We have been incredibly satisfied by the academic program, the emphasis on the arts, and the overall educational approach. Both of our children are happy and thriving. They are challenged in a positive way in that they do not feel stress or anxiety in regards to the academic expectations.
