My children attended Live Oak eleven years each, preschool through eighth grade. I believe it educated the fully, and prepared both of them to be critical thinking, creative, responsible, courageous , and compassionate human beings. They are both happy people generally speaking and they are both comfortable in who they are, willing to share their gifts and talents and willing to work with their challenges. Live Oak`s wonderful teachers not only taught my children, that loved them and supported them in the truest sense of community.

We love Live Oak Waldorf for the dedicated teachers all of my children have, who are committed to their whole human development. We love Live Oak for the community connection, my children are growing up with support from a village, everyone knows each other and tries their best to support each other. We love Live Oak for the no stress, joyful learning environment that is TRULY developmentally appropriate which gives my children confidence and TIME to really learn so that they enjoy learning and want to know more. Thank you Live Oak Waldorf for staying the course of a true Waldorf school, that comes along with all sorts of challenges that are not always easy. We are ever so grateful for what you give our children and our family.
