So much time spent outdoors and learning led in part by the children's interests. Language skills and hand work skills in small classes. My kids love this school!

The absolute best school for my children! Not only are they learning their academics, arts, music and hand crafts, they are, most importantly, learning to be good, kind human beings. Does it get any better than that?

Outstanding school with effective alternative educational philosophy. My kids are thriving in ways I never dreamed. The teachers are the best asset of this place. Caring, calm, wise, and overall the best people I`ve ever known.

A Waldorf education is a gift that inspires a lifelong love of learning. It is one of the wisest choices we decided to give our daughter to round out her very structured, traditional education. She absolutely loves this school, the happy, friendly, wide-eyed, kind kids, 5-acres of forests and hundreds of acres of conservation land with trails, and warm-hearted teachers. And who knew, she'd love German, knitting and other handwork crafts, in addition to learning to speak Greek and Spanish, pick up strings again, and deeply learn classical studies and participate in a pentathlon in Canada?. The hands-on, creative, integrated, multi-disciplinary curriculum celebrates learning while engaging and honoring the children's mind, body, emotions and spirit -- it truly educates the whole child in a rigorous academic, arts-integrated, nature-centric, low-media, physically-active curriculum. I am thrilled, as a tech executive, that Waldorf schools worldwide understand the cultivation of a young human being is a sacred and offline endeavor. The teachers are all intellectually inspiring, deeply caring and engaged with their students and families. The community is celebratory, creative, thriving, happy .... and growing quickly, The administrators are fantastic.

Seacoast Waldorf School has been an excellent choice for our 6th grade son. It has allowed my son to rediscover learning that has meaning to him. Its an active hands on project based education where can spend time in the woods, time working with his hands, and time to be part of the creative process instead of grinding out results designed for state and federal metrics. He is getting the math, art and science but in a more dynamic way. He came home two days ago talking about the roman aqueduct he will design for report he is doing - art and math with come together! The administration is top notch along with the teachers. The school is thriving.

I have three kiddos attending Tidewater - ages 3, 5 & 7. Our experience has been so fantastic. The incredible toddler / pre-school and Kindergarten classes, small ''grades'' class sizes, excellent teachers, and community of involved, like-minded parents mean our kids are getting lots of nurturing and are developing a real love of learning. Can't recommend Tidewater enough!
