My family has been associated with this school for many years. We currently have grades age children enrolled. We have been very pleased with the way our children are being met as whole individuals. I see our children blossoming as confident, kind, self-aware and intelligent people. I feel blessed to have found a place where my children's unique gifts are being fostered while simultaneously they are challenged to grow in new directions. They learn in a positive and meaningful way. My kids could not be more different from each other, yet I see them both thriving in the Waldorf environment. The school has a lot of heart and a great community of people. While the school's communications were not great or frequent years ago time has brought improvement in leaps and bounds.

Our daughter is now in the 6th grade and has been attending The Waldorf School of St. Louis since pre-K. The school has been a wonderful, nurturing place for growth and learning for our daughter and we love it! The teachers and the school community are fantastic -- full of intelligent, dedicated and caring teachers and families. Our daughter has become healthy, confident, mature, creative and independent as a result of attending this school, and she loves it as well. The Waldorf School is the antidote to many ills present in modern-day society and really encourages creative and artistic expression and intellectual curiosity.
