School Reviews

I have two children who had not attended Waldorf schools previously and who are attending this high school. They are both thrilled with it. The school has created a very warm community environment, and overall the other students are really nice. The teachers are excellent, and my teens find the curriculum interesting and sufficiently challenging. I feel really lucky that we found a high school that emphasizes good values (meaningful community service every year, no bullying, etc.) and where both of my children could flourish. I can't say enough good things about this school!
