This school may be the best kept secret of Baltimore-area schools! We have been at the school 6 years and believe our child is receiving the highest quality education possible to enable him to be a well rounded, successful life-long learner. What more could you ask for?

I am so glad to have found this school! My son is thriving at Waldorf. With a main teacher that will stay with him throughout the elementary years and outdoor time (that all boys need) he enjoys going to school everyday. His favorite class is handwork which has been helpful in his concentration level for other tasks. I was amazed at the cultural breadth I experienced at the Thanksgiving assembly - Greek, Jewish, Spanish, music & dance all validated my Thanks for what the school gives us everyday in our children.

My two children have attending the Waldof School of Baltimore from 1st through 8th grade. What is special about this school is how much the children love the school and how well they develop into good students who do well in High School. My kids never complained that "they did not want to go to school today". They felt comforatable and valued by this school. I cannot think of a better gift that I could have given them than spending the money that I did to give them this education.

My son, currently in 5th grade, has been attending the Waldorf School of Baltimore since nursery school. Originally we had planned to send him to public school after kindergarten, thinking that there was no way that we could afford private school, but once we visited the first grade classroom and saw how different and special the school is, we knew we had to find a way to make it work. I am pleased to report that WSB has a robust financial aid program; our experience has been that it you are committed to having your child at this school, the school will be just as committed to helping make that happen. The curriculum is tailored to the needs of the developing child, and the care the teachers take to create community in the classroom means that bullying and cliques are nonexistent. My child is the kind of kid who would have done fine in most school environments, though he is so quiet that he probably would have slipped through the cracks. At this school, he has absolutely thrived, and that is a testament to the care of the teachers and the strengths of the school itself.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
