A diamond in the rough!... I feel so lucky to be able to send my child to Waldorf of Louisville. My son was attending one of the highest-ranked public schools in Kentucky, unsuccessfully- he was miserable, bullied and medically neglected. I visited this school on a whim, as it was one of my wildest dreams to send my kiddo here- to such an institution that could encapsulate him with nature, friends, and childhood wonder. I was prepared to continue my child lonely in homeschool and was shocked with a tuition assistance award that has allowed him to attend (now his second year!). I feel very blessed and so much relief because my son is truly delighted to go to school each day, and WSL has been more than accommodating to his extensive special needs! Also, parental involvement in any or all processes of school/education is warmly welcomed and encouraged. It is comforting to find yourself with other adults having or offering solutions to any parenting concerns/struggles at different stages/ages of your growing child. A genuinely loving community is nurtured with a common goal of laying down great groundwork, which allows each child to blossom to his/her fullest potential, as we all maintain awareness and enjoyment with our child and community throughout the journey of these precious years and into whatever may come beyond 8th grade... Bonus perks too long to list include foreign languages, gardening, chickens! woodwork, handwork, violin/cello instruction, thoughtful traditions and to top it off a teacher who knows and develops in-depth each child`s strengths and weaknesses- while he or she actually moves with your child through the grades! 5 stars aren`t into to express what a gem WSL is...

Our family loves this school! WSL offers arts-infused academics, a variety of specialty classes, seasonal celebrations and performances and attracts a wonderful community of families. The parent enrichment component (workshops, talks, etc) has been a game changer for my approach to understanding and connecting with my children. Highly recommend.

We moved to Louisville in the summer before my daughter started third grade. We toured the school, did our diligent research, and decided to send her. The school is small, inviting, where you feel like part of a family. I like, as one reviewer put it, that the school "focuses on the entire mind, body, and spirit of the child." No bubble wrap, over protective with battleship grey walls here. Here, your child can have a childhood, the childhood essential for proper development, where learning is part of life and boldly embraced as an adventure, not a scantron sheet where you pick 1 of 5 choices.

I would highly recommend a Waldorf education for anyone looking for a school for their children that focuses on the entire mind, body, and spirit of the child. Waldorf recognizes that children are children and need to play and learn. The academic programs are of the highest quality (They offer multiple languages, Spanish and Japanese). The teachers care for the children, and even help to educate the parents on the philosophy of the school, and the programs. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.
