    "The campus is a wonderful place to grow up. When I was little, I remember climbing in the forrest and playing by the river. There was an amazing tire swing on the farm, as well as a variety of animals. The overall experience of being a student at SWS is very rewarding. I feel that if I went to a different school, I would not be the person I am today. If someone asked me about any class I took, I would be able to tell them how it effected me, and broadened my world view, wether through learning about people around the world, or listening to other students ask questions."

    "I love the teachers at SWS. I feel like students each have a personal relationship with at least one teacher. The diversity in content that is taught at SWS is one of my favorite things about the school. I have learned how to weave a basket as well as learn the complex orders of nucleic acids and how ancient mythology is relevant in our everyday lives. I could not wish for a better education and better teachers."

    "Overall, the teachers here are amazing. They love the subjects they teacher, and that passion is evident in almost every lesson. I never had a teacher who did not go many the extra miles for his or her students. They would meet with us before school, during lunch, after school, offered tutoring (some for free some for a hefty fee), told us about opportunities near and far, offered extra credit, extensions (though sometimes too many), and knew each and every student well enough to tell us what we were struggling with and how we could do better (and offered to help). While most (if not all) had favorites, only some were very poor at hiding (or did not hide at all) who those favorites were, and gave them even more help. Conversely, it was usually those same teachers who were also very poor at hiding their least favorites."

    "It's okay. Most "lifers", who have attended Waldorf for all of their academic life up until college, really struggle their first year at college, regardless of how well they did at Waldorf. Some do well, but for most it is really hard to have to really learn how to study, take tests, prepare, organize, and meet deadlines. This is largely do to the small school size and supportive community at Waldorf, which can (and often does) lead to softer grading, extended deadlines, and turning a blind eye to identical answers by multiple students. Most students quickly find out the teachers who will give an entire term of extensions, without penalty, after a few weeks, if they do not already know. They can also figure out which classes are easy As, and which teachers will go out of their way for them. That being said, those students have also learned that college is not the end-all-be-all, and graduate knowing that a four-year degree does not equal happiness or success, and many have been given the support and guidance to better help them figure out what career paths and options they would actually enjoy doing."

    "Waldorf was a great school to take arts and humanities in. However, many students struggled when the college testing time came, because they either did not know the answers to the questions or simply did not know how to take standardized tests. Since so many of the students come from families who are either well off (i.e. upper class but will not admit it) or have lots of disposable income, many took the tests multiple times and paid for tutors and lessons. The school is not that diverse economically or racially, and those who are not wealthy and/or white have voiced issues with the denial of privilege and the sense of entitlement at this school. Many students openly state that their are better than public school students as well as private Catholic school students."
