    "My child goes to this school and I love the rich and loving learning environment they have created. Their philosophy is to teach the "head, heart, and hands." As a result, not only is my child learning the regular school stuff, but she is also learning how to be a better person. I also love the way our values are supported by the school and other families-- healthy nutrition, care for the environment, mindfulness, protecting childhood, simplicity parenting, and the list goes on. It's such a good, wholesome environment filled with good people and amazing teachers who give 200% every day. We are so fortunate to have a Waldorf school in our community."

    "We didn't think we were Waldorf people at first, but we were wrong! This school has changed our son's life. He loves his teacher, loves learning, enjoys each of his 15 classmates. He had issues in early childhood at this school with an aggressive peer and the school handled it beautifully and now my son gets along with his former bully. As far as learning goes, we've been amazed. The teachers talk with us about his gifts, in addition to what he needs to work on. They understand kids at this school and keep them moving and engaged. My son's favorite classes? Handwork (sewing), Spanish and Music. We could not be happier and are purposefully not moving from the area until he graduates from their 8th grade."

    "While this school uses the brand name, Waldorf, it is far from a Waldorf school. Children are treated as second-class citizens. I made the mistake with one of my children, but not the other. In a word, terrible. One or two good teachers and certainly an administration without class. Don't let this school ruin your children!"

    "I have three boys in this school from 7th grade to kindergarten. It flat out works for us. As a parent what I see is great blend of strong academics plus emphasis on music, art, play, language skills and handwork. They are teaching my kids how to learn and the boys simply love it. My son cried last year when he was sick and couldn't go to school. The faculty make it engaging, relevant and fun. It works for us."

    "I have been a parent at Spring Garden for 10 years. I love the way my children experience learning through this incredible curriculum. The school is a great community and the relationships that are established here are truly lifelong. My children love school and enjoy learning. They are learning to work collaboratively and are able to engage with people. When they graduate from SGWS, I know that they will be prepared for the challenges in high school, college, and beyond, in large part, because of their experience at Spring Garden."
