    "Our children have been at greenwood since kindergarten. (Currently 5th and 7th.) The LOVE school and actually talk about how much they will miss it all the time. The education they are recieving transcends my highest hopes; the approach is awe inspiring. The faculty are six-star quality. The director is just about as articulate and soulful as they come. If you're thinking about it, come meet the older students. They're still teenagers but they look you in the eye. They are awake, inspired, and haven't been entirely subsumed by popular media. (These kids don't have iphones attached to their hands 24/7.) The community aspect makes the journey a profound one. This place isn't for everyone but it sure is for us. One more thing: if beauty matters to you, this must be the most beautiful campus in Marin County."

    "Our family has just started our third year at Greenwood. My son (5) has just started his first year of Kindergarten after completing two years of pre-school and my daughter (2.9) starts pre-school this year. I appreciate that the school allows kids to be kids. This school supports experiential learning, creative arts, nature and the holistic development. In Pre-K and K, my children are learning how to play well with others, conflict resolution, impulse control, fine motor skills, how to sit still and listen. The staff is incredible, the school has a homey, safe, natural, beautiful environment, and the children are so sweet, respectful and well-spoken. And, I m impressed with the older children (6th, 7th, 8th graders), they all seem to have a well-developed self-confidence you don t find in many adolescent children. There is real attention and care given to each family and each child's individual development. At the end of the day, my children are excited to go to school and maintaining that excitement and love for education, my kids will thrive."

    "Greenwood School educates our children at every level. We wanted our children to leave school inspired to learn. We wanted them to be nurtured. For us - having our children leave with an excellent education in who they are, how to be in the world, how to deal with social situations and conflict is equally as important as learning academics during the formative grade years. Greenwood provides both. It also has arts and music built into the curriculum reducing the stress and expense of adding on 'enrichment' activities. After some years of transition Greenwood is now on a very firm footing with experienced teachers and strong leadership. Take a tour and see for yourself."

    "I have been a parent at Greenwood School for 7 years. My children have benefited greatly from the Waldorf-inspired education they are receiving. They are exceptionally creative, artistic, and have also tested extremely high in math -- one of the stereotypical concerns about Waldorf education. I'm very happy with the Waldorf approach to education and my children have had some pretty amazing teachers. The school is currently searching for a new Head of School and I'm hopeful that new leadership will bring stability to a school that serves its children well. The school is best for parents who have an interest in letting their kids be kids, are seeking a community with similar values, and are interested in an education that develops the "whole child.""

    "I am shocked by some reviews. Let's start by saying: we love our school, actually it is not just a school for us, it is our community. We have been at Greenwood for over 11 years, our daughter graduated 3 years ago and we are still impress by how prepared she is academically and socially. She holds her true values firmly and she is ready to face the world with all it's beauty and inequities. She still cherish all the time she spend at Greenwood and especially, all the "nature day". She brings a wonderful fresh eye in all her classes, she is not burned out like most of her peers, she is a joy to have around (she is 17!). I have a 6th grader, he loves school and does amazingly, my priorities have always been to teach children kindness before everything, because it is the most powerful tool for happiness, then to be challenge to do the best YOU can do, regardless of other's capabilities, respect of the environment, ect.. This is exactly what Greenwood stands for.. All the graduates that I know (which are many) are doing great in high school, they are doing as well as they could do. We love Greenwood and we really love to see our children skipping to school every morning, always happy."
