    "Our daughter and son have been at Greenwood for 3 years and are currently in 4th and 6th grades. We moved from NY and chose Mill Valley in large part because of Greenwood. It's a Waldorf inspired school started 20 years ago in a home on Mt. Tam that draws from the wisdom of Waldorf education and adds NEST (nature and environmental stewardship) and a program on social emotional awareness. Our kids have thrived at Greenwood, the academics are very strong and inspire creative thinking - we think that is crucial to their future - and they really love going to school. Their teachers are really dedicated, talented and passionate. A new school head, Archie Douglas, joined in June 2014 following a national search and he brings 29 years of experience and a great heart to the school (recently he ran the #1 public charter school in California and is a graduate of Yale and Harvard). Graduates of Greenwood are sought after by Bay Area High Schools (for example last year 75% of the class got into Marin Academy) and are an impressive group and good kids."

    "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.""
