    "I was tricked into joining this school as from the surface it appears to be a wonderful place where all types of people are tolerated. When you go deeper into the curriculum you realize it is nothing like that at all. Most parents don't bother to research the founder, Rudolf Steiner, and his beliefs. First of all he was not a parent so he truly knows nothing about children. Secondly he believed that the white race is the supreme race and will slowly brainwash your child with this theory so upon graduation your child is a soldier for the Illuminati. Also, the staff and faculty are so completely brainwashed that they really have no idea as to what is being taught. Except Shaheer Faltas who is notorious in the Waldorf world for being brought to a school that is otherwise failing. His job is to resurrect the fallen financial structure of the school and then he will move on to the next one that is in trouble. Stay away from here as it is facade to get the parents who are all about natural, healthy alternatives to public schools. Parents who should and would home school are their prey."

    "I agree wholeheartedly with the review of Feb 1, 2015. My son no longer goes to Journey School for the same reasons, some of the teachers are great but admin lacks objectivity, fairness and professionalism."

    "Hello, Please take the rave reviews about this school with a grain of salt. Note how many of them were written in the same time frame (a request for positive loading perhaps?) & that less than glowing reviews don't stay on-site long. As I write this my child is requesting one star; however, since this school does have some very good teachers, that would not be fair. As noted, Ms. B is an excellent, warm, and caring instructor. Others may also claim this accolade but, please note, your experience with this school is VERY teacher specific. Get a good one & all will be well. Have difficulty with any & wish to address it - watch your back & that of your child. Additionally, the school is growing too quickly & failing to integrate its' vaunted values into the ongoing character of the school within this growth situation. Bullying is to be watched for as the administration will scramble to cover up any incident which shows the school in a poor light rather than properly address issues. Parents who wish to improve the school & speak up are often shut down then driven out. Much is gloss. Seek out those who have left & hear them out; don't rely on the raves only."

    "We love Journey School and are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of its community. Journey isn't perfect, but I see the administration and teachers working so hard every day to meet the needs of all of the children--although that's never easy at a public school."

    "If you are looking for a school where the teachers and staff really get to know your child and help them blossom into upright people who not only know how to think critically, but who also know how to care for themselves, others, and the environment, then Journey School is a good choice. We are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful school."
