    "My son is a senior and has been at Kimberton since kindergarten. Kindergarten was truly a delightful experience for us all, and through parent education, we learned how to create a truly nurturing daily routine suitable for the young child that did not include mind numbing media (tv, radio, Internet) and electronics. Grades one through eight were sweet and satisfactory. The rigor of the high school is challenging and it takes time for some to make the transistion from middle school. The school is not really set up for children with intense learning challenges. Teachers are demanding and good grades are not given without serious effort by the students. While it's not a perfect fit for evyone, this liberal arts education is very special, and one that strives to empower students to suceed in college and in life. A graduate has the confidence to meet the world head on with a creative and postitive spirit. I highly recommend a visit."

    "This school seems to be going through an identity crisis. It is either so rooted in Steiner and not able to open up to what our changing world and children need or it is trying to match up to it's private school neighbors. The way in which this school is lead is disheartening, there is a core (senior) members whom will support themselves even if it means being deceitful and untruthful. Yes, it sits on an amazing campus. But if one looks beyond the cows, hills and land you will find that this school lacks in so much. As for the teachers there are teachers at KWS that continue to bully, shame, judge, and label children. This school is very far from teaching from head, heart and hand. There is no place for a child to go or parent to go to address any concerns. Basically there is no parent voice. And, if your child has any kind of difficulty then for get it, this school is not skilled in supporting any kind of learning or behavioral challenges . KWS is very good at wowing you in and looking wonderful, but truly it is not at all an education worth paying for or subjecting your child too."

    "I moved back to Chester County specifically so that my daughter could enroll at Kimberton Waldorf School. She's in the early childhood program now, but I love that Kimberton covers the full spectrum of child development, from 18 months through 18 years. I also love that the teachers and staff are so dedicated to letting a child's life unfold naturally and COMPLETELY. Where else could you find such a strong academic curriculum interlaced with such strong artistic and practical curricula? I look forward to my daughter experiencing thermal physics, gardening and food preservation, Norse Mythology, blacksmithing and woodworking, German language and culture, creating conic sections out of clay, canoeing and hiking several miles a day (not to mention having gourmet meals prepared by the campfire) on the Odyssey Trip, world history, knitting and felting... I could go on and on. I am so in love with Kimberton Waldorf School."

    "As a Parent of two graduates, and a continuing participant in the life of KWS, I continue to be impressed with the breadth of interests and ability to think shown by students who go to school here. Teachers are engaged and knowledgeable in their areas and bring education in a way just beginning to be supported by current brain research. A wonderful education for the whole person, heart, head and hands."
