    "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."

    "We have two children at Greenwood School, as we come to the close of our 5th year we are pleased with their education. The early childhood program (preschool and kindergarten) is excellent. I can only wish that all children would be blessed with early education that is committed to imagination and play, rather than academic rigor at such an early age. Moving through the grades provides children with a well-balanced experience -- the NEST (nature) program is 2nd to none -- the children are out, learning about their community, nature, and how to best protect and serve the environment; they are reading and developing strong language arts skills; the school is continually striving to meet the children's math needs, the music program is terrific,... Most importantly my children want to go to school each and every day. Yes, there have been some tumultuous times administratively, Greenwood School continues to strive to be the best it can be, this is trying at times, but growth and improvement is essential to providing the best education possible. The current teachers are strong and experienced educators. The interim director that was hired this year is just what the school needed."

    "Greenwood has some real challenges in terms of preparing the students for high school. Once the kids enter high school unless they continue with a very small isolated school they get very overwhelmed socially. There has been some real heartache and challenges integrating. I would ask around the community to get a real sense of the challenges."
