    "Fundamentally different way of molding the minds of our next generation - a highly committed group of teachers and staff make this magic happen. If I could go back to school again- it would be to this school."

    "My children both started at Waldorf Grade School in the 5th grade. They were immediately welcomed by both teachers and students and made to feel at home. I have been completely won over by the incredible dedication of the teachers, the enthusiasm of the students and the entire school community. My oldest now attends the high school in West Portal -- a beautiful building with a tremendous green landscape out the back windows. The education is rigorous, with extremely tough classes in honors math up through calculus, demanding humanities and strong language offerings. I really appreciate that art, music, dance and performance are integrated directly into the curriculum without any loss of academic rigor. I also appreciate the vitality of the sports programs. It is a smaller school, but the varsity teams are competitive in their division and school spirit is high! I would highly recommend that parents looking for a high school that combines strong academics, arts, sports and a philosophy that teaches the whole child check out Waldorf High School!"

    "Waldorf High School was a life-changer for my creative son who was wilting under the pervasive "Teach to the Test" mandate in public schools. He entered Waldorf in high school and by his senior year was making straight A's after poor to mediocre grades in middle school. He was accepted at a selective liberal arts college and used Waldorf school projects to easily put together a fabulous portfolio. Certain students may not do so well at Waldorf: kids with drug problems, mean girls, or those less creative who can only thrive in the robotic pedagogy of your average public high school. Gifted students, nice kids, artists, musicians, super smart young people -- they are more likely to thrive in a less structured teaching environment. My son found all his Waldorf classes interesting and engaging and the teachers all had advanced degrees. Waldorf is about educating the whole child -- encouraging academic excellence but also requiring creativity and good character. When it comes to the teen years, peer influence is all important. Waldorf is extremely anti-drug and anti-alcohol for developing young minds. If you want a safe place for a creative kid to thrive, Waldorf is the school."

    "My daughter is a senior at Waldorf. All in all, as a parent, I am not impressed with the education and the level of teaching she has gotten over the last four years. Teachers may have their Masters and Phd s, however, their consistency and ability to act as mature adults - meant to inspire and positively influence students is far below average. From the lack of textbooks, to their inability to maintain coaches on their sports team - my daughter played volleyball up to her Junior year, when she was told by the new coach her postion would be given to a freshman who wa able to attend summer practices - this happened to the majority of returning Senior vollelyball players. Don t even get me started on Eurythmy - a farce too unbeliveable to describe. If you don t have any other choice but Waldorf - inorder to avoid public school - take my advice and keep your student far away from the Eurythmy group. And encourgae them instead to take up a sports team outside of school. Did I mention the teacher, who today yelled at his class to "Shut the F up"? except he actaully used the F word - without consequence from the other teacher in the classroom."
