    "I believe that my children are getting the best education that they can in the Waldorf/Southern MD area. They love to learn and read, the Montessori method also encourages them to seek out further challenges at home and be helpful. My son excels in math, and he continues to be challenged. He's also enthusiastic about going to school and enjoys science experiments that are made available to him. In public schools, there is a basic average level in each area that your chid needs to be at. Here, if your child needs help in an area, the teacher will work with the student, if s/he is doing great in a subject area, the teacher can keep presenting more challenging work in that subject, but at the same time not overwhelm the child. The pace of learning is set to your child, not the other way around."

    "I have 2 children at the Beddow school and couldn't be happier. To briefly touch 2 areas discussed by other reviewers, there is a wonderful new playground area, and there is an alarm on the back door in case of students letting themselves out. I work at 6 county schools and can attest that there is no such alarm at any of them! I give a sigh of relief every day when I pick my kids up knowing they haven't been exposed to the low standards, foul language, etc. that goes on in the public schools. My 4 year old is reading well, writing cursive, doing 4 digit addition, and can identify all continents. My 7 year old can read a 125 page book in an hour, is working on parts of speech, can multiply 4 digit numbers, and can identify more countries than I can. They both have French class once a week. Most importantly, they have a love for learning that I rarely see in the public schools. My experience is that people that make problems have problems, don't be swayed by a few low ratings. This is a wonderful environment for kids, I wish more had the opportunity to go here."

    "If you read the reviews at Great Schools, I highly recommend you come and visit our school. As both as teacher and parent at this school, I have experienced nothing less than the highest administrative support. The school has never been better in terms of community, parental support and supportive staff. It is a shame that this online format of writing reviews encourages cyber bullying. It appears that the same sour gripers keep rehashing their grudges and can't move on."

    "While it s good to see others claim to have had a good experience with this school, unfortunately this was not the case for us. A great experience is what we wanted (and thought we were paying for), but never received. And the reason is simple: the administrative staff proved time and again to be unsupportive of teachers, parents, and worst of all unsupportive of children. Our happy ending is that we found a school that has been a total breath of fresh air. The sense of community that is fostered and positive involvement by everyone from the head of school to the part time staffers has invoked a sense of belonging that I can't believe we missed for an entire year at Beddow and sadly we'll never get that year back. But the future is looking amazing for us as the whole family is excited about school again. If you can overlook the myriad of factors beyond good teachers that define what a great school experience should be then perhaps it s not such a bad place. For us, finding a school where the entire staff (not just teachers) takes stock in the lives of the children and the parents has been a real eye opener. At the very least, get to know the administration all the way to the top."

    "We could not be happier with the Beddow School. Our child has been attending for 3 years and is doing extremely well, socially and academically. Administration and teachers are encouraging us to observe the class as often as possible so that we stay informed. We are also attending and/or volunteering at their school functions."
