Parents Speak

In math my children were way above average, beyond where the other sixth graders were. Both of their teachers say that they have great deductive reasoning skills, they are a pleasure to have in class, they think outside the box. My son’s teacher at Boynton Middle School said if she had to do it over again, she would have sent her own kids to Waldorf.

Waldorf education transmits truths. It seems that it provides children with tools that they need in life, and tools are more important than facts. It allows children to interpret what’s happening in their world (and the world is changing so fast).

Ramon Bosch
Visiting Professor of Architecture, Cornell University and Architect at Bosch-Capdeferro Arquitectures, parent of a kindergarten student and a fourth grader.

There is a feeling of humanity among the children. My child is a full person for being here. He makes friends easily and is comfortable in his own skin. He is excited about his peers' achievements, and they are excited about his. It’s a noncompetitive environment and celebrates all qualities.
