Summerfield Waldorf School Reviews by Parents and Teachers



Because the school refuses to address the request for accommodations spelled out by an IEP for my son's dyslexia, yes I would concur:  the school is not for everyone.

The total lack of a comprehensive science program hurts this school. There is no coordinated physical science program. —Submitted by a teacher

  1. Do your research before committing to the grades. Ask questions. How many kids left the class mid year or year end. Don't be surprised if the number is 8-10. Ask how many children have joined the class because of behavioral issues at other schools. And if you go forward, test outside along the way. In our case we were years behind what we were promised.
    The early education is wonderful. If you have red flags about the grades pay attention. Talk to families who have left. Do your homework.

You may ask, "where are all the 5=Star reviews?" Well, the problem with those reviews is that many tend not to be too honest. I have included 4-star reviews that appear honest. Often, gushing reviews are placed by teachers and administrators - as some comments here indicate. "This school educates the whole child!!!" - 5 stars - by Anonymous... I say baloney! Notice, many of the reviewers have been misled by Waldorf and are still buying the PR, even after having been disappointed. Feel free to comment but understand the intent of this blog.
