Pasadena Waldorf School Recovery Group


I have removed the previous content of this page.  I'm not afraid of Pasadena Waldorf School and they can expect to get a LOT more scrutiny from me from now on.  I've got a few stories of my own to tell about that school and some of the people there.  Let those miscreants try to bully me... if they dare to. 

Meanwhile, as long as we have a spot here... let's see some recent reviews of Pasadena Waldorf School:

We feel robbed of time and money by Pasadena Waldorf School. The volunteer demands are punishing and they seem like a distraction. The request for money is constant yet their financial transparency is non-existent. The parents are treated with no respect. There is so much mind control, time control and manipulation used at that school. The most frightening thing of all is that PWS has NO WRITTEN POLICY ON BULLYING. Beware!

Here's what I wish I had known before I enrolled my children at PWS: as soon as you start feeling nervous or scared to speak out about a concern, as soon as a teacher starts to "wonder" about your child, as soon as you begin to feel slightly uncomfortable -- it's time to get out. It's hard to believe this is an actual school that purports to take care of children. It is an ideology taking care of itself. Be careful.

I was highly disappointed with this school. I was seduced by the beautiful grounds healthy vegan 
snacks and gorgeous gift shop. But beyond the exterior I experienced an extraordinary rigidity. My 
daughter was told not to do yoga (unhealthy - do Steiner exercises instead) not to do family bed 
(encourages too much dependence - she was a toddler ) and to play with silk scarves instead of 
write letters or read (frowned upon before the age of 7). I also felt the practice of having only one 
class teacher for all the grades was fundamentally limiting. Most importantly I felt our teacher didn't 
have the skills to cope with either conflict resolution or bullying (which happened). I ended up taking 
my daughter out of the school.

Great morals you are showing your Altadena neighbors.  Breaking promises made by a founder of Altadena that allowed a Japanese family who we're put in camps to live there and now having them removed.

THAT'S JUST WHAT I WANT MY KIDS TO LEARN,BREAK PROMISES AND SCREW OVER PEOPLE FOR MONEY,not.

Way to go once respected neighborhood school.

    2. Well, obviously, they were looking for reviews HERE - and found the Yelp reviews I posted. THIS is the place to be looking for information on Waldorf schools since Waldorf school websites cannot be trusted. Better to read the reviews of parents who have experienced Waldorf firsthand instead of the fake 5-star reviews of administrators.

  3. Whoever wrote, "Get a life!" sounds rather choleric, and loves competition... but hate to lose.

    1. How can they not take it seriously? It isn't as if I'm writing all these complaints... they come from other people. Among them are many complaints about Waldorf administrators and teachers posting glowing reviews of their own schools... even cutting and pasting glowing reviews other administrators have posted. I can't imagine why you would think negative reviews are suspect but not positive ones. Parents want to know the problems when they research schools... not the Bliss-ninny stuff. Save that for your websites! ;)

  6. It doesn't matter, this douche is writing to himself. He finds all his information to be very helpful!

    1. Yes... I was writing to myself... except that YOU saw what I wrote. Who knows... maybe someone else might. As to whether or not it is helpful, you would, I'm sure, be surprised at how many letters of thanks I receive from parents who realize they have dodged a bullet by avoiding Waldorf. Clearly, I do this for them, not the people who go to pains to try to discredit anyone critical of their beloved little cult.

  7. PWS seems to be a fragile, touchy clan. "No fair to be exposing us!"

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.
