OK, this review is long over due, however, Yelp wasn't invented when I was in high school here.
I'm going to try to sum this up and be brief.
The philosophy does not fit in with what most of the world is expecting out of these kids.
We didn't have text books, (we had to make our own), we were not allowed to use computers...
Hypocritical, as the administration could use computers.
I found myself my 2nd year of high school dancing to spoken word poetry, writing by hand every single paper for years as the teacher dictated lengthy lectures. I learned nothing regarding a trade a vocation, or college prep.
All your teachers are the same, year after year. Possibly a great bond with your educator. However, If you're on not so great terms or have a personality clash you're potentially screwed from 1-8th grade. and 9-12th.
It didn't prepare me for college, it hindered me. I left before graduation.
The "Non-Waldorfians" as we transfers were called (who didn't grow up in the system since birth) ALL dropped out and transferred, most even before certain semesters were up.
It says something about the establishment that if "outsiders" all leave that something is probably wrong.
Just please don't put a child here who wants to be a graphic designer or really thrive in this competitive technology based society that most of us live in.
