Waldorf School of Atlanta Reviews by Parents

Posted on Apr 30, 2012
The education of your child depends too much on the teacher the school has for that grade, since the teacher stays with the students for a number of years. Also I do not recommend starting the school in a later grade since it is difficult for the student as well as the parents to feel welcome. The teacher has all ready made "friends" with the parents and may not listen to the new parent concerns. The music, spanish, and games teacher are excellent. --Submitted by a parent

Teaching quality, and student experience, varies greatly. A few very good teachers, but quality is inconsistent. Consensus governance model makes decision-making difficult sometimes, particularly in addressing faculty issues. Leadership voids and transitions have been persistent for years. As a result, school continues to stagnate in same semi-depressing rented church space.  --Submitted by a parent

The educational success of your child depends heavily on what teacher they get, as teachers here stay with their class for many years potentially. The school has also struggled with consistent leadership the last few years.  --Submitted by a parent

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.
