Woodland Star Charter Waldorf School Reviews by Parents

Posted November 3, 2009
I do not consider this school to be an 'academic' based institution. Although
the learning experience is varied, the curriculum is dated, slightly skewed, and
not practical, nor realistic for the times in which we live. The school
environment tends to foster emotional/mental underdevelopment in it's students,
as well as a fear of media based content in a general sense (TV, non-Waldorf
approved reading materials, internet and computer based technology, so on). If I
were to recommend this school at all, I would hesitantly recommend this school
to any parent within the district who has a special needs child, or a child with
autism-spectrum disorders. I base that recommendation solely on the fact that
this school progresses at a much slower, less demanding pace than other
'typical' schools.

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.
