Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School


Posted April 12, 2013

the school is very good for Nursery/Kindergarten, but after that is becomes " institutionalized" by forcing the ids to line up in rows of tables/chairs This begins in 1st grade, which becomes a culture shock to kids after the free-flowing natural learning environment of Kindergarten. Also, there is no limit to amount of kids placed in each class-some classes have 25 kids and ONE teacher! They NEVER add a second teacher, just trying to maximize profits over quality of education it appears. We transferred schools after Kindergarten. Also science isnt even taught until 6th grade, and then it is poorly taught. No wonder USA is so far behingd the rest of the world in science!

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.
