    Linden waldorf school is a wonderful school. I am a current 8th grader. i have been going to this school since 5th grade. LWS has truly loving and caring teachers who take time to make sure that each student truly understands the material. My teacher is wonderful teacher. she is the best teacher I've ever had. I love this school so much.

    This school should be avoided if you are truly looking for a loving inclusive globally conscious school. The culture is stated as being child centered globally inclusive heart focused spirit oriented. But it is not the actual culture. Rather it is excluive rigid authoritarian occult isolating. While my children attended I witnessed a new student a kind sweet child with a family that seemed very loving was ostracized bullied treated in a most hateful manner because they were unique. That was the final straw for my family. We were never told of the culture of openness meant only open to what they think and nothing else. They say advertise pretend to be holistic creative loving but rather they are anything but unless you meet their exact specifications. And those occult Wiccan expectations are and were never discussed. If that is your thing then peace love and hopefully your children will be happy. But if not your children will be abused and made to feel very unwelcome.

    Simple - My 8 year old have been at the school for 5 plus years. Along with her great reading math and social skills she looks forward to seeing her teacher and friends every day. She is highly motivated and loves nature and learning in a trusting and nurturing environment. She has just published - yes I said published her 1st book and we are looking for many great things to come of her. The Linden Waldorf School has also place all if its graduating classes in top notch schools around the city and region and they have been performing at the top of their respective classes. Great place to visit. Check out Visitor Wednesdays and or attend our annual Elve's Faire November 6 2010.

    The school and its approach to learning (waldorf education) is an excellent environment for children to learn develop a strong foundation and self confidence. Along with multiple languages string instruments and art. My kids love school.

    Our small school is a real community. The Waldorf curriculum brings new challenges at just the right times in the right ways. My daughter was deeply immersed in stories before she ever began to read and she incorporated an understanding of numbers through rhyme and rhythm before she ever wrote out a math problem. She spends time outdoors each day (rain or shine) has learned recorder and a string instrument and she knows how to use her hands whether knitting and crocheting woodworking watercolor painting or writing beautiful cursive.

    Linden Waldorf is an exceptional place where children are challanged not just academically but personnally as well. There is an open and accepting atmosphere and a fostering of creativity. Students are encouraged to be accountable for their actions and empowered to make changes in the world.

    Linden is the best place to let your children be children and they learn a great deal along the way!!

    Linden is a beacon of light in today's waters. This holistic approach to education is based on the teachings of Rudolph Steiner. Children are educated through oral teachings art and music. Handwork and play are a part of each day - from preschoolers to the 8th grade. Character building is taught through the pedagogical use of myths legends fairy tales and more. I cannot imagine my children growing up in with any other form of education.

    Linden Waldorf School nurtures the child holistically in all aspects of his/her development. A magical environment that cherishes childhood and releases compassionate and thinking young adults.

    It is difficult to explain how great this school is. We have four children going to Linden Waldorf and all four children are not only learning a great deal more than their previous school but they love it. They no longer associate school with stressful repetitive work and have regained their love of learning.
