Waldorf education can be wonderful! As with every type of education, there are amazing Waldorf schools and there are terrible schools. Our experience with this school was awful. The programs are not what you would expect for the price of tuition.April 17, 2011
Our experience at this school was a nightmare even though we believe that Waldorf education can be wonderful for so many children. We found the teachers to be awful in the early childhood and in the grades. Finding good Waldorf teachers is very difficult for this school. The programs that they offer are minimal compared to others in the area and their tuition is high.
This school is certainly not right for everybody. It's like a hippie-commune combined with an amish school..It's one big family,sharing,sharing..There is no confidentiality..My son was there for 6 weeks..The best advice i can give to anybody considering this school is read about it first!! from the outside it seems like a dream school..It's not! thank you

Our experience at Water's Edge was a nightmare. The teachers and staff that we dealt with were awful. We were constantly (almost daily) asked to donate more money to the school. The programs that they offer are inconsistent from year to year and are weak compared the other Waldorf schools in the Midwest.
