Austin Waldorf School Reviews
I've had an amazing experience at AWS. I went there from kindergarten through eighth grade, then my family moved away, but in junior year I came back and will never regret doing so. The community is very strong, And the athletics, academics, and art are all equally important. AWS values family, religion, and diversity of all kinds. All my teachers are very supportive and understanding. As long as you can talk to your teachers, they will understand what might be going on in your life and make it more challenging for you or easier for you. You generally have a big class in grade school but it slims down throughout high school, but you keep the same strong base of students who have been there since kindergarten. The curriculum is based n the development of the child, so you will not learn decimals in first grade, your education will be based around stories and fables. So, in the end, you will be more prepared for the future than those who chose a different path and attend public schools.
The grade school is pretty lovely and children see to have a really good experience, though much of this depends on which teacher your child has (they have the same teacher 1st-8th, typically). For the high school, proceed with extreme caution. It is very small and the school does little for social-emotional health (they have a very hands-off approach, even for issues of bullying). And do not try it unless you are certain your child will stay through graduation. They have a very, very strange system of awarding high school credits (many in increments as small as 1/4th and 1/8th credit) and if your child transfers to a public high school in Texas, they will not receive any credit for most of the classes and will pretty much have to re-take all of the coursework from the years they attended the AWS high school.
I have really enjoyed my experience at the Austin Waldorf School. I started there in kindergarten, and as a senior, this is my fourteenth year attending. The education I have received has been very rich, including math and english, languages and science, however it has been taught in a unique and interesting way. The school and faculty teach not only to the student, but to the whole person. They inspire life lessons inside and outside the classroom, and support the journey that each individual is on. I enjoy the freedom of walking outside to each class, talking with faculty who know me, my triumphs and challenges, and having the opportunity to express myself and grow in a safe and supported environment.
