Wonderful Waldorf inspired education. Teaches the whole child, mind, body, spirit. I feel all schools should follow Waldorf teachings in some compacity.

My son developed special needs while attending school. As a result, a male teacher untrained in physical restraint did restrain my child from running out of a room by throwing him to the floor, putting a knee on his chest and when I walked in to WITNESS THIS, he was yelling in my son's face. I have pictures of the bruises. Recordings of the night terrors where my son cried that he couldn't move. I took him to a chiropractor without saying what happened and the chiro asked if my son had been in a car accident because he was suffering from whiplash. Birch Tree resolved this by expelling my child. Do not trust them to keep your children safe.
