Chicago Waldorf School Reviews

Chicago Waldorf High School has been the best choice I could have ever made. They Do not “teach to the test”. The students are met with age appropriate challenges that allow them to develop their own critical thinking skills. The friends I have made will be with me for life. I went on exchange to Colombia for 3 months and hosted the student I lived with here for 3 months. There is a constant stream of exchange students from all over the world coming in for a semester that you get to know. When you have experienced being an exchange student yourself, you know what it’s like to be that kid coming in with all of your insecurities about speaking another language and being so far away from your home and your family, so you are likely to lend a hand, be friendly and get to know the exchange students. The small class size allows for service learning experiences that you would not get anywhere else. My college application process went smoothly and I got accepted to my first choice!

While it is true that we stumbled upon Chicago Waldorf School by accident, it is also true that we cannot be more thankful for such a lucky, happy, life-enriching accident. Now nine years into the education, our two sons are flourishing. The caring and impressive faculty really know our sons and how to inspire them. Each specialty subject teacher adds to this knowledge and keeps that spark of curiosity alive, fueling a love of learning.

And now, our sons are getting a chance to participate in athletics (soccer, basketball, and volleyball) as well as getting deeper into math with math club and music, through private lessons after school. Such a well-rounded experience!

Looking forward to seeing how far, how deep, how high these kids will go with this very special education at this incredibly unique school!
I went to this school fro 13 years and loved it! I made some of my closest friends here and I loved my classmates. The teachers are available to help if you need it and the homework is both thought provoking and manageable. I had a great experience playing on the volleyball team as well!
