Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School Reviews

The lower and middle school were definitely good when I was there. Certain aspects of the high school are absolutely wonderful and others are not so good. Some of the teachers are stellar but you also find the few don't seem to be equipped to teach at a Waldorf school. The academics that HVS does cover are very good and provide valuable learning experiences. The school is heavily art based and while they do cover the sciences, they cover them in a completely different way from any other school I know. While this too is valuable it can make the transition from high school to a science based college major more difficult.

Great school! Amazing teachers, beautiful campus. Our boys are thrilled and so are we. We feel so lucky that our children get to learn at such a great place, not to mention also learn on a farm!
What a magical place. You drop your kids off and when you leave, you know they will be safe and will enjoy their day. The teachers truly care about the children as if they are their own.
