Lake Champlain Waldorf School Reviews

My kids love going to school so much! I love the support for parents, beautiful classrooms, and kind teachers. The mixed age kindergarten lets kids play and be kids while also laying the foundation for language skills and meaningful work through song, story and artistic activities. The grade school allowed my children to be creative thinkers and the high school engages my child in an authentic way, by challenging him and imparting knowledge. In addition the curriculum relies on being outdoors in nature each day across all the grades preK-12.

I've been a parent at LCWS from kindergarten through high school graduation and I am blown away by the thoughtfulness of the curriculum and the dedication and personalization that the teachers provide. This education is one step ahead of the research coming out about human development and meaningful learning. High school students are exposed to rigorous curriculum that prepares them for the level of critical thinking and writing that is expected in competitive colleges. The tuition cost is an excellent investment in developing intelligent, compassionate and well rounded students who are ready for the challenges of the world today.
