Maine Coast Waldorf School Reviews

We could not have made it through distance learning without Maine Coast Waldorf School. Connection in community is now more important than ever, and our choice several years ago to enroll at MCWS was validated again and again this spring. The teachers and staff went above and beyond during this first foray into distance learning, quickly and nimbly providing engaging and meaningful curriculum. When my son nor I thought we could get through another day of quarantine, we felt connected. Who knows what this Fall will actually bring, but we know the school experience will continue to learning in relationship. Grateful!

We are so impressed with the quality of the education that our two children have been receiving at MCWS. As a former special education teacher myself, I am in awe of the dedication and commitment of the teachers to meet each student where they are at. The curriculum is so rich. In thinking about the fall and the challenges of Covid-19, I am so grateful that there are some 80 acres of outdoor education space. Our beautiful campus and buildings will be able to allow for us to meet the necessary guidelines and protocols that will be required. This brings me great peace. This community - the teachers, staff, administration, and board is strong and feel that I am giving my children the best education I could have hoped for.
Maine Coast Waldorf school is a remarkable institution. I attended for almost my entire K-12 experience excluding a short hiatus for ninth grade at Waynflete. What truly sets Maine Coast apart from its private school counterparts in the region is the quality of its community. Parents, teachers and administrators truly care about the students. And in turn, students care about each other and the school. This community is the foundation upon which Maine Coast pursues its three-pronged pedagogical goals of educating the mind, body, and the spirit. No doubt an unusual approach, but if personal experience is allowed to attest, an effective one. In a world fast becoming more specialized and isolating, Maine Coast is a breath of fresh air to the point of being exhilarating.
