Pasadena Waldorf School Reviews

We are thrilled with this school! Our daughter is thriving due to the unique approach to education where she gets to move her body and use her hands and her imagination, the faculty attention to each individual student, the vast opportunities in sciences, arts, languages, music, games, and sports, and the strong school community. She loves going to school and doesn't want to miss a day!

The sciences are actually quite strong, because the education develops the kind of thinking and reasoning skills, and the imagination students need to be good scientists. The high school students receive personal attention, and are taught by accomplished scientists, not only science educators. The graduates are thriving in colleges around the world. As a medical doctor, with many years of science education, I wish I had received this type of foundation provided by Pasadena Waldorf School.

Waldorf schools create a love for life in students, I've been at Pasadena Waldorf School since the third grade and I can say for sure that it has hugely impacted who I am. The education is very holistic and in high school, it's very liberal-artsy, I wouldn't go for science or math, but english, art, and other humanities are great. Its a very small school which is awesome for me, class sizes are small and make for meaningful and close relationships with the teachers, who are really talented and passionate. Another really good thing about the school is the community, I know everyone and their mother, and they all know me.The campus is also very homey, since it was at one point, a home. Both the high school and Lower school campuses are in houses. The high school campus is small and really cozy, and we have an organic garden right out front, where we hang out and help farm vegetables and things.
As an alumni parent of three and a member of this vibrant community for over 20 years, I have experienced tremendous growth and vitality at PWS. Dedicated faculty, staff and parents create an extraordinary environment for the lucky students here. My children all received a solid and deeply profound education and, yes! they went to excellent colleges and were well prepared. They have entered the world with compassion and wisdom. This is exactly what I wanted for them.
