Summerfield Waldorf School & Farm Reviews

Summerfield is truly an educational experience like no other. The balanced and engaging curriculum is grounded in science and math, dives deep into the humanities and rounds the student's development with an emphasis on the arts. The teachers are demanding but meet the students as individuals, and an unparalleled relationship of trust is formed. A Summerfield education enables students to be competitive and succeed in all academic settings, but more importantly it teaches students how to learn and turn any situation that life may offer into success.

Having been a waldorf student my whole life it's hard to compare Summerfield with public schools. I have friends who go to public schools and in comparison I usually get more thinking problem solving work and they frequently get math sheets with fifty problems. I like to work at a slower thoughtful pace and Summerfield allows me to do so. In addition the school is small, I know all the staff, and have good connections with all staff members. The downside is that I find standardized testing more difficult because of the way I learn and work. That being said I'm much better at problem solving than most of those friends who got better SAT scores than I. Some of the specific ratings such as academics I will be putting N/A only because I do not have enough experience with other schools to compare properly.
I really enjoy Summerfield as a school! It’s a close knit community and you have 1-1 with the teachers and the learning is very nice for everyone because no matter what level you are at the teachers go to your level and explain it in a way you will understand
