    The Waldorf School has given back our grandson's childhood. He entered Waldorf in the middle of Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade. His old school gave him an hour of mindless homework most nights. His new school's curriculum is appropriate to his developmental abilities. Rather than trying to jam information into a young brain, Waldorf opens children's minds through experiences that makes them want to learn. Rather than being fixated narrowly on reading and math the curriculum includes gardening, physical movement, and playing outdoors rain or shine. Rather than always keeping children quiet and still at their desks, Waldorf lets children move around. The school's atmosphere is nurturing, safe, and devoted to learning. Our grandson loves learning French and German, and says his teachers are always kind. In the single year he has been at Waldorf he has grown intellectually, socially and emotionally. We couldn't be happier.

    Attending the Waldorf School of Garden City has changed my life completely. The school is an accepting and diverse environment, with students who love to learn, and teachers who support their students. Art, sports, and an appreciation for nature are all integrated into the curriculum as much as academics are. The campus itself is beautiful, with a greenhouse, a nature trail, two vegetable gardens, two soccer fields and a court yard with a pond. The school building, although smaller than the average school, is kept clean and is an overall comfortable space with a relaxing aura. The teachers all care for the students, as much as the students care about each other. Because the Waldorf School has a small population, there is a special bond formed between the school’s community. The Waldorf School of Garden City is an incredible school that gives students a place to think freely with the support of their teachers and peers.
    Teachers and the school environment are both friendly. They make you be very prepared for colleges. Students are diversified and come from many different countries. The only thing that is not as good is the cafeteria, only acceptable and taste really not good, but they offer organic foods...
