"For Waldorf teachers, math is often one of the more difficult subjects to teach. On the one hand, memories of our own school days can cloud our view of the developmental needs of the child; while on the other hand, Steiner's many indications do not form a cohesive structure for the math curriculum. Thus, many different ways of teaching were developed during Waldorf pedagogy's seventy-year history. This diversity underscores the responsibility each teacher carries for his/her lessons. This guide does not intend in any way to diminish this responsibility, but seeks to contribute to a unified view of Steiner indications for a developmentally appropriate math curriculum. Our approach may differ from existing ones, mainly in directly and quickly beginning math activities and avoiding pictures when introducing the numbers. Other differences may exist as well." -Ernst Schuberth is a mathematician, Waldorf high school teacher, and Waldorf teacher educator.

We have truly enjoyed watching our children grow as confident and courageous citizens of the school and their community. We have watched them blossom in way we never imagined. The teachers have such a love for their students and for the students'n families that it makes learning a real joy. We are so thankful to be a part of the Winterberry community and look forward to all of our children having a wonderful Winterberry experience.

Our experience was that asking the wrong questions gets you taken off the "list". Basically we asked questions about how Rudolph Steiner and Anthroposophy inspire this public school. What we experienced was that all parents do NOT receive equal treatment or equal communication from the school at the discretion of the leadership. It has been an experience of not being treated with dignity.

Great school. Art based curriculum with plenty of real life practical experience to go along with school work. Very hands on learning and the kids stay with the teachers year after year. We cannot say enough positive things for the teachers and principal who have helped our son with a learning disability grow and mature.
