regarding the below comment on teacher rollover, our teacher DID roll over. the following teacher didn't rollover but did stay at the school as from what I understand she preferred to work with the high school. the next teacher is considering retiring rather than take an 8 year commitment. so the below person got caught in a down phase. People leave and go teach elsewhere, it happens. And every school has its issues. I am very involved with the school and enjoy the many opportunities to be with my children and share in the rich environment. It is a wonderful community, and we have the best teacher in the world so my experience is a little skewed, I guess.

Check out the link on this school's website(arizonawaldorf.org) for careers and employment. For a tiny school that markets itself as such a warm environment for growth and learning, they are always hiring first grade (for at least the last 4 years) and grades teachers. With only 1 teacher for each grade, they shouldn't need to do this every school year. Why don't teachers loop back to first grade like they're supposed to? Sometimes when something sounds too good to be true, it just is. This school really got my kids off on the wrong foot and created behavior issues that they didn't have before attending DMS. The high teacher turnover and high student turnover speaks to these issues. Yes, it's pretty on the outside with parents clamoring to try it out, but it's full of broken promises and misleading misinformation on the inside. Don't let the administration convince you that their way is the best and only way. There's a great big world out there beyond the dangerously open gates of this school!

Waldorf education and what it is is readily available on the internet. They are a charter Waldorf school-it's up to the parent to research what Waldorf is, what to expect in a charter vs private school setting, and how it is different than traditional school teaching. In a charter school setting they have to conform to state standards, so it isn't a true Waldorf school but a school that has Waldorf flavoring, so to speak. In a private school setting the anthroposophy roots are more obvious. This school hasn't "hidden" what they are-it's out there already. Parents have to take the time and learn about such a method and how they combine it in a public school setting. Kind of hard to judge a school by only a tour, no attendance, and no research done on a parent's part. We are happy here and have been here since Kinder. Yes admin could use some tweaking...but by and large we are happy here overall because we went in with eyes open and research done.

I went on a school tour because I love the grounds and am looking for an alternative to the public school malaise in Arizona for my child. I enjoyed the tour, the kindergarten looks like tons of fun. The other classrooms are a little dark and dreary. My problem with this school is that I would love to send my child there but upon further research on the Waldorf method I am alarmed that the school wasn't more open about it's spiritual/religious nature. Apparently all of the things that waldorf schools do such as having teachers stay with kids, painting wet on wet, eurythmics all have a basis in this anthroposophy which is not that big of a deal to me except it isn't talked about at all and starts to make me think of the school as a bit cultish. I would prefer that they were up front about all of this stuff rather than hiding it. To me it would be like sending my child to catholic school but the school denying its basis in religion. Maybe they do this because the aren't private and are a charter? Regardless I would appreciate a more up front approach to the philosophy behind the school. Besides that it seems like an ideal early childhood school.

We attended DMS for just over 2 years and found it to be lacking in many areas. My goal for my children is for them to discover what makes them happy and be able to do that. We thought Desert Marigold was the place for this to happen. We were so very wrong. At first we thought the environment was loving and supportive, but my child continued to complain of boredom, teachers not listening, and being picked on daily. It seemed so unlikely at a place like this that I ignored it for too long. By the time I took my issues to administration my child was in emotional distress. At the first sign of conflict the administration decided that adhering to the century-old philosophies created by the founder of Waldorf methodologies was more important than providing an emotionally supportive environment with basic boundaries concerning bullying. The school failed to acknowledge that such things ever happened there. There is a large group of parents continuing to fight this ignorance on campus, but my family has left. My children are now happy and thriving at a public school. My child told me I should tell the other parents how unsafe this school is and there are better places, so I am.

As with any school, there is always room for improvement. We moved to Phoenix because we love AZ. We moved to South mountain, because we loved Desert Marigold school.Our youngest son is in EC preschool. We are familiar with the Waldorf inspired education and do not feel the need to be followers and compete prematurely in testing etc. I feel a lot of parents are overly sensitive to certain issues and need to problem solve themselves and let their children do the same. We have an 18 year old that went through public education and see the problems he now faces due to the "push" to grow up faster and faster. We are pleased with our decision and if you are an "involved" parent then you will be a part of the community that helps "raise the child" .It is not soley the schools job.

After 6 weeks in our neighborhood school we got called off of the wait list at DMS. We are so blessed to be a part of a nurturing community. As with any schools, perfection is not possible. We feel that this school has the students best interest at heart. My child is educated as a whole child. There are arts, eurythmy, Spanish, gardening, handwork, music and plenty of play time. For our family, the thought of traditional schooling that included teaching to the test and encouraging conformity is not what we wanted for our children. I want a self sufficient, caring, confident child that has been taught valuable life skills. A child that can problem solve and find answers without google. An engaged child rather than a child knee deep into a screen of any kind. DMS embraces all of this. Most Waldorf schools are private and can cost as much as $17K per year. We are so lucky to have this type of education for free. Thank you DMS!

Desert Marigold is all we'd hoped for and more... The campus is beautiful, the people, wonderful, and the potential, amazing. Even the things that concerned us initially turned out to be strengths. The kids have one teacher (and one set of classmates) from 1st-8th grade which leads not to insulation but true bonding. They have many different specialty teachers as well and plenty of parent volunteers and staff to set good examples. They learn less from books and more from oral instruction, along with their own note-taking--not strange. This is how we teach in colleges and universities. At Desert Marigold, you can feel like an integral part of a growing community, rather than a cog in a machine. It is a place of true beauty and meaningful learning.

"The only K through 12 Waldorf-inspired Charter school in America." We moved to the Phoenix area in part for this school. Although there are always things that can be improved in any institution, we have not regretted our decision. The teachers are excellent and the majority of practical challenges seem to relate to a sprawling campus, a heavy reliance on state funding, and frankly growing pains. As the school develops donor funding sources it is sure to blossom.

Whole child education. This is not just a school, its a community. Staff is amazing and parent involvement is high. There is a community garden, an animal yard including goats and sheep, and Spammy the beloved pig, a pond complete with geese and ducks, and many more aspects that make it a special place for children and families. Beautiful campus and dedicated faculty. A gem in the middle of the city.

We enjoy the unique mommy & me class! The outdoor setting with the animals, orchard and garden is so beautiful! The indoor setting is cozy and does not have the typical office environment that is in most schools. Both our 3 year old & 1 year old love it! We look forward to pre-K and beyond!

We absolutely love DMS! It was one of the main reasons we moved to Phoenix and we feel so lucky to have our children attend school here.

I absolutely love this school. Most importantly, my daughter who is a first grader loves it the most. Waldorf is what works for my daughter as well as bringing much of it into our home. I am firm believer that a child must have a well rounded and balanced environment that is loving, kind, connected with earth and life. This is the school for that. The teachers are amazing. Many of the families I have met are like-minded and this makes it great for building friendships.

My daughter came from a public school Honor's program and was not happy there. DMS offers a well-rounded education, teaching the child as a whole, not just through tests, passes and failures. She has learned pragmatic academic, musical, athletic, cultural awareness, and social skills that will last a lifetime. She has found balance and demonstrates a level of awareness that public education fails to teach. Staff and families are a welcoming community who are caring toward one another. Waldorf Education in America is usually $12-15,000/year. We are truly blessed to have a free opportunity here in Phx.

When looking for a school I consulted with a friend who told me that not only should the school be a good fit for our child, but should be a good fit for us. After a couple trying a couple local options that didn't work out, we found Desert Marigold. Our family loves the school, administration, teacher, curriculum, campus, and other families at the school. It's a well rounded, balanced education that is more then test scores and stats. This is our second year at the school and we couldn't be happier.

great school! very pleased. I think people who are upset with this school are people who have a hard time with community or have issues to begin with. My child came from Villa Montessori and I am just so much happier here at DMS. My child is very smart and I feel that she is given lessons at her level with excelled track classes. I would like to see a better music program. But my child is still young.

Our family has been a part of the DMS community for 8 years now and we are very happy with the education our children are receiving. Our daughter will be entering 3rd grade in the fall and has the most wonderful teacher who really cares about each and every child and challenges them every day. She also takes the time to listen to the parents if they ever have questions or concerns. Our child's Kindergarten teacher is also fantastic. She creates a nurturing and loving environment. Both of our children's teachers are fully Waldorf certified, as are most of the teachers at DMS. The faculty is very focused on giving the children the best Waldorf curriculum possible. Many of the parents go above and beyond in volunteering to help make this campus beautiful and help to support the events and festivals throughout the year.

This is our third year at Desert Marigold. Our family is very pleased with the Waldorf curriculum and the warm and thoughtful approach to learning. My son leaves the school happy and excited about his daily lessons. He loves to retell stories he has heard and proudly shares his accomplishments. Faculty take their job seriously and are devoted to nurturing and respecting each child. They are friendly and approachable should you have a question or concern. DMS administration is very busy and at the same time they are open to listening to my concerns. They strive to make this community work as they too support the school-wide activities. Parents in the community also deserve credit for stepping up and volunteering, sometimes year after year, to make our community events so successful and memorable. This beautiful, natural campus is a hidden treasure in South Phoenix.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
