This school ALLOWS AND ENCOURAGES BULLING. There are gangs of bullies. The teacher was aware and witnessed physical bulling and peer pressure bulling, but refused to put a stop to it. My child told the teacher several times about how the kids would gang up on him, refuse to play with him, call him names and put him down. I spoke to the teacher and she said,"That's what kids do. This is not the end of it." I told her that if there is no consequences for the bulling it sure won't stop. Since the teacher refused to do anything about the bulling, I spoke to the director of the school, who was aware of the bullies. She gave me 6 minutes of her times before rudely saying that she had to go because someone walked in her office and then quickly hung up. The director agreed with the teacher and the parents of the bullies were never notified and the bullies (mainly one) were never sent to her office. They IGNORED THE BULLING AND SAID IT WILL CONTINUE!
Mountain Oak inspires a deep love of learning. Our children learn how to learn not just how to spit back memorized facts. There are many mainstream teachers who send their children to this school. Small class sizes and an emphasis on a holistic learning style. Waldorf is the way to go.
If your child need's love and a warm environment to learn. Then Mountain Oak is the right school for your child. This school is hands on, with the arts at it's core. My son's favorite part of the elementary school experience is, that he stay's with the same teacher from k-8th grades. For my son's 6th grade geology block they went on four day field study to Sunset Crater, Grand Canyon and Grand Canyon Caverns. The teachers, principal and staff are the most dedicated group of educators on the planet! Thank You. Former Home School-er
My daughter went to this school for six years, and loved it! This is by far the best school I have ever seen. Mountain Oak students take safe walks in the morning and often plant gardens...they are very eco. friendly. Please donate to this school. It would mean a lot to our friendly little society!
My duaghter just started kindergarden and I am very happy with the school.Mountain Oak is an excellent school.
My daughter has been attending MOCS for 5 years, and I am so impressed. She started out as a shy, introverted child, and with the help of the teachers there she has blossomed. I love the fact that the school is art/music based. The teachers have all been so wonderful. I have and would continue to highly recommend this school.
This is a great school who's students love to be there. They include music and art and movement into the curriculum and the children learn and remember so much better with this style learning. The parents are invited and encouraged to take an active part in the school which fosters a feeling of community involvement in our youngsters. The teachers truly care for the children in their classes and the children form a close bond with the teacher who goes up in grades with thier class. I see students who are insightful and intelligent, respected as individuals and respectful of others. I see great possibilities for these students.
We feel so lucky to have found this Waldorf Charter school for our kids. Our kids love it, its free. I only wish we had know about this gem before we purchased a home. The teachers are totally dedicated to bringing a love of learning to our children.
A Waldorf school for free, I wish that I had known about this 7 years ago, my old private Waldorf school started at $2000 and within 5 years was at $7500 and rising every year. To be able to have a free Waldorf school in a place as nice as Prescott Arizona, what a blessing. Mountain Oak is currently a K - 8, hopefully soon we can be a pre-k - 12, and then all of the families out there struggling to afford a private Waldorf school can all move here to Prescott to enjoy the wonderful Prescott climate and an awesome Waldorf education with a growing, caring community that values their children and their one childhood that they have to live. Our children have a whole life of being an adult, let's give them the very best childhood we can, then they can grow into wonderful, creative, caring adults.
An impressive Waldorf curriculum comparable to that offered at private Waldorf schools costing $8,000 - $10,000 per year per pupil. A rich and well rounded mix of history, geography, mathematics, and language arts integrated with the arts gives students a broad and full perspective of their place in western civilization not easily obtained elsewhere. Most teachers are Waldorf certified or in the process of certification. Violin, Bass, cello, singing, handwork, woodworking, performing arts, and Spanish starting in first grade. Tuition: $0.00 It is a public school. A great value in education anywhere.
