All experts and all Waldorf teacher certified. This is a teacher run school. The faculty supports one another and dedicates a lot of time to continuing education and always evaluating and improving themselves.
Development of the Will is a high priority at PWS. Pre schoolers and Kindergarteners are encouraged to walk up the hill to their classroom with out being carried by mom or dad and they carry their own lunch too. School yard activities include digging and building and seeing each job through. As kids get older they become responsible for carrying and looking after their music instruments and they are given ever challenging projects as they move through the grades.
PWS is a great community! My kids are happy and thriving. They love to go to school, they want to get there early and I can hardly get them to leave before the last minute of aftercare. My first grader loves math, has learned to knit and play the pentatonic flute. She takes Spanish and Japanese classes every week. The wishing Well School Store and Squirrels Nest Cafe are amazing too!
Our teachers are amazing and wow me daily. How they can get the children to pay attention even in exciting moments without yelling is something that I try to work on as a parent! The teachers work more on getting the children engaged on many levels than on straight up memorization. If you want that type of teaching just forget private school tuition and go public.
