Coastal Grove is probably one of the best schools in the nation. The school is heavily focused on the well being and nurturance of the child as well as academic rigor through Waldorf Methodology The students are learning to use their full brain potential through the gentle and academically balanced programs. The handwork, music, movement, PE, and Spanish classes are a huge bonus. Not only do the students get exposure to all these extra-curricular classes several times a week all year- their teachers get a break and are assisted by the extra staff who teach the classes. Bettina is an outstanding, thorough and caring director. After having my children at a very public, outdated school with a horrible principal/superintendent here in Northern Humboldt I am so relieved to know they are being well taken care of by Bettina and her outstanding staff. Ms. Katie Smith-Caggiano is absolutely amazing. She is so kind, stern and academically thorough. Thank you to this incredible school. Everyone in the world would be so lucky to grow up with an education like this.
We love our school! It's a public charter school integrating Waldorf methods...very special in every way!
We have a wonderful program that includes specialties like handwork, Spanish and violin. Our children do lots of beautiful artwork while learning the essentials. We also have a wonderful (nearly) organic snack and lunch program, all cooked fresh each day on site.
I feel so lucky that my child is able to attend this wonderful school. The whole staff is amazing and the families are wonderful and very involved in the lives of their children.
This school is amazing! There teaching techniques are genius! One incredible teachers is Ms. Jen, she is probably the best teacher i ahve ever met! This school is great for young children!
