If you are a parent caught between home/un-schooling and full time school dilemma, Waterhouse is an amazing place to be. Classrooms are small (15 students max to two teachers/mentors and a parent volunteer), school is 3-4 days a week (depending on your grade), and as a parent you have the option to participate in your child's education. The staff truly care about each child, and help each child find things that resonate with them as individuals. They completely understand the importance of the home-school connection-and as such, are not sticklers for schedules. Learning is a combination of foundational subjects (like math and language arts) mixed with explorations in these subjects as well as science, history and art. Art is infused throughout the program-from learning to write by studying works of art, to reading classic books and analyzing them. All of this centered around a core of genuine caring for each student that is socially and emotionally supportive. Can you tell I love this school?!
