I love how my children want to go to school each day and are learning to love learning!

As a parent and former public school teacher, I can honestly say that I am so fortunate to have my children at this school! Never before have I experienced such a sense of community with amazingly dedicated staff who take time to get to truly know your child. My kids have developed a real love of learning and sense of wonder about the world around them. This school cares about educating the whole child rather than just producing students who will only focus if its going to be on a test.

Sandpoint Waldorf School is truly a wonderful experience for children and parents alike. Using common sense and sound teaching practices to sculpt well rounded, intelligent and emotionally stable children. This is an experience that every child should have an opportunity to have.

This is a gem of a school, with a highly motivated and involved parent body, and an extraordinarily committed, compassionate, and accessible faculty, We have three children in the school, and with each child, we have been grateful the very real sense of partnership with each teacher: they have been extraodinarily attentive to the developmental as well as the academic needs of our kids. For example, after our daughter had nightmares following a housefire she had heard about, her teacher customized the painting class instructions, allowing her to work out with paint what she needed to, and the nightmares where gone immediately. Strong arts components woven into all subjects has both our 7 and 14 years olds really engaged in their work - they actually love school! Parents go the extra mile to connect with other children, so children have the sense of being part of a true community.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
