Because everyday my daughter eagerly asks, "Is today a school day?" and when the answer is no, she is disappointed. She comes home excited to teach me a new song or tell me all about digging potatoes or show me a new bug she captured in the garden. I wish I went to a school like this when I was a kid, so much wonder and excitement ahead of her.

Prairie Moon is such a fun school, I love to go help in the garden or sit in on knitting or Spanish class.

Prairie Moon is the only Waldorf school in Kansas. Through a rich curriculum Prairie Moon Waldorf School fosters the development of self-knowledge and helps children to engage fully in the world by awakening in them warmth of heart, clarity of thought, and strength of purpose. Waldorf education strives to cultivate students who grow into creative, motivated, self-confident adults who are able to find purpose and direction in their lives.

Prairie Moon is the perfect place for families who are looking for an education that will address 'the whole child' and not just focus on achieving high test scores. I love that the curriculum centers on a connection with nature, and we really feel part of a community at Prairie Moon.

My son has attended this school for two years now and we couldn't be happier. His creative spirit and joy of life are respected and encouraged. I love the curriculum and I love the people.

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.
