Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
Students are encouraged to speak with their teachers when they are challenged socially, emotionally, or academically. Any challenging situations my son has faced have been resolved by the open lines of communication between teachers and students but also by the students themselves. Each class travels together through the years and they develop their own group harmony and understanding of each other. Most of the time they seem to work it out themselves.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
Waldorf education makes every effort to meet the student where they are at by focusing on the process of learning. With less end product judgement and grading students feel more comfortable to engage in the process and learn who they are as students.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Dierdre McEachern the director is incredible. She is extremely positive, energetic, smart and hard working. Her energy and dedication flows through the school at all levels. When you meet her you will feel very confident that school is in great hands. She has raised over a million dollars in a recent capital campaign to help the school continue to achieve its goals.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
When my son had a challenging social situation his teacher met with the students involved and conducted a careful conversation to re establish harmony. He has maintained great lines of communication with the students. The words integrity, compassion and respect are foundational in Waldorf Education and we have found that at Seacoast Waldorf School.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers at a Waldorf School mostly administer themselves and it shows at this school. They seem very dedicated and enthusiastic to be teaching. Our 6th grade teacher Mr. Drennan has been excellent, committed and dedicated to his class.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
There is some homework in the 6th grade for my son but its not excessive and dovetails perfectly with whatever block of main lesson study he is doing at school.



- a
We decided it was essential for our 6th grade son to have an education where he could be active during the day, spend time in the woods, work with this hands and his mind and learn in more of a project based environment. Hours of desk time, homework, testing, and text book learning were not serving him in the public school system. Seacoast Waldorf School has been a perfect fit for us. Since being at Seacoast Waldorf School a shift has taken place where our son comes home and is genuinely interested in learning, he is asking more questions and maintains the creative energy he generated at school. He is becoming more of an active part in the process of his education versus someone who just grinds through school work to get a grade or get it done. We are very lucky to have found Waldorf Education in the Seacoast area.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework is gradually introduced as the children move through the grades program. There is no homework for the early grades.




- a
My family has been at the Seacoast Waldorf School for 7 years now. I can now see the gift of Waldorf education in my children. They have a love of learning. This is a special place.



- a
What a fantastic school! The new building is beautiful, the teachers are wonderful, and the parent community is open and welcoming. This really is a jewel on the Seacoast! Our children and are so happy, they come home singing and full of joy.
