I am incredibly impressed with the staff and parent community at MWS. The curriculum is so thoughtfully delivered to the children - each lesson addresses my child at her developmental level and celebrates her as a unique individual. The students get loads of recess on 8 acres of beautiful land with groves of trees and gorgeous views and there is NO HIGH STAKES TESTING! The children enjoy the school day, creating, playing, sharing and learning. My daughter is standing strong at 9 years old - healthy, happy and full of the knowledge of who she is. Take a tour - it's an amazing place.
From the first time my daughter saw the school, met her teacher, and began interacting with her (future) classmates, we knew this was the right school for her. It shares our values and is a true community!
This school has helped our daughter become an incredibly gifted and capable young woman. She is able to comprehend ideas and thoughts way further than most 16 year olds. MN Waldorf gave her the skills she needed to become a whole citizen in these fast paced times. The lack of "technology" in the classroom really helps facilitate it in the later years. These children are great people when they leave the school and ready for anything the world brings them. The teaching staff is second to none.
My kids LOVE to go to school and they receive tons of compliments on being well rounded. The Minnesota Waldorf School has an amazing core curriculum of math, science, language arts, and humanities, as well as music, art, recess, foreign language, gym, recess. In addition to all this the material is presented at just the right time and in just the right way so that the process is fun and meaningful to the children. I wish I had gone to the Minnesota Waldorf school. The only thing I wish is that more people knew about it .
