My daughter attended PH from K - 8 grade. She is now in a challenging public high school and doing great, receiving highest honors consistently and taking on school leadership roles. Her teachers are impressed with her and other PH graduates -- they've told me these students are always a pleasure to have in class. My daughter often fondly reminisces about her time at PH and connects what she is learning now to something she learned at PH.

We moved to the Wilton area from St. Louis in 1997 in part so that our children could attend Pine Hill Waldorf School. We have not been disappointed. They've flourished here, as kids typically do in Waldorf schools, but Pine Hill's size and campus make it one of the flagship schools in Waldorf or Steiner education.

Pine Hill is a great school for our children and our family. Our children have flourished in the pedagogy, bringing out their creativity in music, movement, storytelling, acting, and circus arts, as well as making them competitive in the more academic pursuits of math, science, reading, and writing. The community within the school is also very supportive for our family. Our five years here have been great!

My child attended this school for 9 years and I feel that she received a really wonderful education. She is now in an extremely demanding high school, but she is having no trouble keeping up since Pine Hill prepared her well.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
