I have 3 children at Steiner. They are receiving an outstanding education, balanced, systematic, and most importantly filled with warmth and creativity, The curriculum is different from any other school in Manhattan. The quality of artistic expression that the children are. Able to accomplish here is unparralel. I had my oldest one take ISEE this falll and his results were fantastic. If you care for your child to have a healthy balanced life and a joyfull outlook on life, look no further.

The comment about college acceptance is completely unsubstantiated. The list of schools includes the Ivy's. Call the school for details.

We enjoyed our years at this school, but not without reservations. Because there is no principal, the administrative aspects of the school are entirely disorganized. Should you experience a real problem, it is very difficult to know just whom to address. The parent community is great, though. Very warm and intelligent. Looking forward, however, the college acceptances list in the upper school is pretty darn awful.

Rudolf Steiner is an amazing school. The best education, the warmest enviroment and the kindest administration. It is truly an honor being a member of the community.

This school transcends conventional educational processes whether public or private. If the dominant educational model were Waldorf, the world would be a better place. The children here celebrate life without sacrificing discipline. They are artists, muscians and scientists. Plato said two thousand years ago, I would teach children music, physics and philosophy but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning. Steiner does these three.

This is a great school for the right type of kid. It's not progressive in the sense of allowing your child to create their own program--there are limited elective choices. But, the program is so rich that my child took a broader array of classes than her friends at other independent schools in the city. It should be noted that the school does not have any resources for students with special learning, attention/anxiety, or emotional needs, but I'd recommend it wholeheartedly for students with good organizational skills, stamina, and passion for learning.

Rudolf Steiner students are incredibly welcoming and supportive of each other. The parent body is equally as warm and the teachers pay close attention to their students. Steiner students are lucky: in addition to taking academic subjects, they also take a large repretoire of art classes (visual, performing, instrumental, movement, and practical arts). The proximity to Central Park allows a good dig in the mud and simply time to experience the seasons. My child loves school and looks forward to coming to Steiner everyday.

Rudolf Striner provides one of the most well-rounded educational models in the NYC area. It provides a balances between physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual intelligence. At a micro motor skill level, waldolf students at Steiner, learned to express their thoughts through art, in an unprecedented way. The clarity of vision, the precision and maturity of their artistic ability demonstrates the caliber in which a students physical ability is linked to their spiritual and intutive intelligence to express in the most beautiful ways. The tone in which students learn and the form in which they interact demonstrates the emotional maturity that these prviledge students received throughout every interaction. Waldolf students are guided individually and collectively to reach their maximum potential via learning intellectual concepts in a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional manner that all involved capture essentials in an accelerated, intuitive, and spiritual manner.
