Because the school approaches each child as an individual with unique and lovable qualities. They also do not have computers, play games or watch t.v. at school but do allow children time outside with music and art interwoven into their academic work.

I taught at this school, and may always regret leaving it for the rest of my career. It doesn't get better than this school. It has it's problems like every other school, but the children are the happiest and healthiest I've seen.

The Waldorf School provides a very well-rounded education. It teaches children how to think independently, explore and realize their talents, and develop into their fullest potential as a human being.

My kids LOVE school. In anything we do outside of school, other adults who encounter them -- camp counselors, coaches, the piano teacher, the nature educator leading a hike, the storyteller at the bookstore, etc. -- remark on how engaged and curious they are and what joy and initiative they bring to everything they do. This is exactly what I wanted for my kids. The teachers are not just educators by profession, it is in their core. They are born teachers and are beyond dedicated to each child and family in the school. I am so grateful to be able to send my kids there. The WSSS community upholds my family's values and is my best ally in raising my kids.

The training the teachers receive helps them to teach in a manner appropriate for each grade's specific psychological stage and level of development. The curriculum is elegantly designed to complement the same stages of development. And the teachers treat each other and the students with the utmost respect and love. I am amazed at the way my son is learning to respect himself, plant and animal life, and others. He has learned to display the respect that has been modeled for him by all the adults at the Waldorf School. I believe the need for parent involvement in the extracurricular life of the school lets our children see how important we believe their education is. And I adore the well-roundedness of our students because the curriculum integrates art, music, and language arts into every field of study. Kudos!

Over 10 years ago, my younger brother attended the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs. The school gave him a break from the prejudice and negativity he lived with in the public school system. Now, for the last 6 years, my wife and I have had our children at the WSSS. The school is a warm and nurturing environment for our children. Our kids love school and have a gleam in their eyes when they share what happened during their day.

At WSSS you will find a total commitment not only from Faculty and Staff but from Students. We learn because we want to learn and the experience becomes greater. Thank you

The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs teaches the whole child through both innovative and proven teaching methods. Students develop a true love of learning. WSSS provides both a classical education (history, languages, etc) presented in a way that is fully integrated with the fine/creative arts (music, drawing, painting) and practical arts (knitting, woodworking, cooking, gardening, etc.). Children are allowed to enjoy their childhood and are not forced into the rigors of academia until they are ready. The Waldorf mehtods are based on the child's physical and emotional development as they progress through the grades, and each grade's curriculum corresponds to needs that the student's have at that age level. The Waldorf School of Saratoga springs is a model for education in America and the world. The faculty, staff, and entire school community is truly dedicated to the education and enrichment of the students. The school could not exist without their combined efforts.

The Waldorf School in Saratoga Springs has some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever known--and I was a teacher for 33 years in what was considered the best school district among 25 other school districts. My colleagues were also dedicated, but none so dedicated as the teachers at the Saratoga Springs Waldorf.

Absolutely the best high school in the area for a creative, sensitve, artistic kid. Mine thrived in it and is now a very successful college student -- she would have foundered in a public school.

I have two children at WSSS and truly wouldn't have them anywhere else. This multi-disciplinary and developmentally appropriate approach to education is refreshing in today's world. Every child should have the opportunity to attend a school like this and be instructed by teachers of this caliber. Saratoga Springs is lucky to have the Waldorf School.

I have two boys attending Waldorf School of Saratoga, and they both love school. The teachers really care about the children. The academics are excellent, movement and art are woven into the curriculum. The curriculum is designed around child development and each year builds on the last. The children have the same teacher from first to eighth grade and the teachers go to teacher training in each summer to prepare for the next years curriculum. My eldest son had gone to public school until fifth grade, by which time he hated school. Waldorf has been an amazing experience for him, he loves school now. We sent our younger son there from first grade. I highly recommend this education.
