Posted January 20, 2014

This is our fourth year at the Madrona School. All three of our children are there and are thriving beautifully. I love the focus and emphasis on each individual child and their development and how they also work with bringing each class together and building strong social skills. The academics are excellent as well as the arts music and outdoor time. The outdoor nature kindergarten days have really been my children's favorite and really set the school apart from others my older children attended. There is a strong parent community and parent involvement and it's a great place to be a part of. As with other Waldorf schools the teachers move with the students through the grades and this is something that we have found so helpful for our children. Our children are able to build close relationships with their teachers and grow with them. We feel lucky to have found such an amazing Waldorf school.

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.
