Both our kids go to Living Wisdom School. The small class sizes give them plenty of attention and they are both thriving academically as well as growing leaps and bounds in confidence. The focus on mutual respect and kindness in their actions continues to have a positive effect too. My oldest even loves doing her homework which blows me away as she is generally a procrastinator! Both of the kids' teachers are highly engaged and excellent in their approach and interaction with all the students. It is a warm and welcoming, diverse and inclusive school and I am excited to have my family a part of this well run institution through 8th grade. Nice building too with lots of room for expansion, can't recommend enough!

Supports LD students: Strongly agree

My formerly home-schooled kids made the transition to Living Wisdom School with ease. My sensitive youngest child has thrived in their environment of kindness and respect.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The place is well run and organized and I am impressed by the level of engagement from all staff.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
From having some of the older kids read to the younger ones, to the yoga classes held once a week, the focus on respect and compassion were key reasons we opted for Living Wisdom over other schools in the area.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
So far, all the teachers we have interacted with are highly engaged, very capable and friendly. Our youngest is quite sensitive but has been growing in confidence and really thriving in the Living Wisdom School environment.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is regular but not too burdensome, I think the balance is right.



- a
Good pre-k program, great teachers. Great communication from teachers and many opportunities to join in school activities.

A number of their classes have heavily mixed grade levels which can make it very difficult to teach each child to the appropriate level. Likely because of this issue it doesn’t appear that their classes really prepare kids academically. So if you want to transfer to another school your child isn’t likely to be ready unless you do a lot of work at home. So you are kind of stuck with their system.

After reading the LWS web site we thought it would be a great place for our child. A safe, loving, and nurturing environment. Our child has some social/ emotional issues and they really didn’t have the skills or resources to cope with it. In the end they really didn’t want to deal with a child that fell outside the norm. We felt that their position was contrary to what they profess to be their values.



- a
This school has a wonderful and close knit school and spiritual community. My wife and I love that our children practice yoga and meditation and that they are always encouraged to be calm and present. Our son is in pre-school and he loves circle time, show and tell, art and nature. Our daughter is in kindergarten and she loves math and reading as well as the curriculum around art and nature. Small class sizes allow a lot of personal attention from the teachers.
