Our son had a beautiful kindergarten year at this Waldorf inspired charter school. Now in 1st grade we continue to be satisfied with the small class size. (23 students) and additional teachers aide. We believe that the education of our child is not solely the responsibility of any school system so we ...  Read more

I think it's unfortunate for all those who have left Journey on such bad terms, as for me and my family we have overall been happy with Journey as a whole. (With the exception of the parking and no good hot lunch program) We have seen improvements with rules and conduct and have worked side by side with ...  Read more

We love Journey! It's such a great community of parents, and the teachers are kind and obviously love what they do. My two boys started 2 years ago - when they were in 3rd and 5th grade. We were nervous that they would be welcomed into the tight knit group of kids - many who had known each other since ...  Read more

My daughter is in her 3rd year at Journey School. She is excited to go to school in the morning and speaks fondly of her days there. She went to an expensive private preschool and was coming home in tears all the time. So we now feel extremely blessed to be at Journey. I was a bit confused by some ...  Read more

Journey School has been such a blessing for our family. Although my children never complained about our former, public school, I spent so much time volunteering at their school and helping in the classrooms that I was able to see what really happens in the "traditional" system. Journey School doesn't ...  Read more

We are so grateful for having found this healthy and nurturing environment for our children. Kids get to be kids while learning how to be responsible, compassionate, whole human beings with integrity. While no place is perfect, every year of our 5 years here have gotten better and better! Nearly all ...  Read more

My 2 boys are starting their 4th year at Journey School. It has been a great fit for them. My oldest transferred here in 5th grade and went from hating school to loving it. He loves that he can be more creative and that the learning was more interactive. (No stupid worksheets - are what he said.) ...  Read more

If you search for a school, which picks up your child with an age appropriate learning method, you will love this school. A lot of meaningful lessons with no stress to the child. School day structure where the free spirit has place to drive. Individuation for different types of learning always close ...  Read more
