14 Parent Reviews for Emerson Waldorf School

We've had all 4 of our kids at this school since 1998. Our oldest is now a rising junior at UNC-Chapel Hill. We love the way the Waldorf school preserves the love of learning, encourages wonder and mindfulness, and yet provides a rigorous, disciplined, and challenging curriculum without creating competition ...  Read more

We were so impressed with how the Waldorf curriculum (from pre-school/nursery to highschool) is designed to support each stage of a child's development allowing for the love of learning to naturally occur. My daughter loves to learn and she loves to go to school!! Emerson Waldorf is a place where a child ...  Read more

From the moment my family walked on to campus we knew this was a wonderful school. The more we learned the more we knew we had found a good place for our kids to get a solid foundation of skills and confidence to take with them as they grew up and ventured into the wider world.

Please do not send your child to this school unless you don't care about his/her well being or quality of education. It is by far the worst school in the district. The high school is a joke and if you send your child there, be prepared to spend a lot of money on tutors since your child will not learn ...  Read more

We've been at the school for seven years now, and we love it, and more importantly, our kids love it. They always want to go to school, even when they are sick. While most other schools are obsessing over test scores on very narrow range of skills, this education integrates music, art, movement, drama, ...  Read more

This school is terrible. Don't send your child here. They brainwash children and parents slowly until you realize it one day and it's too late. After being 4 years in this school, my child was so behind in academics that I had to hire a private tutor before transferring him to a different private ...  Read more

A loving environment that teaches social responsibility while providing a top-notch classical education! My youngest feels like she plays, sings and moves all day long while my oldest attends a high school where graduates get into top-notch colleges and earn impressive SAT scores. What a program!

Every child participates in activities that are usually choices or extras: music, drama, art, athletics, etc., yet our average SAT scores are higher than many area public, private and charter schools.
