Desert Marigold School Ratings & Reviews

October 17, 2017 Submitted by a parent
I love this school for my children. They're able to thrive in an environment where things are taught to them that other schools have deemed unimportant. I cannot say enough good things about their teaching methods & drive 35 minutes each way, everyday to make sure my children get the experience to go to this school. I highly recommend Desert Marigold to anyone looking for a better alternative to the standard schools.

I would never recommend this school. We waited for 2 years to get off the wait list, and research Waldorf methods ahead of time. What a horrible disappointment this school turned out to be. Our son was labelled as a "bad fit" within two weeks of starting, and we were run out by insensitive and callous teachers and administration. Since starting at a public school, our son has performed at the top of his class and recovered his self-esteem. Please, please, do not believe the hype about DMS. We did, and it was a horrible experience for our sweet 6 year old.

While no school is perfect, DMS is perfect for us. We have been blessed with amazing teachers. I do believe more work needs to be done with admin. They seem to leave us in the dark about finances and where extra money is allocated and continually ask for more. But my children are happy, well adjusted and the community is more like a family.

I attended Desert Marigold School from 5th through 8th grade. I did really enjoy my time there, but after transferring into a public high school and into gifted and AP classes, I realized that while the emotional development and experiences students receive at DMS are very valuable, the academics are severely lacking. Even when comparing them to the regular level classes at my new school, it's easy to see how much I missed. I think that my teacher in particular was a pretty big factor in this. My teacher had me and a few other students working at a "higher" level in math in my later years there. However, the material that I was doing was barely the average level that the majority of students learn in other schools. It made my transition into my freshman year at a public school extremely difficult, because although I could understand the new material I was learning, I was missing large chunks of prerequisite information necessary for me to be able to be successful in my new classes. I was able to make the adjustment, but it was stressful and difficult for a large portion of my first year, and I still sometimes struggle with some of my school work, especially math. The work I did at DMS barely grazed the surface of what I was expected to know in any level class in high school. The art classes I had at DMS were fantastic and I'm grateful to have had them, but I really wish I'd been prepared in academics, as well as handling work loads. Due dates were almost nonexistent at DMS and homework was rare. When we did get any, it was usually art based, or even sometimes just coming up with an idea about a topic, again, usually art based. This is far from the the work situation at other schools. My friends who also moved schools have told me they struggled as well with these things, and the ones who transferred after their freshman year said it was extremely difficult. I think if their level of academics were brought up significantly, it would be a really successful school, but as is, I wouldn't recommend it, especially not for middle and high school.

It pains me to have to leave this review however I believe it is vitally important others understand what is occurring at Desert Marigold.I began educated myself on Steiner education and philosophy some time ago and had my heart set on sending my child to a Waldorf school. Dms has all the esthetics one could look for in a Waldorf environment but lacked in so many other areas. Starting from the school tour my family was misled completely about what the school valued in regards to education. Honestly there were blatant lies that were told about Math, Science high school curriculum and number of children that attended college after Dms. I witnessed first hand that behavioral issues in children are not addressed and unfortunately often get worse in this environment. In the early elementary the children receive ample opportunity to socialize and learn through play however this continues far too long into grades where the children are more than ready for a stronger curriculum. Steiner believed hole heartedly in life long learning. This school claims they inspire that but it is absolutely not the case. They have formed their own version of Waldorf and refuse any of the progressive Steiner education tools being used in other countries. I find the administration to be so unorganized that it not only effects the teachers but the children as well. The teachers are underpaid and most of them hold negative feelings about the school which ends up bleeding into the student body. When your teachers aren't supported how can you have a quality school? I have no doubts this school could be absolutely amazing if the administration was replaced and a more progressive Steiner philosophy was adopted. Do your homework on this school. It might look the part but your child will not receive a quality education.
