Desert Sky Community School Ratings & Reviews

March 09, 2016 Submitted by a community member
I had researched Waldorf education and was very excited by this concept. The faults In th school don't lie in this but in the fact that many to the teachers have not actually been trained formally in the Waldorf method. Additionally they are trying to increase their numbers to fund and expand the school but then children are not being properly guided in their activities which creates an Unsafe environment. I was told in. I sorus occasions about othe todos bars behavior by a teacher in front of the kids and witnessed witch hunts take place against these kids. The kids would be scolded then the teacher would roll her eyes and the. comment to me in front of the kids about th child. The Kids were not directed at all which does allow for imagination but again the to her just reacted and scolded, never trying to guide the Kids. The environment is unsafe across the board and Numerous parents have withdrawn their kids due to the toxic environment. 6 kids in one class so far this year alone that so am aware of.

I don't think the administration or the staff are trying to hurt kids. However, some of the kids will certainly not be helped by their policies. If you have a boy born after April 15th then expect them to keep him in kindergarten for an extra year. Unfortunately, this "policy" is not brought up until your first parent teacher conference after you are enrolled and have attended a few months. The next problem is that they don't "teach" in kindergarten but they expect your kid to reach a certain level of competency through sing alongs, etc. As a result they may keep your child in kindergarten for years. The front desk lady boasted that her child repeated kindergarten 3 times. They view it as a "staging" area. However, in this waiting room your child will not be taught to read. What they are actually doing is "academic red shirting". If you are going to go to this school it would help you to research this topic. 60 Minutes has done a great piece on it as well as many reputable journals and academics. What it does accomplish is that it inflates their testing grades because they have so much older kids being tested in lower grades. This helps the school get their numbers but it does not help a child to delay learning to read for years past their peers in public schools. This practice of holding back around 40% of the kindergarten class every year seems like they are robbing money from the state. If you want a visual on this see how many kids are allowed into kindergarten vs how many kids can fit into the 1st grade classroom. So, they are using the kindergarten classroom as a kind of revenue generating machine where the physical layout of the school dictates that they have to fail enough kids to have a reasonable 1st grade class to fit into the 1st grade classroom. What they are doing is wrong and possibly illegal. However, if you want to academically red shirt your child already then this is the school for you. The staff is friendly and they are clearly trying really hard and really believe in what they are doing. However, what they are doing is not based in science and probably not healthy for your child.

Very happy with the teachers, administration, and curriculum at Desert Sky. Our child is allowed to explore and play and there is little stress. We feel involved in decisions and part of the school community as a whole. Couldn't be happier.

I have both of my daughters enrolled at Desert Sky and they both have been with the school since Kindergarten. It is the closest thing a mother can find to homeschooling as far as a loving caring intimate environment.

Our school engages the head, heart and hands of my children. Their creativity soars because of this curriculum. My energetic son is engaged in learning not with worksheets, but through various mediums: handwork, music, German, balance and core movements, stories, songs and lots of active play outdoors. My daughter is enjoying a play based Kindergarten that is giving her confidence in her world through a rhythm to her day, building her will with repetition and a reverance for the world around her. She is taught life building skills of working with others, setting the table, washing the clothes, tending a garden, and baking bread to name a few examples. The faculty at Desert Sky is professional, attentive, warm and caring, taking each family to heart. We couldn't be more thankful for Desert Sky and its ability to offer our family a tuition-free Waldorf education.
