Marin Waldorf School Ratings & Reviews

Waldorf education is the fastest growing educational model in the country for a reason. These guys insulate the young kids from social media stress, and they modulate homework to keep the kids sane. A wonderful experience that creates wonderfully successful young adults.

This is a wonderful school! My children are being taken care on so many levels and are learning in the deepest sense of the word. We have experienced early education and the grades. The teachers are fantastic! There were some issues in the recent past with administration and staff, but MWS is committed to making positive change and coming together as a community. This school comes with my highest recommendation. Come for a visit and see for your self.

A.MAZING!! I can't recommend Marin Waldorf School enough. Not only is my first grader excited to go to school everyday but he is getting an amazing and unique education. If he's not rattling off multiplication or division equations he's singing in Mandarin. He also loves his art and music classes. It's such a well rounded education. He has great friends in all different grades because the children feel so close to each other. And the sense of community helps us all feel connected.

I have two kids at Marin Waldorf, currently 4th grade and second grade. We came to the school when our eldest went to preschool, and we knew nothing about Waldorf education's philosophy, methods or curriculum. I thought the preschool looked great because the kids go outside every day, rain or shine. It also didn't hurt that it was the most affordable of the options we looked at.Through preschool, the two-year kindergarten and now up through 4th grade I can say I am delighted with the education my kids are receiving. I swore to myself that I would not send my kids to a private school, because after all, I went to public schools growing up, and living in Marin we have some of the best public schools around. But public school education today is foreign to me. Way too much homework, constant standardized tests, teachers subject to so-called accountability regimes that incentivize teaching to the tests. Less and less music, drama, art. The Waldorf philosophy and methods take a little getting used to, but I think they've nailed it. In short, so far my family's experience at the school has been terrific. It is rigorous academically, but I see the curriculum and the methods preparing my kids not just for future employment but for an enriched life.OK, now the qualifiers. It is true that when you get into first grade and up, the quality of education depends greatly on the quality of your child's class teacher. The class teacher is meant to stay with the same class from first to eight grade, and it responsible for the "main lesson" each day, a two-hour class at the start of each day that focuses on "blocks," e.g. a math block for 5 weeks, a literary arts block for 4 weeks, etc. If the class teacher is not up to par (and it happens), you may as well throw in the towel and go elsewhere. This is purely luck of the draw.Anyone with young kids headed to preschool/kindergarten or first grade, I highly recommend giving this school a good look.

My wife and I are extremely concerned about the state of public education; specifically about the defunding of arts, music, and sports. Further, the mandatory testing of our young children is putting a stress on them that they are not yet ready, or equipped, to feel. In response to these concerns, we sought out a private school education for our son, and feel beyond fortunate to have found Marin Waldorf.Marin Waldorf is based on the teachings of a 20th century philosopher and teacher, named Rudolph Steiner who proposed an alternative to the commonly held (and still current) prevailing belief that learning is primarily based on logic and objective measurement. He put emphasis on art and imagination and, as well, on the importance of which type of learning is most important at the given age and capability of the child. He did not want to force logic without context or interest. He'd rather build interest, first. Doesn't that make sense?? Waldorf's message is to "awaken the joy of learning."Our son is in first grade. We have been very happy with his education and teachers, so far. We have found them to be warm, compassionate, intelligent people. As alluded to in previous comments, yes, it does seem that it was a tough few years for the school's administration. We feel very confident now, however, in the addition of a new administrator last year (Will Stapp) and have already seen positive changes. We hope and have confidence that he will be here, for many years to come.The school asks that we not participate in "media" with our children; meaning television, video games, etc... While this first seemed somewhat difficult, we are now seeing and reaping the many benefits, such as increased patience and calmness. There is much literature to support that media interferes with the development of a young brain. We figure that our son has his whole life to be bombarded with external media messages, and we'd like to protect him from that, as long as we can, so that when he is older, he will have a broader frame of reference, and will, hopefully, have the desire to protect himself from the same.I couldn't recommend the school more, and if you are on the fence, check out one of their open houses. They give you a great glimpse into the school.
