Watershed School has been a lifesaver for my son and our entire family! After years of testing, tutors and cajoling my creative, hands-on kid to engage more in his public school, he's finally excited and thriving as a result of the dynamic, relevant and intriguing curriculum at Watershed. My son has specifically commented that he's learned more at Watershed this school year than he had in all his other years of schooling combined! They encourage critical thinking and don't cop of with multiple choice or rote memorization tests. They challenge students with timely, thought provoking questions and curriculum that puts the onus on the students to reflect and develop their own opinions, and then share their personal experiences/beliefs in a supportive, accepting and FUN environment. It's a super tight community that values its students and parents and goes above and beyond to create an inclusive environment that specifically addresses each student's needs, and YES pushes them to their edges (but not beyond) to help them develop the resilience to persevere. There aren't cliques and students of different ages, gender identities, socioeconomic status', sexual orientations all hang together. I've never seen or heard of a student being excluded or ostracized. I think the week long wilderness trip at the beginning of the school year creates an environment where the kids learn to depend on each other and really creates and opportunity for bonding. We're so impressed and the staff and community at Watershed school have surpassed our expectations! Go on a school tour and see for yourself!

Wow! As my son was walking out the door for school today he stopped and turned back to us and said with such emotion and sincerity, "Thank you SO MUCH for making it possible for me to go to Watershed. It's just AWESOME!"Also, at the breakfast table last week he expressed how relieved he was to actually look forward to going to school and that for the first time ever, he doesn't dread school.Wow!! MIRACULOUS!Thank YOU for welcoming my son and creating such a supportive and inspiring environment for him to learn and connect. I'm SO impressed with the community, educators, curriculum, culture and opportunities to engage in the Watershed world.I'm so profoundly relieved and thrilled that I too feel supported and no longer feel so alone and overwhelmed by this daunting endeavor of parenthood.Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

The overall program seems like a good idea, but my son with a learning disability would receive constant harassment. My other son who attended the school told stories of how they would constantly bully his brother and he wouldn't stand up because he was scared he too would face the social hierarchy. The students there forms cliques and those who don't fit in receive constant bullying.

My daughter attended Watershed School from grades 6-12. She enrolled when the school was just 2 years old. There were bumps in the road but she received a good education and developed close relationships with some teachers. The travel component of Watershed School instilled in her a love of international travel and a sense of global citizenship. She currently attends an excellent private college. That said, I only rated a 3 because the school continually had problems with leadership and student culture/community to the point of serious dysfunction. In their quest to have a meaningful community, staff members often micromanaged students relationships and interactions, frequently based on the words of one person. The kids at times described the atmosphere as oppressive and stifling. Meanwhile students do get bullied, ostracized and develop cliques and mean behavior at Watershed. Additionally Watershed School often turned a blind eye to the behavior of students whose parents had deep pockets. Watershed talks an excellent line about community. They have the academics nailed as far as I am concerned but need to really work on the community piece.
