Olympia Waldorf School Ratings & Reviews

My daughter has been incredibly happy with her experience thus-far at OWS. She's connected with her teachers, shown a renewed passion for learning, and been excited to go to school.

"Olympia Waldorf School was just what our daughter needed. She started kindergarten at one of the Olympia School District's sought after alternative programs. Though the program's curriculum differed in some ways from traditional public school, it was still public school. The class sizes were large, the classrooms often chaotic, recess times limited, the teachers struggling to meet the needs of so many different children (with minimal support from the administration), and academics were being pushed at inappropriately young ages (kindergarten is the new first or second grade in public school). We made the switch to OWS mid-year and the shift in our daughter was remarkable. On our drive home from the interview our daughter remarked ""this is MY school, Mom, this is the school for me."" She went from being tearful before and after school to smiling and excited. Now in her third year at OWS she is thriving. She is drawn to math and reading, and is learning German, knitting, flute, and is getting ample time to move and be outside. She enjoys going to school, and loves her teacher. We look forward to our younger daughter starting at OWS next fall. Outside of the classroom, I have been impressed with the administration's commitment to fostering a thriving school environment, and ensuring it's long-term sustainability through quality programming, ensuring fair wages for staff and faculty, and maintaining a balanced budget. Our family is very thankful for OWS!"

My children have been attending OWS for 4 years & we are so pleased with the education they are receiving. There are no screens, state testing, or overcrowded & overstimulating classrooms. The students are given space to explore their world while getting a quality education. The magic of childhood is valued & preserves as students build skills & confidence. The Waldorf curriculum is brought in a way that is open minded with little dogma.While the school has experienced staff turn over the last couple of years, they continue to strive to provide quality education with well trained teachers. We could not be happier!

"Any family looking to attend this school should make certain to do their due diligence. The information regarding OWS online is largely out of date and grossly incorrect. There remains ONE grades teacher with any experience or respect for Steiner education. There is zero leadership and that is apparent in the fact that classroom teachers have been fleeing at alarming rates, even newly hired teachers choose to leave before the school year is out. The ""leadership"" has for some grades hired the uneducated/trained playground staff to ""fill-in"" as a classroom teachers. Despite the fact that tuition has increased every year 6-10% for four years the school has failed to retain the fabulous teachers that once made this school a great school. It is in pitiful shape and it is shameful. Money is not the problem here. The people that currently lead and teach at this school do not have the skill nor the ability to live up to the school's mission."

I am very pleased with the quality of education at OWS. The teachers are dedicated to the growth of the whole child, emotional, physical and academic. My children have thrived there and they love school.
