Bright Water Waldorf School Ratings & Reviews

February 28, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Just what is it about that child? Waldorf children live in wonder, have reverence for life, look you in the eye when speaking and have an authentic respect for self and others. Using the knowledge of how children learn, Rudolf Steiner realized that the curiosities, the restlessness, the predispositions, and the abilities of each age prove openings toward certain themes. Waldorf education/curriculum is designed to matter deeply to children as they go through their inner evolution. The content of subjects studied each year are truly soul food for the students. Steiner predicted that children would experience a deep sense of satisfaction when given the right topics at the right time. That is the magic sauce--the brilliance that has endured for 100 years.What does it mean to be a Waldorf teacher?Year after year as the Waldorf teacher shepherds his/her class through the grades, reverence and love develops for each child. After many years together, the teacher and students become like family. One of the many advantages of such a relationship is the ability to carry traditions and activities from one school year to the next. This sense of belonging helps develop the security that allows a child to invest energy in deep engagement in new concepts or knowledge.Waldorf teachers are free to seize opportunities to spark wonder and harness engagement. Our family is grateful that our children are in a school where their teachers are allowed to rely on their intuition and judgement and are actively encouraged to develop deep connections with students. Whether they know it or not, children hunger for culture and for a classic and meaningful education that feeds and nourishes the soul.Bright Water Waldorf School represents education as it should be. In many ways our school house on the hill is like our curriculum, old but good. Interpreting the distinguished Waldorf philosophy in a historic school building that creates the feeling that teachers and students have stepped outside of our high speed, multitasking, media driven electronic age and into a more grounded era that provides a looking glass back into days of yore such as ancient Greece. At our school, one will witness happy children and teachers immersed in a sense of timelessness that encourages childhood."Everything really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.ΓÇ¥ ~Albert Einstein

Before we picked Bright Water, we picked Waldorf.Why? Three main reasons. First, it has to do with the kind of childhood we want our kids to have. Mainly, we want them to be happy. For us, this means having them in a developmentally appropriate setting. Waldorf is ideal for this. It was designed from the beginning by educator Rudolf Steiner to focus on developmentally appropriate education at every age. Instead of premature reading and writing, there’s an early childhood program that stirs their sense of wonder at the world and focuses on the whole child. Starting in first grade, you have academics of the most holistic kind--including even two foreign languages (Spanish and Japanese at Bright Water)--and thoroughly integrated with music, movement, and art. The developmental appropriateness keeps kids happy and helps them develop a love of learning to last their lifetime.Our second reason has to with the kind of people we want our children to become. Mainstream public education’s focus on basic academics favors task skills over creativity and problem-solving. Such basic skills are not our family’s focus. We want to raise intrepid problem-solvers who are in touch with their own personal strengths. Our family’s own emphasis on exploring and problem-solving is at the heart of the Waldorf method.Third, overall educational outcomes. Notably, a substantial proportion of Waldorf kids get into top colleges and almost all go to college.Next… Why Bright Water?Seattle has two lovely Waldorf schools. Seattle Waldorf and Bright Water are both excellent. When we interviewed at Bright Water, we had terrific chemistry with the teachers who interviewed our whole family, and its location in North Capitol Hill worked better for us.We knew we would be happy, but the school has even exceeded our expectations. The children just finished their first year, and it was terrific. On weekends, our kindergartener even would look forward to Mondays so she could return to her magical classroom, its fairy tales, baking of bread, cooking of soup, and daily trips (rain or shine) to Volunteer Park right in the neighborhood. Our son--with enthusiasm dampened only by attachment to Mommy--also had a wonderful experience in the warm and cozy pre-K. The building is gorgeous and inspiring, and the teachers and staff are so committed to the kids.

We were drawn to Bright Water School as an alternative place for my son. It is calm, orderly, nurturing, lovely. It's a slower-paced environment, where kids aren't rushed around all day. All of the teachers subscribe to the Waldorf philosophy of development and teaching methods, so there is consistency among faculty. This is a very mindful, intentional school. For younger children especially, it can be a refuge. As to the reading and math, Waldorf teaches it formally during the proper developmental stage. It's true that for some kids, intervention for delays/special needs may come later than at other schools, and this is something the school is working on. For those who stick around, academics get intense in middle school. My son can attest to that! Our new administration is providing strong leadership as we take our school from being adolescent to mature. Over the past 6 years, I have personally benefited a lot from being a part of the parent community here. I'd say come see for yourself if the place would suit your family.

We have had mixed experiences with BWS. For K and pre-K this is a great environment, but if your child needs academic challenges at an early age, they are not going to get it here. We took my son out after the school insisted he attend a third year of Kindergarten even though it was clear he was bored. Our daughter, has been happy and enriched in her early grade experience, although it has become obvious that her reading and math skills have not been adequately developed. Teacher quality and effectiveness is highly variable. Most, if not all, teachers have no formal child development or education background other than Waldorf training. The administrative staff is the primary challenge. They are non-cummunicative, borderline hostile and ineffective in dealing with parent concerns, as well as the teachers. There have been several waves of student departures over the last few years due to unhappy parents and kids with learning disabilities that went undiagnosed for years. The school is now struggling with student retention. If you are willing to fully embrace the Waldorf way and can look past the staff issues, then check out BWS.
