Our Families Say

After homeschooling our 2nd grader and kindergartner, we stumbled across Coastal Waters. After a quick tour, we felt the Waldorf teaching philosophy aligned more with the educational principles we envisioned for our children. Although entrusting our kids with others was difficult, we enrolled our two kids with an open mind. It was apparent from the first day, that the environment and care for each individual child was heartwarming. Each instructor, regardless of grade, not only knows the name of each student, but embraces and learns about that individual child. The willingness to embrace each child with the same perspective of maximizing academic and personal growth is endearing. Having gone through traditional public school with my older children, the personal touch and appreciation for each individual child and their talents that comes from Coastal Waters makes the lengthy drive worth it. Furthermore, the personal investment of each member of the school shows that as a community, the success of the school and it's students will ensure emotionally healthy and mature young adults and contributing members of our communities.
