We are considering a Waldorf school for our 9 y.o. daughter. She is currently in the 4th grade at the local public school. I am interested in any experiences and opinions about transitioning to Waldorf, considering she will move back a grade if/ when she starts the Waldorf school in Sept.. This is a K-8 school and I am concerned that our girl will feel diminished when she transitions back to the public High School in 5 years and is a grade behind her current classmates. I would especially like to hear any personal accounts of this transition back to public school and if there are any Waldorf schools that do not have kids this age drop back a year.
