I do! My kids go to a great public school. Two of the three kindergarten teachers are Waldorf teachers. There's a Spanish Immersion program which my kids participate in. Ds can speak Spanish pretty well after 4 years in this program. There's a very active PTO that puts out fun family-oriented programs each month. This month's was our annual international potluck supper. All families were invited to attend and bring a dish that represents their ethnic heritage. There's a contest with student and teacher judges and prizes for various categories: spiciest, etc. I sit on the PTO board and edit the monthly newsletter and I really enjoy it.
This is not a lily-white suburban school. It is in downtown Charlottesville and has a diverse group of children--some from rich, well educated families, others from a housing project, and everything in between. The principal is friendly and accessible, parents are welcome in the building. You don't even need an "excuse" (like volunteering) to visit your child. I can drop in and have lunch or hang out during recess with my children. Most of the teachers are bright and enthusiastic and the students are very friendly for the most part. One day, my 2 year old fell down and was crying, and one of the students came up to me and gave us a band-aid that she had in her pocket. My daughter's class had a Christmas celebration with a pinata. My 2 year old didn't get any candy, so a boy in the class gave my son ALL of his candy.
The building is clean and bright with lots of windows. There's a fabulous playground with garden space. Pick up time is a social hour with the other parents. It's just a great community. It breaks my heart that ds will move to the upper elementary next year. (Ch'ville is so small that it has just one upper elem, middle school & high school--but they're big schools, not intimate like the elementary schools.
