Answer: it depends. Schools vary and some waldorf schools are probably more AP than others. Further, depending on housing costs, families and teachers may or may not live close to the school.
One way to find out would be to look for a local neighborhood newsheet or an alternative newspaper which lists events for the whole city. Look to see if LLL meetings are listed, look for playgroups or whatever else you might like to have around. Check out the ads for natural food stores. Phone some of the numbers listed for the events and ask a few questions about the flavor of the neighborhood.
My only experience around this has to do with the Chicago Waldorf School. They were renting a school from the Archdiocese. The neighborhood was not thriving. After a few years the neighborhood was thriving. I don't know that the school played any role in the change in real estate values. The school moved up to another building owned by the Archdiocese, located in Rogers Park. This neighborhood was really scary. One of the teachers even got mugged, early one morning. After a few years the area began to turn around, prices began to rise, etc. The school did one thing that clearly helped: working with Loyola University (landowner) and the local Catholic Parish (running a food pantry) they founded a community garden. Children and parents planted flowers and vegetables and most of the food went to the pantry to be distributed to hungry families. The garden definitely improved the look and feel of the neighborhood.
The second part is definitely off-topic, sorry.
