Hi All,

I'm researching the Waldorf Charter schools in CO for my almost six year old little boy. I'm considering moving us to CO.

Does anyone have any feedback about any of the following schools:

Juniper Ridge Community School, Grand Junction, CO

Mountain Phoenix Community School, Wheat Ridge, CO

Mountain Song Community School, Colorado Springs, CO

Mountain Sage Community School, Fort Collins, CO

I'm mainly looking for NO STAR Testing and Attachment Parenting International types of family / school communities if anyone has any insight or experience I'd love it.

Thanks!

Katie

I have friends who are parents, children, and teachers at Mountain Sage. It's a lovely school. I'm impressed with how wholesome and Waldorfy they've been able to make a public school. The parents seem kind and engaged. A dad built a beautiful loft for one classroom and another made the coolest May pole for their festival. I've gone to some of their crafts and festivals as a guest.

We also have a few part-time schools here in Fort Collins -- where the student attends 2 days per week and does his/her work at home with mom/dad as more of a resource and helper than a homeschooling parent. Just a mention.

peace,

Hi Katie,

I moved to Denver from Indiana 8 years ago and love it. I love Waldorf (though my 10 yo is currently at a Montessori school.)

I have a friend with a son at Mountain Phoenix. Let me know if you'd like me to connect you and I'm happy to talk about other Colorado questions!

Our daughter goes to Mountain Sage and this is her second year. She loves it. We are more into attachment parenting ourselves and I would say a lot of parents in our school are too. Check out our Facebook page and we do mornibg coffee each Monday after drop iff if you would like to join us and get to know us a little more. PM me for more info.
