Open Quote I love Desert Sky! Having access to a tuition-free Waldorf education is great. My kids have had a wonderful learning experience at the school, which teaches them to truly understand rather than just memorize information. Besides their core academics they have been learning Spanish and German as well as singing and different instruments. There is also a school garden where the kids grow herbs, vegetables, and some fruit. Throughout the year the students (and the whole school community) participate in seasonal festivals and activities. And my children love their teachers, who care deeply about them and their needs and progress (and who have an excellent relationship with the parents). Close Quote

Open Quote Both of my daughters have been enrolled at desert sky since Kindergarten. I feel this was the best school I could find that mimicked the nurturing nature of home. The school believes in a play based cirriculum and focuses on learning with the whole body instead of limiting it to the head. The teachers are all wonderful and warm and well educated in both mainstream academics as well as Waldorf specific education. I also really enjoy the fellow parents and the warmth of school community. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
