We still have a hard time believing a school this wonderful, caring and beautiful exists. We were able to get in two years after being on the wait list, entering at 4th grade, and it was worth every day of waiting. Our son has grown so much since being here. Not only does he have a whole class full of friends, he loves his teachers and aids, and has a newfound love of learning. Desert Marigold has provided an environment he feels inspired and safe in. We LOVE this school.

Let your kids be kids. Amazing campus, excellent parent and teacher involvement and communication. Your childs creative side will surface quickly and their social skills will boost and help them become wonderful human beings.

Were so happy to have found a school that truly attends to the whole child. Staff and teachers are caring and smart, and Waldorf principles are woven through all their interactions -- its not just a curricular approach but a way of life. Our daughter had tried several schools, including art/performing arts charter schools, before coming here and finally finding \"her people.\" Creativity, self-expression, thoughtfulness, and a sense of purpose are valued and encouraged. Highly recommended.

I homeschooled my child for her first 7 years. We found this school and decided to make a change. I am very impressed with the learning that takes place here. When they say they make there own books you need to understand what this means. The students are given lectures and need to take notes with these notes the form many drafts on the topic. They do a lot of very impresseve writing and study of the subject where it be science, history and language arts. You would never get in any other school. The children are very kind and welcoming to everyone. I love this school.

Desert Marigold School is a family in the best sense of the word! I moved to Phoenix to place my adopted daughter in this school. I personally know successful graduates of Waldorf education who are now making great contribution to a more conscious planet. I was also encouraged by a good friend who was trained as a Waldorf educator. After two years I am more convinced than ever that I made the perfect choice for my child. Waldorf teaches the whole person to excel in body, mind, soul and spirit and live healthfully without being unduly influenced by popular culture. It encourages and develops personal expression and independence and provides resources for parents to help in this effort. Children grow up with the same teacher and classmates through the lower grades, which trains them to interact and form close bonds with many different people. Desert Marigold has an extensive waiting list; apply when your child is pre-kindergarten.
