Great school! My child has flourished here, where a "whole child" approach to learning is embraced. There is a lot of parental involvement which helps create a true sense of community. I cannot recommend this school enough.
The Circle School is centered on a family co-op model with amazing teachers, staff and families committed to creating an unparalleled learning environment for students. The artistic element is woven throughout the curriculum and imaginative play is encouraged--cultivating a life long love of learning, empowerment and creative thinking. When I moved to San Antonio, I was looking for a Waldorf type educational program and was excited to find the Circle School. It isn't a Waldorf school but shares many of Rudolf Steiner's ideas, as well as those of Reggio Emila. Our child's progress over the past two years has been remarkable. The community is very warm, diverse and open minded. Please note that substantial time and involvement of each family is required.
The Circle School is a wonderful community. Students, parents, and teachers work together to create an accepting and welcoming environment. I like the small community -- about 50 families. Stories are told from many different cultures. Kids learn Yoga, composting, French and more.
The Circle School is a family-owned cooperative in which each family dedicates 10 hours per month to helping the school. Parents are given significant leeway in how they volunteer. The teachers are fabulous and diverse: out of the 5 teachers, there are 2 men, an African-American woman, a graduate of UC-Berkeley, a former entomologist for the British Museum, and a hula-dancing minister's wife. The eclectic and talented teachers well represent the school. My daughters have excelled here, surpassing their peers at the public schools. Things can be a bit too funky for some (there was a peace march that some parents objected to), but everyone has a big heart and does their best to make others feel welcome.
