  • Well, I've used a charter school, and our experience was outstanding. It really depends on the school and the parents involved. I've never used Waldorf.

  • Charter schools are hit or miss and depend on the school. There are some great ones around here including a Montesorri charter and there are some horrible ones around here. I looked into both Waldorf and Montessori and really liked the idea of both. Our only option around here is pay Montessori or getting into the charter Montessori by lottery. Really it depends on what you are looking for.
