PARENTS

Welcome to the parent portal! Here you will find all the necessary information, forms, events, and policies of Acorn School.

Faculty & Staff

Here to foster the growth and imagination of your children.

What makes our approach so successful? We honor the childhood years. We create a classroom environment that is worthy of imitation. We allow the children to engage in creative play as well as a structured series of practical activities. Waldorf Education has been in the United States since 1928 and this play-based experiential learning method is a proven approach that children love. This love of school in the earliest years can lead to a life-long love of learning.
