A person entering Sunrise School of Miami will often notice particular things: the colors and shapes inside are different, the people (teachers and students) seem different - they greet you in such a friendly way. One of the many comments that we hear from parents and visitors is "imagine what I could have become - had I have gone to a school like Sunrise School of Miami". Waldorf education makes a difference - the only age developmentally appropriate curriculum - teaching the whole child. A school where imagination outshines memorization!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Observing the many unique changes in the students as they unfold through the grades.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The sense of community and desire of the parents to create a strong, growing Waldorf school foundation here in Miami, Florida.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All of the faculty and staff care about each child and recognize and cultivate the many talents in each child. This is demonstrated and observed on a daily basis.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a campus that embodies the principles associated with Waldorf philosophy - self sustaining and designed to meet the needs of the student and community. Complete with farm gardens, performance center and green space filled with trees and nature.

I was introduce to Waldorf Education by a friend that refer me to Sunrise School of Miami. Our family has found not only the best and most complete education but a wonderful group of individuals who are entirely devoted to bring our children's education to its highest standards. This is non-for-profit organization that has been established based on the dreams and desires of actual families, whose time, knowledge and dedication have made possible for others, like ourselves to enjoy the wonders of this fantastic holistic education. I am truly thankful for the administration and faculty's dedication and I encourage anyone with the intention of donating toward Educational organizations to consider them. This is a young Waldorf School that has the social commitment, the courage and the heart of the strongest. Let's assure that Waldorf Education can continue to be an option for our children in South Florida.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy its own installations, maintain the tuition affordable to reach a lot more families, create a scholarship fund and continue to provide our children with a holistic education ...where imagination outshines memorization...!

Ways to make it better...

I could only help them more financially!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the financial challenges that are overtaken by the founders in order to maintain the tuition affordable and at reach for all.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If I had 10 million dollars I would donate them in heart beat! Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart
