I would appreciate any experiences someone may like to share regarding Rudolf Steiner schools and giftedness.
Our little boy is currently attending Rudolf Steiner kindergarten and thrives there. He has hypersensitivities, especially regarding noise and touch, so a small group of children and a calm environment really suit him. He is also very imaginative and loves their storytelling.
However, I am concerned about his academic needs being meet by the school as it looks like they concentrate mainly on art. Also, from what we learned from books about Steiner schools, there seem to be lots of repetition in learning some subjects, such as math, which from our experience with him usually makes him bored and leads to behavior issues.
Any advice or experience (good or bad) you feel like sharing would be highly appreciated.
