I was reading an article in the New York Times the other day about The Waldorf School in Los Altos (A Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute). A friend and client (Alan Eagle) is quoted in the article as rejecting the notion that children need technology aids (computers, iPads, etc.) in grammar school to thrive. Alan offers a fascinating philosophy about education here in the heart of Silicon Valley—and he happens to work at one of the most cutting-edge technology firms in the world (Google)!
This is what I absolutely love about living here on the Mid-Peninsula. We have many, many strong points of view about important topics such as education in a very small geographic area. The intellect that surrounds us locally is just amazing. Our choices in education here range from excellent public schools to a variety of independent school models—whatever your views on childhood education may be, it’s almost certain that an option exists here which will work for you and your family.
