|GreatSchools Ratings for Vermont|
In calculating these ratings, GreatSchools analyzed the 2011-2012 New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) reading, writing, math, and science results for the school and compared them to the NECAP results for all Vermont schools with the same grade levels.
If there are no GreatSchools Ratings for a school, the school's test results were either not reported or incomplete. The different student groups are identified by the Vermont Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
Keep in mind that when comparing schools through GreatSchools Ratings, it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs.
