AP scores off the charts in all subjects. Arts program that leads New England with theatre and musical productions. I've been in Gilford three years now and see a vibrant school with outstanding leadership.

Gilford School District is full of dedicated teachers and administrators. The students receive a top education and are fully prepared for college. During my four years there I got to know all of the the teachers, some on an even more personal level, and it made them very approachable. The teachers truly love what they are doing and are actually exited to teach the students. This school district helped mold me into the person I am today, and for that I am grateful.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 New Hampshire used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test that measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Hampshire. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficiency level 3.
