this school was terrible my son was there for kindergarten and was getting beaten up on the playground where no teacher seemed to be able to see what was going on. He told me they were all sitting around talking during recess. he was scared to go to school and would come home crying and not even know why he was crying. He was stressed out and I had talks and emails with his teacher and the principal and nothing was really being solved so we took him out of this school.

This school has a dedicated teaching community that battles social issues everyday in their classrooms. Children who come from challenging home situations with enormous behavioral and emotional issues are enrolled at every grade level. parent participation at events held through the school year is modest at best and some events generate almost no parent participation. The school has a large cafeteria and has some of the nices, best-equipped playgrounds in the area. There is a dental clinic at the school. This school works very hard to meet the many many needs of its' students.

Very behind the times in teaching. They are trying though. Note: the school can't even afford to have a place for the kids to eat their lunches. They have to eat in their classrooms. Pretty sad Vermont. When we confronted them they said the board is thinking about it. But it may be 5-10 years before this happens. It took 15 years for them to finally build a new junior high school and alot of pressure from the parents. My daughters teacher is good, although my daughter feels lost in the teaching. We came from another school prior to this year (in a diff state) where she had no learning issues. Vermont schould really get on board with educting their kids.
