This upcoming school year will be my children's second year attending and we love this school!!! I have never witnessed a greater staff or a better principal! He is very involved with the children and their activities. Its so wonderful to see someone in leadership be so "fun like" involved with elementary students like he is.

This school is wonderful and has excellent teachers that excel in helping your children do the same, but also doing it in fun and exciting ways for kids instead of pushing them too hard. They have a great community garden, healthy lunch and snack programs, winter sports program, and every Thursday sing a long where parents can come in and sing with their kids. Children here are encouraged ot learn without feeling pressure so they can enjoy being a kid!

Green Street School has many positive aspects. However, the overall culture appears to be stagnant in that there have been no real 21st century initiatives that have increased academic performance, addressed the diversity of the school or accounted for increased and modern technology.

I haven't met all the teachers but I think Joanne Barber and Sue Snow are incredible dedicated teachers who love the children and put them first in all things.

Excellent teachers (w/ only 1 or 2 exceptions) with innovative ideas. Great music and art programs, as well as lots of other activities (plays, variety show, spelling and geography bees, etc.) A very safe, very nurturing, very stimulating environment. No sports. Parental involvement welcomed in the classroom, on field trips, in musical activities. We were very happy that our 2 children got to experience this wonderful public school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Vermont used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing and grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The NECAP reading, math, and writing tests are given in the fall and test students on content taught in the previous year. The science portion of the NECAP is administered in the Spring each year and has its results released the following Fall. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Vermont. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
