This school is run like a very tight ship. Ingrid Chrisco has a handle on everything that is going on. My daughter has four core teachers who I would rate as A+, A+ A- and B-. Most of the teachers can be found still working at 5 PM except the Math teacher who is the hockey coach and the English teacher who is the B-. The kids in this school are great with very few problems. As with any school the kids that do the best are usually blessed with parents the care the most.

Teachers are awesome. Classes are awesome. Its basically a Chuck Norris worthy school. I pity the fool that doesn't like this school!

They administration and staff seem incapable, from the top down, of communicating with the parents when it comes to poor academic performance from the student until it is too late to do anything about it. As long as the child is not a discipline problem, they appear happy to let him fail. Their answer to everything seems to be 'let us worry about your child. . . ' which they then fail to do.

School administration communicates poorly, and they're hard to reach, but they think they do a great job. They pride themselves on their website, but it's always behind, looking at what already happened rather than what's coming. Their efforts to provide and implement a suitable IEP for my son were consistently not met, choosing what they usually do for students needing extra help rather than by what a student really needs. My son is going elsewhere next year.

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.
