It is almost impossible for a child to get out side assistance or testing. The special education is a joke. The school doesn't want to pay for any services that may cause a budget problem. Parents have to argue, plead and threaten legal action before something is done. Forget about getting meetings in a timely manner. If you are looking for a supportive school don't stop here. However, if your child is on an average or higher level it will work fine for you. The community is great unless you have a different opinion about anything from education to gun control. The new school special educator is great. They will probably fire her since she is on the child's side not the school.

This school is very concerned about behavior and how to control that behavior....it has made it impossible for the kids to get a good education....they don't seem to have the kids well-rounded interests at heart. The only good thing I can say is that most of the teachers have a real love for what they do but the system they have to work within is majorly flawed and the students all suffer!

A school that has a high percentage of needy children and families. This school is committed to those families but unfortunately if you are not in this population, your child/children miss out. There are very few, if any, opportunities for enrichment and unless you are significantly delayed, enough to warrant an IEP, you may also miss out on Title I services. There is a cap on the number of children that can be served. There is a great tolerance and general acceptance of bad and unsafe behavior and a belief that discipline should not be punitive. Sadly, this school is drowning and it is the children that suffer the greatest consequences.

Great community support for the school and kids. Very caring teachers and staff. The scores were abysmal, but great opportunities for learning and enrichments. Great service and support staff for children with special needs.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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. As a result, GreatSchools' ratings for Vermont currently reflect 2012-13 test results, the most recent year with data for all subjects.

2013-14 state-level results are not available for the Vermont NECAP; please see here for more information.

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.
