Many of the teachers are great. The principal lacks leadership skills and appears to be phoning it in. Her main trick is smiling a lot while nodding her head while repeating jargon. We're wishing for a new principal who is inspired, intelligent and creative.

Champlain is a wonderful neighborhood school supporting the larger community of Burlington. It's a great school but needs help, as all schools do these days, thanks to some misguided Americans' great desire to spend money on bombs and tax cuts instead of education.

This school embodies balance - balance in population, balance in teaching styles in the building, and balance of energetic and peaceful climate. Nancy Z's strong leadership has really produced a well-functioning community where teachers, parents, and most importantly, students, can be proud of our school.

I use to go to this school from 1963 to 1968 and it was a great school then. now all off my children have gone there from K thur 5th and it has even gotten better with teacher and the principal is the best principal with the kids and the parents. I rate this school the highest in this area. 5% to Champlain Elementry School. Great Job to you all. From a former student and a former parent. Kim. S. Burlington,Vermont

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.
