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.
I love this school. The parent teacher involvement coordinator has been a great addition to this years team.
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
