OK when I went to Edmonds I thought it was the best. I loved all the teachers that I had. I just would like to know one thing.... What happened to Mr. Cosgrove and Mr. Wiebust? Its been a while since i've been there, just courious to know.

I belive ems is a great school for alot of reasons, i came to this school coming from a school that didnt treat me fairly at all! And coming here changed my life i started to actually care about school/grades and my goals in life. The teachers put they're lives on hold to stay late just to help you understand things, they care about you and your education 100%! I know if im still living here ill want my children to go to Edmunds Middle School, and i want to thank the school for a wonderful 3 years of my life.

Middle school is a hard time in life. EMS makes an excellent effort and is successful at reaching our to these kids. Public school is solid in reaching most children but it is not right for evey child. Even my learning challenged child has recieved excellent sensitivity and consideration from the faculty here. We believe in this community school and in their efforts to teach every child.

My daughter came to VT from TX where she had been homeschooled for a few years. She was nervous as most teens are that she would not fit in. This is also noticable as she is gothic, and in TX, she was one who stood alone. Here she found friends quickly, teachers who were very interested in finding things for her to be active in, and they were able to help her not only catch up to the speed of the school, but excel in her own self esteem. I give this school an A+!

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.
