My children have attended both Edmunds and the Integrated Arts Academy. There is lice at both schools. I can attest to that. There is lice in many schools in Vermont (I know friends in Underhill, South Burlington, Williston and beyond who've encountered lice) and across the country, including in very hoity-toity schools in California (except the parents there can afford to pay people to pick out their kids' lice. Really).

I went here and it was terrible!I was bullied by a girl and I only made one friend.The girl who bullied me eventually ended up finding my phone number,calling me,and threatning me.There is also a HUGE lice problem,everybody there has it,I had it for six months because whenever I got rid of it,I got it again.I transfered to edmunds and was much happier.

Although many people think of H.O. Wheeler as a bad school and a bad environment, I completely disagree. H.O. Wheeler gets the best teachers and the most funding of all the elementary schools in Burlington. The reason many people think of it poorly is because most parents don't get involved. I graduated from H.O. Wheeler years ago and now I am a Sophmore at Burlington High School with national test scores in the top 1%, a GPA of 3.5, and I take all honors and AP clases, including a college course called 'Religious and Philosophic Perspective on Human Experience.' I credit most of my success and desire to learn to the wonderful educators at H.O. Wheeler Elementary School. I was always encouraged to try new things, and the teachers let you work at your own pace. The extracurricular programs there are also wonderful and educational.

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.
