I think CES and its reputation of a school of choice is on borrowed time. I'm Concerned about spiraling scores, a school board with the agenda of slashing budgets and a clear lack of experienced administer leadership. Check out the districts more recent scores and the VT department of ed.

We are truly blessed with such a cultural diverse and student leadership directed atmosphere. Castleton is constantly upgrading to the next technological phase in education, obtaining any equipment needed to keep our kids on the cutting edge. The staff and environment they create is one of trust, encouragement, and understanding

We have found the Village School to be a wonderful place for our son. These have been the best two years of his schooling so far. The teachers are very approachable and seem to genuinely care about the children. We have been very happy with our experience.

The seventh and eighth graders have a great expirience in the Castleton Village School. The sports program is great and the teachers are nice. They treat you like kids come first and thats how a school should be. The school enviorment is clean and safe for all students and staff. I feel lucky to go to a school like this!

About the tests

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.
