Posted May 20, 2010

Green Mountain Union High School has a 7th - 8th grade middle school. I would not recommend this school for kids who are intellectually advanced or sensitive in any way. The administration enables teachers to avoid good classroom management by allowing them to send kids from the classroom without just cause. The discipline approach is punitive and harsh. Teachers have very little understanding of adolescent development and the kids suffer for it. They keep talking about improvement but there is little evidence of it so far.

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.
