Having an Austic child, the school is very supportive, and involves the parents in decisions. Jen Gamach is the best!!! A very rewarding experience and they get an A+

I love CMS!!!! The Cougars are awesome! I rate it a 10/10 because it's perfect! You have many freindly people and everyone should go to CMS!!!

As a middle school, CMS is pretty good. It's not perfect, and there are loads of things that CMS could do so much better in, but it's not bad.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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. 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.
