This is a great school! New Principal who is really involved with all the students and parents. Any concerns are quickly reported to parents and the children are respectable. There are bullies everywhere, but I havent seen any here. The teachers are excellent and give far more than expected of their time and really care about the students they teach. We love MBS!!!!!

Haven't seen much change at this school. Two principals in 3 years. The teachers need to communicate more with parents, and the principal needs to get more involved. The assistant principal does more than the principal-guess that just another form of politics.Special needs children are just that and need more attention...Much bulling in the school also, from boys and girls!!!


Posted December 25, 2008

The teachers were for the most part ok, at times they seemed unfair and not to listen even though students brought up many valid points for discussion. The school is nice though and the overall experience was enjoyable.

My child has special needs and the school has been great in working with him. L Waters is not the principal any longer.....

Our experience of MBS has been mixed. The teachers are terrific...top notch. But the principal (L. Waters) leaves ever so much to be desired.

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.
