Danville School has the potential of being a great school as changes are currently taking place. There is a lack of discipline because teachers have not been supported by the current high school principal. A new administration has been put in place for next year and I see that as an excellent start. Holding teachers and students accountable is what this school needs. This school has excellent support by the community. As changes are made to the curriculum and method of teaching, I see Danville becoming a 5 in the next few years.
Danville School is an outstanding Pre K- 12 grade school. My children will have had 15 years of a consistent schooling experience. This school keeps up with the changing times in education, and it is expected that every child will learn. The staff is engaging in coursework to keep current with technology, teaching strategies, and curriculum development. They are very fortunate to have a new principal who is leading the school in a forward direction.
This school is known in the Northeast Kingdom for being a top-rated school. The staff are very pleasant and the facility is up to par with that of a much more populated area school. We previously were in a more surburban area and this school is just as good - if not better due to the closer community.
Teachers are well-educated and caring. School has many extra curricular activities and events. People choose to live in Danville specifically to send their children to this school. Basically, your child will get a wonderful education in a safe, rural setting.
I disagree with the above review. This is a great small school. The Danville School sends graduates to some of the best private and public colleges in the country. Transportation to AP and Votech classes is provided by the school if requested. AP classes are now taught by staff in person. The other rating sounds like a disgruntled parent.
This is a good basic rural school district that tries to do the best it can with the monies provided by the local taxpayers and the state. High School - The AP courses are on a video cassette in an independent study situation. Some of the advanced high school students go to a nearby state college for courses, but the student needs to provide his/her own transportation. Vocational courses are offered at a nearby vocational center, and the student really needs to get there by own transportation. The elementary school is excellent, the middle level is not as good as it could be. Algebra is not offered to middle school students as of this writing. Discipline is an issue as we get some tuition students who have been allowed to withdraw from other districts rather than be expelled. The community is very supportive, friendly and caring.
