Posted October 1, 2012

The bullying is rampant and goes unpunished and unreported despite multiple complaints to Guidance and Principal. This school claimed zero incidences of bullying after paying for multiple children, including mine, to transfer to other school districts because of bullying. The change had to be demanded by parents as the school did not respond to the bullying issue.

This is a great school. The faculty and staff are supportive and encouraging. They have a very wide variety of courses that are offered to cater to each child's likes and dislikes.

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.
