Posted March 11, 2010

Overall, I have been unimpressed by the communication skills of the staff. Unless my child is in crisis, I don't get much feedback. Also, because of my low socio-economic status, I am generally treated as an inferior who is unable to understand school policies & apparently don't care about my child because I am unable to participate in school activities that other parents flock to. I am genuinely concerned about where public education is going. But I am at a loss as to what to do about it, because I do not feel accepted as an equal.

This school has some great teachers but they are getting burned out by the constant overload placed upon them. Some teachers have fun classrooms and integrate students with handicaps well and other are terrible in this regard. There is a great lack of leadership and the principal is unavailable to parents or teachers, out of the building a lot.

We loved this school! We moved out of state and really miss the caring nurturing environment that HES provides for ALL students. Gifted students as well as struggling ones are given the opprotunity to thrive, create and be themselves. Bullying is swiftly dealt with and not allowed to 'wait it out' nor is do victim blaming tactics come into play. Low scores or not, this is truly a wonderful place for your kids to go.

Granted, I teach here, so I am a bit biased, but this is truly the best school I have ever taught at. It is riddled with technology, has teachers that truly care and work very hard for their students and the principal is fantastic. My only complaint is that there tends to a trend to be resistant to change - 'It's always been done this way.' Change is slow in Hardwick! Even though we are in a rural, rather economically depressed area, I am able to get what I need, including community support. Kids with needs are well take care of at this school. I love it!

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.
