I attened this school for two years before moving away. The teachers change lives and the community provides excellent support. Everyone is busting with school spirit and the students are all excited to learn.

CVU has exceeded our expectations academically, socially and through extra curriculums. Both our kids took AP classes. One scored all 5s on the exams; the other will be taking them soon. Teachers are very helpful and encouraging, available by phone and email. The entire staff cares about students and want everyone to do well and be successful. Both were involved in the arts and have many friends involved in sports. Both also had opportunities to travel to other countries with their teachers. Excellent school, families, and teachers and administrators.

This is a terrible school. I would never have a child go here EVER again. 1st the teachers provide no support for students what so ever. 2nd, they guidance department does not actually care about the students success, they don't listen to parents or the children. Just the stupid recommendations from teachers. 3rd the social atmosphere is terrible. I had to pull my child out of CVU and put them in MMU (No financial support was given). My child was bullied until he had to switch schools and go depression therapy. I would recommend this school to no one.

This is an excellent school. The kids are very friendly and they make everyone feel welcomed. The guidance department and teachers are wonderful and nice. They are hard working people and they care about every student.

Vermont's second largest school, this is a school nestled in Hinesburg, outside Burlington. It serves five different communities, and has really established itself as an athletic powerhouse, and one of Vermont's top schools academically. If I am not mistaken, the average ACT score for a CVU student is a 24 (5 points above the National average). The principal is actively involved with the school. He is never nestled inside his office, but he is out, walking around the halls, and will even eat lunch in the cafeteria. Athletically, CVU competes in division I for every sport (except football, but that will change in just under two years). Men's soccer has established themselves as the top team in Vermont, one of the top in New England, and sometimes are even found ranked nationally. The girls team has established themselves as a top team in Vermont as well. Safety is not a concern here.

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.
