As a parent of a Junior who also attended Lamoille Union Middle School, I feel that LUHS is offering my daughter a wonderful experience. We moved from a town with a huge HS (3000) students, and the smaller size of LUHS (600 students) allows for greater personal interaction with the teachers and staff. there have been a lot of changes to the HS in the last 3 years to improve curriculum, attendance, and general "feel" of the school. My daughter maintains an A average while participating in band programs and student programs, and has been invited to apply for the National Honor Society. While it's true that a good student can do well in even a bad school, it's also true that a good school (such as LUHS) can greatly influence each student's contribution and effort to their own education. LUHS has really improved.

As a student currently at Lamoille union middle and high school i would rather go to Rice Memorial school. At the same time i wouldnt because of a few teachers. they make sure that you understand everything they teach. But it is very hard to get specialized time since there are so many students coming and going in and out of classrooms during study hall. The sports are good. Mainly girls soccer and guys lacrosse. Activities that are fun are lock- ins where you just hang out there with friends for about 9/8 hours, you can also play games watch movies and have a lot of fun. Some rules that i think have no reason is the no cleats inside, during soccer practice one day i got a bloody nose and had to go inside , i forgot about my cleats and got told off by a teacher about it. The ground are nice and kept very well. Some things we have is our garden and a pizza oven outside. We hqve winter carnivals, medic tournaments, ikidarods ( a.k.a. iditarod). Curriculum is quite easy for me and its fun, i was n honors/ high honors all year. Lums has high school laguage class ( latin, spanish, french) and algrbra.

I have had three children pass through the halls of Lamoille and, I have to say, during the 10 years of my experience with Lamoille there has been and unbelievable transformation in the competence, compassion and caliber of the teachers and administration. Every year, when I think it can t get any better, I am amazed at how much better the climate and program is. Thank-you Lamoille for being there for my children!

It amazes me at how many parents in this area actually believe the school is suppose to teach kids about manners and behavior. The school seems to spend more time dealing with troubled kids who disrupt class or get arrested for drugs. Takes away from the kids who actually want to be there. I can say that my kids went there for one year and because of the constant turmoil in the classrooms were pulled and sent to private schools instead. I do feel sorry for a lot of the good teachers at the school. If it were up to me most of the kids would not be allowed in there due to their disruptive behaviors.

As a graduate, I can say with confidence that neither of my children will ever attend this school. On a good note, English teachers Chris Pettit and Connie Marsh as well as science teacher Donald Craig made my days at LUHS bearable.

I work in the school as a para educator. I feel it is a very caring and supportive place to send children to learn. The atmosphere is a positive place to be in The children and adults are great to be around.

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.
