BBA has an amazing community and a diverse wealth of extra-curricular options for anyone. The theater program is amazing and there are some phenomenal teachers here who really care about their students and the school itself. The school has a huge range of students because while it is simultaneously a premier private academy, it is a public high school for the small populace of local students in its close proximity - basically, no matter who you are, you'll be able to fit in and consider it your second home.

I wouldn't have wanted to attend high school anywhere else. Everything about BBA is absolutely fabulous. It's been three years since I graduated, and I still find myself longing for those old high school days.

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.
