PA is a great high school. Principle and administration are all rude, arrogant, and seeminly unconcerned with what the student body wants. Theres some great teachers at Peoples, however lately the administration has been forcing the most well-liked teachers out of the school. Athletic programs are outstanding and dominant every year.

The teachers and staff are committed and passionate. They work collaboratively to provide rich and challenging curriculum. Students are engaged and strive to reach and exceed high expecations. The classes are small and support individualized learning. The school offers multiple pathways to graduation and graduates expereince success in college and the workplace. Extracurricular activites are a strong component to school life and the soccer program is among the best in the state. As a community member, I am happy with the focus and vision of this school.

Morristown School District has outstanding community involvement within the school. The teachers are well educated and down to earth. They understand children and how to teach them so that they understand and learn. You will only get out of any education exactly the effort the students and parents put into the education! We have an amazing group of teachers and students and I am proud to send my children here.

Excellent school! My child was well prepared for college and had many opportunites to develop leadership skills.

This school is certainly not the best place to send your kid.. The two biggest flaws in this school though are definitely the discipline system and of course the mentally gifted program. Not enough kids are mentally gifted for them to spend much money on it. There are a lot of fights too.

I am embarrassed to say that I have attended this school. This is the worst school I have ever been to. There are many drug related problems and bullying. Also, the community itself is awful, very boring, small town with many troublesome kids. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

This school is absolutely awful! All of the students are very rude, and do not care about their grades. There is a lot of negative peer pressure and it is very hard to find a good group of friends. The teachers don't seem to notice bad behavior either and intelligent kids are grouped with less intelligent kids.

Absolutely terrible school. I attended this high school myself and can tell you it was the worst 4 years of my life. The students are down right disrespectful and the teachers do nothing to stop it. You can easily pass by doing minimal work. Yes that seems like a good thing to pass easily but not really since the students don't get a good education. This school has a lot of drug related problems also. They really need to check the backgrounds of the teachers a lot better. I feel ashamed to say I went to this joke of a "school".

One of the better high schools in Vermont. Lots of technology available for students use. Limited but strong technology program (only one tech. teacher, but he's good). Teachers are good. Strong athletic programs. Seem to always have budget issues. Cut several positions due to budget. New principal.

I like the atmosphere and think that the new principle is a great addition and give the school more life.

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.
