Posted April 17, 2014

I am currently a Freshman at North Country. And I tell it has only a few perks to it and that's it. This school has so much drama. And unless your a redneck or a Popular kid good luck fitting in. Im neither of these and its really hard. The only perk to the school is some of the staff is nice. A great principal! A great guidance dept. And a great couple of nurses we have. THATS IT. I dislike this school and am looking into other options for next year.

My son is having a great freshman school year and we are pleased with the academics at North Country. I do have concerns about safety and some disrespectful behavior of students to staff. Some solutions/programs to that end would be appreciated and needed I feel.

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.
