Wonderfully nurturing school. Very clean and safe. Teachers who care. Great for someone looking for a small, orderly school in a nice facility. Definately room for parental involvement but not pressured to do so.

This school is great The principle, Mr West is awsome and is bringing new ideas and stuff to bring the school to the forefront. This school does not get the credit it deserves

I am not impressed by anything at this school to date. I feel so out of touch with my childs education. We moved to Pittsford at the end of Dec. and came from a school that was amazing. The teachers were there because they cared and enjoy working with children and parents. You felt like you were part of a team and everyone looked out for everyones children. Children and parents had access to teachers at home any time and any day of the week for anything that needed to be discussed. Maybe we have been spoiled or maybe we are the new kids on the block and thats why we feel so shut out. I have made phone calls to many staff members to set up meetings and have never received a phone call back. I really do not feel as though my child is safe. I HATE THIS SCHOOL!

It is a great school. My son struggles with academics and the support system that they have offered me has been very helpful. It is comforting to know that being such a small, they are able to offer the kind of resources that some of the city schools don't have. My son is excelling in everything thanks to all of the wonderful staff.

The academics are wonderful, but beware. Once a child is labeled, either good or bad, it is stuck with them at this school. I have seen teacher favoring at this school for years. I sincerely hope all this changes with the 2007-2008 school year and the new principal.

While the academic programs, music and art are all great at this school I feel that the favoritism that happens is not good. The children get labeled very quickly. Our child has done very well academically and loves music and art, but I don t think that is enough. A child should not come home and feel that they were treated unfairly compared to any other student. Ask questions, check out the teachers. Make sure your child is placed where they will grown and learn the best.

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.
