This school does its best to cater to the modern day challenges of its' diverse population. Our family has witnessed first hand how the staff, and administration, alter their approach, specifically relating to the implementation of curriculum to accommodate all of their students. The teachers hold to their standards while adjusting, when needed, to the needs of the children. Utilizing modern educational techniques, and resources, these dedicated teachers are providing this population with a proper foundation from which to grow. An added bonus is the parental support that is evident at various after school programs, and special activities. It truly is a village school. Kudos!

Pre-K program needs huge improvements. Pre-K teacher is inattentive to individual needs, and seem to be out of touch with the age group in itself. Very poor communication as well. The rest of the school/grades are excellent and I am very pleased otherwise with OQS. If you have a child that is planning to attend the Pre-K you better hope the current teacher retires this year.

Both of my daughters have had excellent experiences at OQS. Responsive teachers, positive and supportive principal, great programs including: garden club, outdoor club, girls on the run and band. My children are happy to go to school every day.

Not the school for kids on the Autism Spectrum or ADHD. They do not have adequate resources to learn behavioral management skills needed for these types of students. Their policy is proactive management; however, my child was the victim of reactive discipline, spending much time in the principal's office for behavior he could not control. The result was an increase in disruptive, defiant behavior at home and at school. It is a great school for students that do not exhibit challenging behavior; however, the children exposed to this constant disruption often miss out on the curriculum. So in a nut shell, it is not adequate behavioral management for all students.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this school. We moved from out of state with our child who was vaguely classified special ed. The teachers and administration have gone above and beyond to make us welcome and help our son.

Ottauquechee School is a great elementary school. The dedication of the staff to educating each and every child is first class. I have had 4 children at this school at all levels of the spectrum and every one has been catered for as an individual. There is no 'gifted and talented' program but most teachers at this school certain cater for those students he need more challenges. The special education team is also very good at managing a child with learning disabilities. In addition each child gets gym, art and music. (The music program is unbelievably good here) With the option of band and chorus in 5th grade. There is also a very support PTO who do a wonderful job in raising additional funds to support the good. I highly recommend this school!

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.
