Rutland senior high school is the best school there is. Their after school programs are amazing and the cheerleading squad and football team are the best in state.

Posted December 4, 2004

This high school has given my child the opportunity to grow tremendously both academically, socially, and musically. The integration of various programs allows for a diverse educational experience. The clubs are incredible and their advisors are so supportive. Mrs. McGurl, especially is an amazing person. The Jazz Program is superior, and the indoor and outdoor track teams are phenomenal. My son got a full ride scholarship to Duke. I think that tells you how well this high school prepares its students for the future.

This school is excellent with its outstanding programs and diversified students. My son attended RHS for three out of his four years and not once did I hear him complain about a single thing (other than the average dread of homework). His grades were above average and he was very grateful for the amount of different classes he was able to take.

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.
