Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The knock on NW school is its test scores, which are lower because the population the school serves is less academically oriented (more low income families, etc.). But listen. The leadership at NW school is fabulous, the classes are small, the teachers are caring and highly qualified, and kids get the attention they need whether that means extra help because of being behind or being ahead. Is there tons of extra support? Of course not, this is Vermont. More parental involvement would be a help to this school, but again a large percentage of the parents don't fit the profile of parents who are actively engaged in their kids education. We believe NW is a great school that is serving our kids very well. They LOVE going to school, feel loved and challenged by their teachers, and feel a sense of belonging that one can't put a price on.

It's disappointing that the test scores represent this school not in the best light. We have had a wonderful experience here with top notch educators. Northwest School is Rutland's best kept secret!!

I'm a parent and I only have wonderful things to say about the school. My child is challenged academically and is exposed to a variety of subjects. Teh teachers and administration are engaged and show a genuine interest in my child's growth.
