Love this school. My daughter has gone here for the 3 years. She has developed so much in her reading. She went from knowing basic sight words to readying at 3rd grade level because the teachers go above and beyond. My son in just 6 months went from writing his name with odd looking letters to actually writing the letters with making them look like normal letters. They sent me home papers with the lines to teach him better with. The teachers are friendly. The principal knows each and every student by first and last name and can tell you what grade they are in with a few short seconds. I have never meet a principal like that. I wish my children were able to advance with the teachers each year!

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.
