The staff at this school is overwhelmingly positive. They all appear to love what they do. The administration is appropriately responsive to any issues that arise. The kids look happy and self-confident. I am always impressed with how discipline is maintained without the heavy-handed punitive approach I have seen at other schools. The music programs are outstanding. The middle school teachers are great.

I am very happy with this school. Our son had a hard time adjusting to our move and the new school, and the many other things happening in out life. The teachers and professionals at this school were very helpful and made him feel welcome.

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.
