Posted October 11, 2009

this school has amazing teachers. it welcomes new comers, embraces the present students and welcomes old ones back for a visit. its more of a family then a school. i was sad to leave it in 6th grade. i had a lot of happy childhood memories there, the school laid the foundaton for who i am today. it deserves a reward to help keep this wonderful school going!!!!

My daughter just started attending this school, and I have become impressed with the personal attention given to the students. Mrs. Green runs an amazing program and Cathy Link as well with the teaching and support of the arts. The most important aspect of the school is that they intergrade art, library, gym, music' specials' with the curriculum. So important!

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.
