I was extremely impressed with our son's educational experience at South Burlington High School! He was well prepared for college as the school had a wide array of AP classes he took advantage of. The teachers were supportive and talented.

I will be graduating from SBHS this June, and I have loved my four years here. The teachers are outstanding, the opportunities are nearly endless, and the community within our school is incomparable. Also, the guidance department does an amazing job when it comes to helping students with their future plans after high school!

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.
