This school has not met my expectations at all. My child attended until we put her into another school last year. She was in the 5 th grade but at a 3 rd grade level. Since she has left she is now up to her grade level. The school did not care about our concerns or her education.

This school has been in a period of change for the last year. As a newly formed grade 3-5 school, the teachers are striving to create an educational setting that prepares children for the transition to middle school. New programs offer focused after school tutoring, drama, Girls on the Run, and opportunitites to volunteer in the community.

Union Street is an excellent elementary school. The teacher's work hard inspite of the last few years issues with construction right outside their windows and doors. The true test of a teacher is their students responses. I have viewed excitement, cooperation, responsibility and empathy in each and every classroom. Learning is daily, adventures are at every turn and I have never seen such a positive and kind team of educators. Our children are fortunate to attend Union Street.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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. As a result, GreatSchools' ratings for Vermont currently reflect 2012-13 test results, the most recent year with data for all subjects.

2013-14 state-level results are not available for the Vermont NECAP; please see here for more information.

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.
