BEWARE. I beg all parents to think twice before sending your child to this school. They misrepresented the culture and typical kids there. This is not a personal growth school for those on their way. The population was in much more trouble than... could handle. That puts your child at more risk for emotional turmoil and physical harm than it does help them. They were nonresponsive to my phone calls, my son s cries for help, and to formal advocacy. And they did nothing during his time there or after I rescued him from this place to make amends or acknowledge the physical violence, lies, property destruction, degradation, pain and suffering they allowed and caused.

The King George School is in my thoughts everyday and has been since I graduated. The staff was there to help me twenty four hours a day. My emotional needs, medical needs, and educational needs were met to the fullest extent. I got into a reputable college on scholarship with the help of KGS. I continue to visit friends I made while at KGS. Actually, I am with one now. KGS is my favorite place on earth and i urge families to send their children there. The cost is worth it if you want your child back in your life.

Waste of large sums of money and precious time. King George School continued to take our money, month after month, but did not provide any academic or therapeutic benefits. Too much staff turnover and too little supervision. There are much better emotional growth schools-please don't waste your money or your child's precious time.

The King George school saved our family. The staff went out of their way to help us and make our daughter feel whole again.She is now functioning well in college and misses KGS. We would not be where we are today if it weren't for the staff at KGS.She is in touch with many of her peers from KGS and they have a bond that will keep them close for a very long time.Our experience with KGS was very positive.

This is a school who professes to care about your child but in reality it does not.

The King George School is an extremely supportive place with great art classes as part of the curriculum with good academic standards as well. Emotional growth is supported through a variety of activities with trained staff. It is located in northern Vermont, very isolated and lovely. There are very small classes. Kids take only three traditional academic classes at a time. But the art classes incoporate academic skills too. (like research for an art history class)

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
