We have a extremely talented, dedicated Art teacher, Jane Abraham. She shares her love of art with all willing students, despite a limited budget.

As a sophomore at Missisquoi Valley Union, I must say I am deeply saddened by the way a majority of MVU parents view the school of which I am a proud student. The problem with MVU is not the staff. It's not the curriculum. The parents of MVU students are a cancer to the academic success of their children. Countless parents complain about the way MIssisquoi is operated but few take the initiative to do anything about it. MVU is a great school. I've been here for three years and have had only one teacher that did not actuall have control over her class. It's not the norm. The way the classrooms are set up, if you want to learn, you'll learn. You'll get out of it as much as you put in. If your child struggles, I have a hard time believing its the school's fault.

This school is failing our kids. If the market were better I would sell my house. this is how strongly I feel about not sending my kids there. They will be in 7th grade this school year (2008-2009) and all I think about is how I'm going to make sure I support them until we are out of this district. Have many parents have actually gone to observe your children in school? Do it..you will be shocked at how little control the teachers have over these classrooms, I was! We need to change this system, unfortunately, I am not going to be here long enough to help with this crusade.

My son is a first year middle school student. I feel that he is finally getting a quality education, which except for 2 grades at the elementary level,I feel he did not get. His teachers so far have been very forthright in giving us feedback as to his progress, behaviors etc. I am looking forward to him growing and getting a good education at MVU, to help him in his quest for a higher education at the next level. I coach at the middle school level, and I see about 40 kids, of various skill levels. I try to reiterate to them that education comes first, and I believe this is also the message they're getting for their teachers. MVU has come a long way from where it use to be, and I look forward to its continued growth. Parents need to be part of the solution as well, helping at home with homework, etc.

I do not feel that parents are encouraged, enough, to be involved in their children's growth. I do not feel that M.V.U. provides quality feedback, positive and negative, to the parents of the students who attend their school. I feel that quality staff and administrators have been pushed out of the school, leaving the students with a disadvantage to higher education, as well as a disadvantage to the students who fall behind. The available programs like art, music, sports have always been consistent, yet debatable as to whether they offer enough of a variety to appeal to the students who are not the 'soccer player or drama' type. I understand their concern with the size of the school being a restraint in offering too much could take away from the current programs enrollment, ie. football taking away from current sports interest.

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.
