Posted January 8, 2014

I went to 5 high schools. By the time I got to TA I was just thrilled to be at a smaller school. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the lack of cliques in my grade. I was an 07 graduate and very rarely had an issue with a fellow classmate. The staff was all caring and understanding. It was a nice breath of fresh air after attending a clique-y school in a neighboring college town (you know the one). Students and staff alike were generally nicer and more down-to-earth. I would definitely rather send my children here than the aforementioned school that shall remain nameless.

As a parent with 24 years of experience working in the field of education, I can honestly say that both my children received excellent educations at Thetford Academy. Both were fully prepared for life after high school and have been accepted to and succeeded (or are succeeding) in very competitive colleges. One of the biggest selling points of TA is its small class size which gives the faculty and staff the ability to teach in a caring family atmosphere.

My four children attended Thetford Academy. It is a wonderful and caring school!

I was a student at TA. I found the school to be one of the best I ever attended. Because of the size, the school was like a family. There was no evidence of real 'cliques' although people did have their own little groups of friends... it was not unusual to bounce around between groups. I never witnessed any nastiness by students and the teachers were all wonderful.

Thetford Acadamy has been a huge disappointment in my child's education. The education is borderline, and there are barely any extracurricular activities for your child to engage in.

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.
