My child attended kindergarten at the school. I love the natural playground for recess, the school building is large, clean and inviting and the staff are friendly. I am hoping for a better year next year, as we've had problems with some classmates bullying my child and Disney movies been show in the kindergarten and preschool rooms. I'm hoping it is just this teacher and next year will be better.

I have 2 four year old children in the pre-K program. I have been extremely happy with the school & the teachers. The Children's Room, which is a room dedicated to pre-school children is a wonderful resourse. The school in conjuntion with the the Children's Room offers Pizza playdates and parties in the gym monthly, the school opens up the gym most days for pre-school kids to run around and play and many school events invite the pre-school kids to join in with the activities.

I have had children enrolled in the pre-K programs and I'm very happy with the schedule care and attention that our children are getting. The school seems small and personal from the principal to the people at the desk. A huge plus with the TBS is the childrens room which is a dedicated room for pre-school children to play and learn...there is a coordinator there apx. 20 hours per week to facilite the room and all the school/community activities.

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.
