We are new to the VT area from the Midwest so my son has only been at HMMS for 1 month. Thus far, I have no complaints. My son's second grade teacher calls me for the good, bad, and the ugly. She doesn't let him cry his way out of classwork so I appreciate that. This school is rated higher on Great Schools than my son's previous school and I think he is meeting the challenge. He is the only Afro-Amer student in his class and only of maybe 5 in the entire building but the saying that children are color-blind has been accurate thus far. Thus far, I approve of the school but plan to write another review in a few months time.

My daughter shared with her class about our vacation. The weather was terrible but we went anyway being a prepaid vacation. Her teacher; IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE CLASS said she was LYING. She suffered the rest of the day with children teasing her and name calling. I approached her teacher the very following morning. She did ADMIT to her actions. She was fast to inform me that my daughter often lied during sharing time. She apologized to me and said she would let me know how she would correct the problem. I didn t receive anything from the teacher until after I reported the incident to the principle. The principle didn t respond but the teacher did. Her response email was very short and crud. Regardless if she believed her or not, the teachers actions are unacceptable. Due to this public humiliation, my daughter has isolated herself at home. Spending most of her time voluntarily in her room. I personally would not tolerate being public humiliated by a stranger, why should the teacher of my child whom is suppose to mold my child be any different? Being a parent, I should always be reported of all repeating instances of misbehavior at an early stage rather than as a last resort.

AWESOME school. We are so greatful that our daughter was able to attend DBS form 1st-3rd grade. The staff is amazing, right down to the office gals. They always know who you are, espcially during the 1x a week 'mom I forgot my lunch' days! Our daughter needed special speech services and the entire speech team made her feel so welcome. Never once did she feel like an outcast. And her teachers were so very understanding of her needs and helping coax her gently out of her shell. DBS will be sadly missed in our up coming move and we can only hope to find a school half as great as DBS! We will all miss you DBS folks:(

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.
