Twin Valley is a great school. What the ratings tend to ignore is that Twin Valley fosters not specifically bright students, but good people. I went to Twin Valley back when it was Wilmington and ended up going to an Ivy League school. This isn't common, but certainly doable with a student that applies themself. What you will find at Twin Valley which is unique and amazing these days, is that cliques are few and far between, bullying is minimal, and character is high, because there are no cuts in sports, no restrictions on excelling, and great student teacher relationships. Just being able to be involved in the play, or a sport, when you otherwise might not be, not only allows a child to learn to be social in a group, but provides a support system. I would not have had this support, would have been bullied, and would have had trouble finding myself, if not for this very important and critical factor that aptitude tests and rating systems could care less about. If your child is already bright, and perhaps a little less social, as many bright kids tend to be, I think this school could be a great fit :)

As with any school, Twin Valley has work to do to become a great school. They are doing just that. Through consolidation they are moving to a more efficient system and improving the education of its students. It it not only the school that contributes to the education of its students, the parents need to be involved and supportive as well. I am happy with the education my children are receiving. Of course there is room for improvement but there is in every school. Parents need to become involved instead of sitting back and complaining!! I love that my kids know all of the teachers and support staff and they know my kids.

Okay, if the previous reviewer (a parent, apparently) is a product of this school, then it may indeed be an awful school.

This school is an awful education. Your better off sending your kid to Burr and Burton Academy.

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.
