Being a former student at Windsor High I've come to realize what this school is really like. Community wise, everyone is welcoming, social, friendly, and easy going with one another. Education wise, this school is a joke. Teachers have zero boundaries or a say in how the students act; they get "run over" by the students. Principal wise, I can't even count how many principals we've had and how they say they will change the test scores and make Windsor a better school, yet nothing as changed. Athletic wise, this is a great school. I was a three season athlete and loved every second of sports season. The teams are hard working and dedicated to win and try their hardest. Overall, yes your son/daughter will have a great experience at Windsor High School, but in the long wrong how much will this school benefit them when it comes to being accepted to colleges? And by colleges I do not mean the typical River Valley or the Community College in Claremont, NH. Most students don't have the drive to go far nor do they have anyone around to motivate or push them.

This is one of the worst schools in the State. There is no leadership. I don't feel my children are safe in this school because of total lack of discipline.

Both of my girls went through the Windsor High School system and they finished in the top 10 of their classes. Very civic minded school, emphasising scholastics, community envolvement & volunteerism. The teachers were motivated & award winning! I couldn't have asked for more!

Windsor High School has many fine qualities at heart, but their unwinllingness to commit to hard decisions and actions greatly hinders it's ability to further it's success. The school's leaders would much rather talk about the ball game Windsor just won than about the its exigent drug usage problems. Windsor does not address issues by trying to remedy their core causes. Instead Windsor spends a lot of time--and even money in some cases--trying to wipe away symptoms of a problem. Windsor's teachers are great; there is no denying that. However, underlying maladies often overshadow the teachers' impressive abilities. Change in the administration's lower levels has left the school in an even sadder state of affairs. With stories about cafateria ladies and so forth, Windsor's pick for principal has not brought the school where it wanted to go. With an atmosphere comparible to prison, Windsor can have a mediocre rating at best.

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.
