Unfortunately, the Winooski School District has never been able to come out of a rut since we moved here 25 years ago. Teachers are unable or unwilling to accommodate for their students and are very overwhelmed. The only benefit was being able to have school choice with Essex Technical Center.

I love it because my son loves it. He is very happy there. Great school with very caring teachers.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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. 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.
