Teachers and staff are top shelf. New principal for the 2011-12 year. Reserve judgment for school administrator. After-school program is excellent. Athletics are good, but I'm not a big advocate for co-ed soccer teams. Guidance (Woody Brown) and library staff are excellent. My children all have had extraordinary teachers. My kids did very well on NECAP tests. School have high free and reduce lunch population and still manage to help most students pass NECAP.

Although according to test reviews, the Wolcott school scored a 4, I want to go on recors for saying that the Wolcott Elementary school is an excellent school where kids come first. The caring staff at this school works hard to get to know every child and make sure that his or her needs are meet educationally, sociallt, and emetionally. Ilove this school.

This school is great. Not only are you in a welcoming community, but because of the closer student-teacher relationships the students can be pushed to strive for academic excellence! The After-school program at this school is great as well. Love to read with your kids but are bored with the books at home? Wolcott definitly has a cozy library with a growing collection of books checked out to you by the best librarian ever! Great opinons all around!

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.
