    Overall Experience: I would choose this school again due to the teachers and the community. Everyone is very engaged and has a role in some part of the school and making it a better place.

    Teachers: These teachers go out of their way to connect with the students, but still ensure that the students are capable of creating a head start for their own future.

    Health & Safety: We are a little town in the middle of Vermont we are at no risk of anything so not much needs to be done.

    Extracurriculars: While I have never really participated in the extracurricular activities besides wrestling but the opportunities seem good.

    Overall Experience: It is very secluded from the active towns like Burlington, Essex, Williston or really just about any other town. While the level of education is great as are the outdoor athletic facilities travel time is a factor in why I'm not sure I'd come back. Plus with the abundance of other school that are much closer makes for a better mix of friends from other schools and better high school experience.
