Parent Testimony

Our family feels so fortunate to be a part of Vermont Commons School. It is the perfect fit for our son and we could not have found a more engaging learning environment and supportive community.

Every student quickly becomes part of this small community where learning is cool.  Older students interact with, encourage and set a stunning example for younger ones and together they participate and support one another in a program that is both academically rigorous and really caring.

The faculty and staff are genuinely passionate about the school, their subject matter and most importantly, our children.  At VCS there are no cracks to fall through and nowhere to hide.

The encounter weeks are an incredibly valuable component of the curriculum and something you won’t find elsewhere. E-weeks continually provide my son with tremendous opportunities to challenge himself and explore the world.

It’s truly remarkable to watch young VCS students grow and mature into responsible, intelligent, and compassionate young adults in such a wonderful community.

Scholarship. Community. Global Responsibility.

At Vermont Commons School, our goal is to engage students with their world. We achieve this through programs and a curriculum grounded in local and global involvement.
