U-32 High School Reviews

Though a small rural public school, U-32 has many opportunities in athletics, arts, and community based learning. The theatre program is absolutely fabulous and puts of professional scale productions despite limited resources. The teachers and academics are great, too! Especially English, Social Studies and French departments. The school had stuck together through a few tragedies in the community and it is a tight-knit place. The school is going through a bumpy transition to proficiency-based grading that isn't benefitting students or preparing them for college. Also, the administrators are more concerned with protocol than the best interests of the students. Students find themselves involved with endless bureaucracy trying to advocate for themselves and make positive changes in the school. Overall, good academics and a thriving art and theatre department make this high school experience exceptional.

My experience at U-32 was very good. From a very early age I was challenged with a learning style that was different than that of a traditional student. I learn best through experiential education. A change I would love to see would be for experiential/Technical education to become a more viable option for students at a much earlier age. It would be ideal if those options were available at the home campus as well. Each day I traveled to my home high school then needed to travel to the technical school and then back again to my home high school. Over a years time that equates to a lot of learning time lost.
U-32 has been great! I have been very fortunate to have great teachers at both U-32 and Central Vermont Career Center!
I liked that our class was small and we all knew each other. We all got along pretty well and we always had fun. One thing I would improve about U-32 if I could, would be student involvement. We have many sports but the stands are often left empty. We also have different clubs but not many students sign up for them.
