While the performance of Vermont students in math and reading remained average for last year, results on standardized tests showed students held their own since 2009 testing, according to New England Common Assessment Program scores released last week.
Only Vermont high-school juniors showed slight improvement in math.
The assessment report identified several Vermont schools with improved 2010 over 2009 test scores:
Top-achieving elementary and middle schools in reading are Dover Elementary School, Glover Community School, Moretown Elementary School, Newark School, Pomfret School, Reading Elementary School and Stowe Middle and High Schools.
Top-achieveing elementary schools in math are Barnard Academy, Montgomery Elementary School, and Reading Elementary School. State officials noted that Montgomery had at least a 25 percent poverty rate in 2010 along with improving scores during a three-year period.
Both Mount Holly and Poultney elementary schools are in the top 14.
Top-achieving high schools in reading are Champlain Valley Union High School, Chelsea Public School, Mt. Mansfield Union School, and Middlebury Union High School.
Top-achieving high school junior classes in math were Champlain Valley, Colchester High School, Essex High School, and Stowe Middle and High Schools.
