    Many of the teachers are great. The principal lacks leadership skills and appears to be phoning it in. Her main trick is smiling a lot while nodding her head while repeating jargon. We're wishing for a new principal who is inspired intelligent and creative.

    Champlain is a wonderful neighborhood school supporting the larger community of Burlington. It's a great school but needs help as all schools do these days thanks to some misguided Americans' great desire to spend money on bombs and tax cuts instead of education.

    This school embodies balance - balance in population balance in teaching styles in the building and balance of energetic and peaceful climate. Nancy Z's strong leadership has really produced a well-functioning community where teachers parents and most importantly students can be proud of our school.
