Outstanding small school with involved and caring faculty staff and parents. Having graduated one child from Folsom after two years and with two to go I can say with confidence that moving to this welcoming town was a great decision. The faculty and leadership are constantly striving to find the best mix of programs and education delivery methods for our children. Extra-curricular activities are plentiful with many students taking part in chorus band lego club soccer basketball school plays etc. One key thing that makes this school work so well is the openness of the faculty and leadership to accept criticisms and concerns and to act upon them to ensure all students receive the best opportunity for learning possible. Kudos to the Folsom community for making this school such a wonderful place for learning and growth!

We are so sad to be leaving this little gem of a school. Our girls have had excellent experiences here and have received great educations. It is quite amazing that such a small school can provide so much (music art french sports theater etc). The teachers and staff have been attentive innovative and professional. I Highly recommend it for all those who struggle to those who excel academically.
Without a doubt the very best school any of our five children ever attended in three different states through the years. Our daughter thrived in this wonderful community school and the enriched curriculum (French art computer music and theater) were nothing short of fabulous even in a small school! If you are seeking a community this is the school to select worth moving here just for the school. Teachers are experienced dedicated and accept individuality.
Starting out with an excellent K-teacher has given my kids the academic boost and love of school that they still carry with them today. The teachers and special educators take a personal interest in the success of every student no matter what their abilities or disabilites are. Folsom has been right on track with my special needs children as well as providing a save nurturing environment for all of my kids. In Vermont we say that the state helps to raise the child. Folsom goes one better with the school helping to raise the child.
