    The teachers at Mt. Abe are exemplary amazing wonderful and I can't say enough good things about them. They teach students to actually think rather than simply regurgitate the "right" answer. This is unique for a public school anywhere and why I am glad that I went to Mt. Abe. That being said the building is horrible as most VT school buildings are. Some classes are held in trailers; some teachers teach from carts. Too much money goes to athletics and not enough to textbooks (though the knowledge of the teachers does compensate for this). When I graduated in 2005 the administration was functioning TERRIBLY. A ridiculous lack of respect for students and teachers from the administration turned the school in a bad direction. Admin cut vital programs like the FISH room a counseling area where students could go for 15 minutes if they were struggling with personal issues. The FISH room was incredibly important to the academic success of many students including myself during a difficult time in their lives. The rating of the school may be misleading. It is largely based on standardized test scores which many students purposely botched to express their dislike for admin.

    As nice as Mount Abraham is with a large indoor pool and other academic plusses the administration has a lot of work to do. In the 05-06 school year things have gotten much better with the addition of a dean of students rather than a disciplinarian. The dean has a very nice outlook on things and believes if you treat the kids like adults they will treat everyone with greater respect. As far as I can see this year it is working violence is down as well as drug use and littering.

    Mt Abe has a lot to offer just not enough for the gifted students. I'll be moving to a different school that fits my needs. They have lovely indoor pool and planetarium. Parents are involved as much as they could be and there is a large issue with violence this year.
