Our Community

09112015-VCS-JuliaLuckettPhotography-73At Vermont Commons School we gather every morning to share stories and remind ourselves why community is valued. Students learn with faculty, and faculty learn with students. Parents, board members, and alumni are also engaged and valued as important members of our community.


Students gather at Vermont Commons School each day amidst a community of friends. Teachers and students are actively involved in meaningful ways, supporting one another both in and outside of the classroom. See our featured Students


Vermont Commons School parents see their children grow intellectually, develop self-confidence, experience their world directly, and become part of a vibrant and caring community. From orientation through graduation, we invite you to bring your own wisdom, leadership, expectations, and energy to this community. See our featured Parents


Vermont Commons School challenges students daily with interdisciplinary curriculum taught by dedicated faculty who empower students to feel a sense of place and how it relates to the larger environment. The small class size offers personalized attention and allows for meaningful relationships between teachers and students. See our Faculty
