The best thing about Vermont Commons is that, because it is a smaller school, you get to know everybody and make friends with people in all of the grades. Everyone is really friendly and they all want to help you have a good time at VCS.
My favorite subject this year was Social Studies with Heather Moore. We learned all about the universe, from the Big Bang, to the future. It was great because throughout the year we covered so much and there was something for everybody. I personally loved learning about humans and collective learning. We all do a ton of fun hands-on projects which are great to improve your understanding of the material.
Next year I am looking forward to becoming better friends with people who I was not as close with this year. I am also excited for the Encounter Weeks as always, because they are super fun and you get to become good friends with people who you may not have known as well prior.
I like to hang out with my friends, play with my cats, read, write and take photographs.
Year at VCS
Next year will be my second year at Vermont Commons School and I’ll be in 9th grade.
I live in Warren, Vt.
