The Northern Mountain Valley Unified Union School District #85 in Vermont is home to 4 elementary schools serving students from the surrounding communities. The schools range in size from 144 to 335 students and have predominantly white student populations. While the district has some high-performing schools, there are also significant disparities in academic achievement across the schools.

Montgomery Elementary School stands out as the top-performing school in the district, consistently ranking among the top 10 elementary schools in Vermont and earning a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school excels academically, with significantly higher proficiency rates than the state averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. In contrast, Bakersfield School appears to be the lowest-performing school, with a 0-star rating and proficiency rates well below the state averages in all subject areas.

The data suggests a potential relationship between socioeconomic status and academic performance, as the schools with higher free/reduced lunch rates, such as Berkshire Elementary School and Bakersfield School, tend to have lower proficiency rates. Additionally, the fluctuating performance of some schools, like Sheldon Elementary School, highlights the importance of continuous improvement and the potential for collaboration and resource sharing within the Northern Mountain Valley Unified Union School District #85.
