Hartford School District


The Hartford School District in Vermont consists of 5 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. The district serves a predominantly white student population, with schools ranging from 88% to 92% white students. While the elementary schools generally outperform the state averages on assessments, the high school lags behind, with concerning declines in performance over the past few years.

The standout schools in the district are Ottauquechee School and Dothan Brook School, both of which rank among the top elementary schools in Vermont and earn 4 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger. These schools have strong test scores, particularly in English Language Arts, and relatively low free and reduced lunch rates. In contrast, Hartford High School has seen a concerning decline in its statewide ranking, with only 34% of 9th graders proficient or better in ELA, 30% in math, and 26% in science.

The district also shows a range of socioeconomic diversity, with free and reduced lunch rates varying from 18.72% at Ottauquechee School to 42.93% at White River School. This suggests potential differences in the challenges and needs of the student populations across the district, which may be reflected in the varying spending per student, ranging from $13,016 at Hartford Memorial Middle School to $17,540 at White River School.
