The Addison Central School District
(ACSD) serves 1,650 students from Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham, and Weybridge from preschool through twelfth grade. ACSD is a certified International Baccalaureate (IB) World School District which offers the IB PreK-12 continuum of Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programs. The coordinated curriculum provides proficiency-based learning and assessment, consistency and equity in student instruction throughout the district.
Our seven elementary schools come together in 6th grade at Middlebury Union Middle School (MUMS) and continue to Middlebury Union High School (MUHS). The district is proud to provide its elementary students with a week of outdoor learning at the local Keewaydin Environmental Education Center, and the culmination of the IB Middle Years program incorporates student research and reflection into an independent passion project. ACSD also cultivates critical thinking in its students by requiring completion of Theory of Knowledge for graduation, a course that challenges students to examine what they know and how they know it. In addition to the IB Diploma Program, students at MUHS have the opportunity to access a diversity of technical programs at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center, which shares a campus with MUHS. The high school also offers an array of flexible pathways to graduation for students through Vermont’s Dual Enrollment Program, Early College, and Virtual High School.
ACSD supports a wide range of extracurricular activities in its schools, including band and choir in its elementary schools, and sports, band, choir, art, theater, student council, as well as a number of special interest, academic, and social justice/environmental service clubs in the middle and high schools.
