We could not have dreamed of a more supportive environment for our children to experience in an elementary school setting. From a very competent, approachable and responsive principal (past and present), cheerful and proactive staff, outstanding, selfless and genuine teachers, and simply jaw-dropping parent involvement we are living the ideal elementary school experience.

This is one of the best schools in the nation as evidenced by it's selection last year as a national 'Blue Ribbon' school for outstanding academic achievement. Having had my son attend a school in upstate New York for a couple of years, I was pleasantly surprised to see the standards and expectations here much higher. The general tone of school functions and events also suggests that the school values discipline and decency on the part of their student body. The Principal is charming and shows great concern for the School, the parents, and , of course, the children.

In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11. The MCA-II is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
