Sorry about the typing errors. I went to Princeton. Regardless. The school is of very poor quality.


Posted April 20, 2010

Has great school spirit, great support staff for the kids, and a positive environment for learning
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 5, 2007

PMS has great communication with parents! I do not have to wait to get teacher feedback, they are involved, and seem to care about the kids! Two of my three children have spent their middle school years at PMS and it has been great. They have sports and academic extracurricular activities and encourage the kids to be part of them regardless of strengths or weaknesses unlike some schools that only want you on the team if you are going to win. We are very happy with the school district with the exception of the high school which is so-so. The enrolled students are increasing much much much faster than the district has money to keep up with though!

About the tests


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.
