We absolutely loved it. Mrs. Dammer, the principal, is so close with all of the students and parents. There is a real sense of community and school spirit. My daughter LOVED her 2 years there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11.
