I love the small close knit community that NSS offers. The teachers are amazing and the curriculum focuses on what kids need to know rather than teaching to the test which is too prevalent in our society today.

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.
