This school has everything a stedent needs and more. The theater is amazing (wireless headsets, great sound system, comfortable seats) the grounds are kept nicely, new soccer field, etc... Central location, also it is right near the glacial lakes trail, the kids simply cross the road and can run track on the trail. Wonderful teachers, and a community that cares enough to sink loads of money into it, this is a great school.


Posted June 12, 2005

we have a great school. even though there are problems, a lot of fighting our principals take care of that. of the school year 2004-2005 there were about 8 - 10 serious fights. but we can work on that. this school has a great environment. teachers are cool and easy to joke around with. Great school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II Graduation-Required Assessments for Diploma (MCA-II/GRAD) to test students in grade 9 in writing and 11 in math. The MCA-II/GRAD is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. Students must pass the MCA-II/GRAD in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
