Bismarck was once one of the great schools in the area but now they are trying to hard to get those great scores and the students education is suffering for it. They start pushing preparation for the yearly test almost as soon as the children return from christmas vacation. For the ones of you who do not know this preparation is only covering what the tests may contain for each grade the students then only go over this material for the next few weeks even if the students do not need to study this and would like to finish the year by learning something more useful. If a student is not scoring the scores they want then they try to say that that child is mentally hadicapped just so that they can score them on a different test. I know that a lot of the schools will try this to but then there will be many children left behind and i do not think that was the intention of the act that they are working so hard to please had in mind when it was being written.

There are no better schools in America than Bismarck. I worked in the High School office for 2 years until ministry work moved me out of state. My children never stop wanting to go back to Bismarck school. We miss that hometown environment. Bismarck is a great place to grow up and a great place to go to school. We miss all of it, even the cafeteria food. (Especially the biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

I was so proud to be a 04 Bismarck graduate. The staff works hard to make each day safe, fun, and productive. Plus is is a great place to grow up in for any one.
