Teachers are okay...some need to be fired and fresh, new teachers need to be brought in, but that's with almost any school. Focus seems to be mostly on extremely bright kids or kids who are failing...children like mine (most A's, a couple B's, some C's on tests) get forgotten.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Dakota used the North Dakota State Assessment (NDSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 11. Results represent students enrolled in the school for the entire academic year. The NDSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Dakota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
