Posted January 9, 2012

The staff is extremely nice and friendly. However, I am extremely disappointed in the curriculum and education provided at this school. In the 4 months my son has been in the 3rd grade, he has seen Charlie Brown 3 times during class, he has watched Polar Express, and their idea of an educational film is Free Willy. The children who test positively on their spelling tests are allowed to have free time (play sorry, on the computer, etc.) while the children who did not pass re-take the test. I cannot stress how disappointed we are in this school. During parent/teacher conference, we have asked the teacher to challenge our child and she agreed. Yet nothing has happened and this was 2 months ago. My child even asked the teacher to challenge him and the only take-a-way the teacher received from this is that he knows how to spell their name. This is a sorry place we are in when children are watching Free Willy and playing sorry in the place of real education.

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.
