Bottineau Elementary Central School is the worst elementary school in ND. The administration is terrible, specifically the Principal and the Superintendent. The retired principal had a problem with "keeping his hands to himself" and abused children in the school. This of course, got swept under the rug for numerous years. I have been asked to "leave" the school if I had a problem with things and go somewhere else. If you have a child with special needs, you're better off homeschooling. They don't care for special needs children, as they perceive them as a burden and an inconvenience to them. They have zero experience with special education and have zero knowledge or training in it. All the teachers are associated with the administration and they all back each other up and continue to teach poorly. If your child is getting bullied, you will be the one getting a phone call for your child being seen sticking up for themselves. There are apparently no para's to watch special needs or other children in school and on the school bus. I can't stress enough how terrible this school district is. Don't send your child to Bottineau school district, home school or move! Awful school.
