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.

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.
