This school isn't a place for kids with learning disabilities. The staff and administration actively disregard IEP and act as if they are doing you a favor by showing up to IEP meeting. If your kids are overachievers then this is the school to put them in. They like kids who don't complicate their days and don't challenge them to think outside the box.

I Love this school and so do my kids! The teachers are awesome and if I had a disabled child I wouldn't want them going any where esle! I put on 36 extra miles a day just so my kids can go to Burlington. I have had 7 years experience with one chld and 5 years there with my youngest and have yet to have ny problems. They do really care about character, and they show it every day!

This school lacks many of the academic programs that are available at other schools. They have a barely adequate learning disabilities program. Most of the staff are friendly but there are a few that are out right rude.

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.
