The best teacher, is the teacher that also can learn from their students. We are young adults and the future of this nation. I think we deserve a little more recognition.

Best school ever. It should get an award. On a 1-100 scale it would be a 99.9 cause sure I'm a student and I get in trouble so you know I ain't going say 100% right. Well I rate this the best there is.

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.
