Two of my kids went through CBE. Classes are good, admins are pretty strong. Teachers are caring and the facilities are awesome and still shiny new. I have no problem sending my kids there. The oldest two are doing well and graduating college.

I loved going to Carl Ben. I was a Bronco in 6th grade, a Seahawk in 7th grade, and a Bearcat in 8th grade. I learned so much at this school. There was one class we had to take in eight grade I didn't really like, but otherwise it was wonderful. My favorite teacher was Mr. Raaen, send your kids to CBE!

I'm a student at Carl Ben and I think the teachers are terrific and the system is too. I'm going into 7th grade and my 6th grade teachers were fantastic and all of my friends in 7th and 8th grade say that they are learning a lot and the teachers are fun. So if you're new at Fargo, think about sending your child to Carl Ben!

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.
