This is our last year at Mckinley so sad to be leaving!! The teachers are so Wonderful!! Every one of them seem to get to know your child, and know their strengths and weak areas and work on helping them where they need it! It is like a small community everyone knows everyone here. Your always welcome to come into the school and talk to teachers or just see how everything is going. We just got a new principal this year and she seems to be very nice. Mr. Kahl was an awesome principal and is a hard person to follow, but she seems to be doing a great job. Great Great school, nothing bad to say at all!

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.
