My son will be in the fifth grade at Phoenix in the 2005-6 school year, and has attended Phoenix since first grade. Our entire experience has been positive - small classes (18 this year), personal attention, a new facility that was built after the flood of 1997, a principal who knows all the students' names, and a gifted/talented program that has given Jonathan the extra stimulation that he needs - all have added up to an elementary school experience that couldn't have been surpassed anywhere in the country.

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.
