My sister and I just moved here from Florida, she is in the third grade. She claims this is the best school she has been to and is always excited to go! It makes me happy knowing she enjoys school soo much!

My godson Randall Hoffman loves Ms. Ohnstad's kindergarten class. He is always excited about going to school, including both years of Head Start to present. Go Agassiz!

The special education program at Lake Agassiz is without a doubt one of the best run programs I've seen. The use of the 'para' in association with integrated classroom seems to be working well.

Great school. Helps kids be at the best of their potential. I like how the whole school gets incolved not just the teacher but the principal, other needed teachers, specialists and even the social worker. They are great. Keep up the good work!

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.
