The school is nice and they have a nice auditorium. The problem is the students. They are rude, stuck-up, and just plain mean. I transferred after my first few months. I'm sorry to anyone who goes there and is not like that. I'm not talking about you.

I have no complaints about the school and the staff is wonderful. I had two kids go to this school and they loved it. The staff worked with my kids during so serious medical problems and death of close friends. s

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.
