Viking is fabulous. Our son attended K and now first here. The teachers have all been great and its very much a community school. Everyone knows my son's name - the principal, lunch ladies, paras, librarians, secretary. When an issue came up with a fellow student, everyone participated in finding a solution - his teacher & the principal. I cannot say enough about the fact that they seem to care about each and every child in the building . Unfortunately, we are moving at the end of this year. I only hope that we can find a place as good where we go next.

Viking is an excellent school! The teachers and staff truly care about their students and always go the extra mile for them. The small but dedicated PTO is also supportive of the students and teachers - it sponsors family fun nights, fundraisers, and gives teachers extra money throughout the year for field trips and extra supplies. This is our 3rd year at Viking and we will be sad to leave when the military takes us away this spring.

We have been at Viking for four years now and love this school. The principal, teachers and support staff (ie. para's, reading intervention team, etc) are outstanding and all go above and beyond. The PTO is small and does a great job. Overall, Viking has been a great school and we will miss it dearly when we leave.

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.
