I absolutely love this school for my children! They have had very positive experiences here and when issues arise the teachers are prompt and very professional at taking care of the situation. They are very attentive to any changes your child may or may not be going through and I could not ask for better service! I recommend Gussner to anyone who asks.

This is a wonderful school! This school has the biggest and safest playground in the whole city. I love the new basketball hoops in the playground. When I went to this school I had a wonderful time. The teachers were always there for support and help.

Gussner school is wonderful! I have two children in this school and they have had only 'positive' experiences as Gussner! They have great teachers! Great faculty all around! They are very willing to help any way that they can. If you want your child to have the best in public school, Gussner's it!

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.
