As a new resident of ND, we are VERY pleased with the Mandan Middle School. The faculty are very committed to meeting the individual needs of every student. They seem to have a good grasp of differentiating instruction based on the multiple levels of skill within the classroom and don't teach to the middle. Our children have moved to this school in the middle of their middle school career. That they have adjusted well and report 'loving' their school says volumes.

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.
