What an awesome learning environment! The teachers and administration really care about kids and it shows. Many of the teachers have been teaching here for their entire career and know thier subject matter well. The administration recently changed as the principal resigned and the assistant, Mrs. Mau took his place. I think the change in the environment has been noticible and positive! She has been at Jim Hill as a counselor, vice principal, and now principal and seems to be well liked by the kids and staff. Jim Hill has good students from arguably the best elementary schools in town (Washington, Edison, Perkett) and the assemblies, homeroom environment, and education to kids of all levels is evident. Great School!!

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.
