Posted March 3, 2010

Northwood is the only school within the Grand Forks area to be rated in the top 100 public schools in the United States by a major educational magazine. It also is a state of the art building, and has fantastic facilities. I have the choice to send my kids to four different schools, and I am sending them there.

Northwood Public School is planning a $1.8 million dollar building project this summer. An updated computer room, modern library, additional classrooms, and a new kitchen with enlarged dining room will be added to the existing school. This project will be beneficial to the current students and future students. The teachers and administration work well together as can be noticed at the school board meetings.

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.
