Posted September 13, 2005

Our children attended Dakota Prairie High School. Because of the excellent education they received, they were very well prepared to attend state universities in North Dakota. We credit the outstanding math, science, language, art, music, and social studies teachers of DP with much of the success of our children's college careers.

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.
