Posted September 13, 2008

I just love this school. I have two kids in this school. One in 3rd and one in 1st grade. They love it. We are a military family, we have moved around in the past 5 years 4 times. One of my children had been in schools in Idaho, Texas, Maryland, and I home-schooled for a little while before moving here. Maryland by far has the worst schools, I had ever seen. Then our family moved here to ND. My kids think Thompson is just awesome. After experiencing all the others, we have no complaints. Thompson is wonderful. The teachers actually care. I feel that kids learn more when they are happy. My kids are very happy and love learning at this 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.
