Thompson is for sports first then education second community. This is sad, that the school board members and principles serve their school district this way. The teachers work hard for the students to do well. Which is a positive for the district.

This school by far, is the best school my kids have attended. We are a military family, so we have visited a lot of school's. I love the teachers, the staff, everyone is so nice. I could just go on and on. My kids can't wait to get up each morning and go to school. They say they wish school was in the summer too. This school has k-12 and the older kids are really nice to the younger kids. I was very shocked. I was not sure how I would feel about my kids be around older kids. We have had no problem with that. My kids have learned so much.

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.
