The school has improved so much in the past few years, we are happy with the small community and huge opportunities for our kids, the teachers here care, and the administration is both skilled and understanding, willing to work with you and take in ideas. Great school!

Not a easy school to fit into, not trying to be mean but one should be aware the school lacks acceptence of diversity. needs events that brings the kids together to learn acceptence rather than sticking with their own kind. The only school that wanted my child on a IEP out of 3 states testings.

Am not pleased with alot of this schools policies as compared with other schools in comparrison. Needs improvement on making learning experience fun, lower tolerence and increase fun factor, meaning drop the serious level a few notches so children wana wake up and go (and believe e alot do not wana go) Other schools they did wana and were up way before the alarm went off..Wake up and catch up with 2009

As a teacher at this school, I would like to point out the feature that attracted me to this school. Although it has had problems, this school is making a serious effort to improve. We have improved the climate and our standards. We are on the way to becoming a high quality school. The framework is there to continue this improvement in a systematic way.

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.
