Posted January 12, 2013

I am a student at this school, not a parent. I am in the eighth grade, and I hate it. The popular students take in all the new kids and turn them into people like them - self-centered and mean. There are defined lines between student cliques, and pretty much everyone has sat at the same lunch table since 6th grade. The guidance counselor really tries to help, but she isn't very good at it. The teachers do teach the concepts we need to learn, but we move on too quickly for some students. Because of this, we recently had to start the entire chapter over in math. The popular students have a huge problem with prejudice and if you've been going to this school district your entire life like me, they label you by what you were like in the past years. I have tried to be well-liked in this school, but nobody cares. I don't have many friends, and the guidance counselor has tried and failed to get rid of bullying. I would not suggest this school district for your children. This is coming from an actual student, and trust me when I say this. Your child will not be well-liked at this school, especially if they become popular when they arrive. Don't make your child go through this.

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.
