I was a class of 2013 and this school is large but you get the attention you need from counselor and staff. There's a variety of activities, clubs, and sports that you can get involved in. Communication and professionalism are above average. Cheney middle school has an environment which I felt you were safe and productive in. I would recommend this school to anyone.

This school does not communicate well with parents at all. Due dates for projects are never clear. They will not hold children back a grade even if they fail which does not do the student any good. They will not work with students that need extra help unless you have a papers from a doctor with a diagnosis with a learning disorder. Lunch money is always missing from students account and can not be accounted for. I wish my child did not have to go to this school.

Too big...struggle to work with parents who have students with special needs. Desire to achieve better is there...just need some restructuring

I would rate this school above average because there are SO many extracurricular activities to choose from and the teachers keep the students very well disciplined. This is an awesome school!

From my experience this school has a very well structured curriculum. As far as extracurricular activities go, They offer the basic school programs which are in a competitive atmospere. The school stresses strong parent involvement, especially with homework.

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.
