Posted April 30, 2008

Moved from Fargo schools to escape the myopic administration of principal defending atrocious teaching practices in an effort to make himself appear better than he is. L.E. Berger was the perfect antidote. Most teachers in Outstanding category and Principal Howitz is Superior to all others I have witnessed.

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.
