Teachers care. they are interesting characters that can get involved in students lives, as long as you do your work and dont cause trouble you should be fine. the rules arent clear, though, certain students have better privelages than others, it can be quite unfair. classes are basic, you keep with the work and ask questions if you dont understand, thats it. theres some good extracurricular activities. the foods...interesting.

There are no tutors available at this school as the money was spent for one at the High School. Math challenged students in particular are struggling for help.

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.
