Posted December 10, 2011

This school is lacking in leadership and direction, the overall focus is on the students being prepaired to pass state tests instead of an over all focus on getting an actual education. There is a total lack of respect for parents from the teahers or principal. The goals for a students educational standards are not to exceed expectations only to meet them at the lowest point possible. There is no proceedure in place to encourage communication between the parents, teacher and principle and when asked there is no clear directive or goal for the school but for the students to "explore" their education. There is very little activity by the PTA.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math. The Dakota STEP is standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
