This is the best elementary school in Sioux Falls, SD. Their teaching staff and curriculum are A+, meaning they use the arts to teach everything. They really encourage creativity and are small enough that my daughter only has 17 kids in her 1st grade class. Dr. Coulter is the best and most friendly principal I know.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
