The Minot Public School district has many excellent teachers. Almost every single one is there to see their students succeed in not only their class, but life as well. They stay before and after school and try to find fun creative ways to help students learn. It is a wonderful environment that allows students to ask questions and feel welcomed. However, like anything else in the world, Minot Public Schools could use some changes. With Minot being in North Dakota, the snow and weather is not always beautiful. There are times when the school ought to be closed for a day or two to let the city get a handle on the snow that plagues the city. Unfortunately, this does not happen, forcing students to go to school in dangerous conditions. It is unsafe and unfair to students and faculty alike, and I would love to see the district change their policy on what should and should not be snow days.

Minot Public School district is a growing and changing community. Everyone involved takes pride in thew everyday hard work they do in regards to receiving good grades, working hard in extra curricular activities, and overall making the environment better and more safe for everyone.
Minot public schools were always clean and well cared for. Teachers wee always friendly and did their best t help me with whatever questions I had. If they couldn't answer my questions they would point me to great resources that could. There were great opportunities through schools as well. I received the opportunity to travel to Europe, grow in terms of leadership skills through clubs, and meet diverse groups of people in my community. Character counts was always preached throughout schools and it really made a difference in the way my class treated each other. Although diversity wasn't always the number one priority of the school, there were some opportunities to highlight different cultures and groups , but they weren't as advertised as I believe they should have been.
