Absarokee schools offers an amazing amount of classes for its students in an environment that is safe, respectful, and holds everyone in the school to standards that are rarely seen these days. The students are not a number, but an actual person that everyone knows about and cares about. This school continues to increase its testing scores and its students continue to accelerate in classes that prepare them for whatever their future holds. This may be scholarship awards for college or classes in vocational interests beyond the high school setting. They have a school spirit that far exceeds any in the area and it permeates through all levels of the school system. This school also creates an incredible learning environment special needs of children from preschool through high school. In these days of craziness, violence, and self-interest it is a school where an individual can enjoy learning safely.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 Montana used the Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to assess students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in reading and math and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Montana. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
