Posted December 20, 2004

Recent Graduate- English, Math, and Science were all very strong in 2000-2004. I was very prepared in subjects when i entered college especially in the English department. History and government were avergae but still effective. The VO-Ag and Family/Life Skills departments are also filled with lots of variety for students of varying interests. The biggest flaw in the school is the guidence office. Students should be prepared in advance for scholarships. -2004 Graduate

I am not a parent, but I am a graduate. I rate this school high in English studies but low in Biological Science studies. I found that English prepared me well for college but the Biology department really did not. Mathematics was either-or due to who the teacher was. History/Goverment was grate (but I was partial to that). Music education was usually great. And that is my review.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
