My son's gone to CH 4 years. I feel it's gone down considerably the last few years. They had a great principal but put another one in. He's very military, doesn't seem to be in touch with the children, the school is reluctant to meet any kind of IEP or special needs for children. Some of the teachers are good, but hindered by the powers that be, I feel

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.
