This is a great school. Very diverse group of students from all etnic and economic backgrounds. Teachers are very good and fair. Many special programs including Spanish, Venture in schools(drama), After school CARE academy. This school gives kids a real world experience. Everyone is not identical nor should they be. Principal is very firm but caring, office staff very helpful. PTA is very active and offer many bonuses for kids. My daughter has gone here for 6 years and I have been pleased.

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.
