I have had a child at this school since 2008. We have had nothing but wonderful experiences with teachers, staff and the principal. Is it perfect? Of course not. Yet I have always been encouraged to be active in my children's classrooms and set up conferences when needed. Any questions or concerns I have had are always addressed by the principal, teacher or staff member in a professional, honest and respectful manner.

I AGREE, POOR LEADERSHIP BY PRINCIPAL. POOR COMMUNICATION WITH PARENT. INABILITY TO RELATE TO PARENT. VERY RUDE.

I have had 2 nieces attend grade school at Miles Avenue, and both of them absolutely love the school. They were made to feel they mattered and instilled in both of them a thirst for knowledge.

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.
