I love Washington school because they try so hard with my nephew. He is authistic and they are trying to implement more options for his education.


Posted September 16, 2009

It is a school with many transient students who live in the Women and Family Shelter. Despite this, the teachers are dedicated to help all the children learn, even if they are only there a brief time. The teachers and principal respond to parents and students and help parents understand when their child needs testing, or other services and works with them as much as possible.

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.
