The learning environment is hampered by the lack of concern over the volatile atmosphere. Bullying and looking at the kids as the 'throw-away' group make this a scary school. Kids 'survive', not thrive.

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.
