Posted August 19, 2010

my daughter went to this school for two years, and we had a pretty good experience! The teachers are extremely dedicated and they love being in touch with the parents and keeping us up to date. The only problem we had was there was quite a bit of "bullying" at this school and my daughter was picked on quite a bit. But as far as the educational experience it was fantastic!

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.
