Senior High is a great place to work. The teachers care about their jobs as educators and try to continually refine their skills to better serve their students. The administration team is supportive and positively oriented. The focus is on helping kids achieve at their greatest potential.

I just graaduated from Senior and I think it was one of the best high school experiences! The teachers are all there to teach and will help in any way they can. The principal is great and listens to his students and makes school-wide changes based on student input. Senior High provides a great learning experience, but is also a very fun place to be- especially for the students involved in many extra-curricular activities!

My son is a special needs child and i have been very impressed by the staff and teachers. They are easy to talk to and they listen to me. I have a very happy freshman and he is looking forward to next year. What impressed me most was that 100% of the professionals in his life said send him to senior. I have seen an amazing amount of parent involvement. His teachers kept me informed on his progress and the principal was very open about security and that if my son had any problems he could come in and talk. My experiance has been very positive and i too look forward to next year.

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.
