Our experience at Skyview was very positive on a wholw. My kids were enrolled in honors and AP classes with excellent teachers. The kids were challenged and both earned college scholarships. Parents need to be involved with their children's education to know when the teacher and student are a good fit. Like any school, some teachers are sub par. Principal should of been more responsive and engaging.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 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.
