Posted March 8, 2005

We had 3 children at Canyon Creek (k-8) and we loved it. It's small enough to feel a real sense of community. We feel that they were given a decent education in a safe environment. There are some very good teachers and some so-so ones. The music program is surprisingly good (Mrs. Southworth) for such a small school. Our kids enjoyed playing basketball for the school. They were able to walk to school in what we considered to be pretty safe roads.

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.
