I am an 8th grader at elder grove and I love it! The teachers are so fun and they help you learn! They know what they are talking about and there is a great communication system between the principal, the students, the teachers, and the parents! The principals help you as much as they can and they try to get to know each student individually!

Elder Grove is an amazing school. Both of my children go there and enjoy it. They have understanding teachers that are strict when duty calls and have unique ways of teaching the kids. Also I know that my kids did very well on the CRTs and said that they already knew it! Thanks Elder Grove!

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.
