There is a sense of Secrecy when you enter this school. You get a bad vibe immediately, and the further you enter the worse it gets. Staff is unfriendly, and the Administrators seem to be covering the discord by watching staff very closely when they are talking with parents, and students. I moved my kids out of this school because of this reason, and hopefully so will you. The Counselors walk around yapping about people they are there to help.

Teachers at this school are unconnected with students. This school is an employment agency for a chosen few who are relatedto the school board. The school board is comprised of individuals from three families. Three members in one family and two swing board members. Students seem to come aft the employees interests.

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.
