This is the best school that my son has ever attended! If you have to chance to send your child to this school you really can't ask for anything more!

Irving school has wonderful teachers, an awesome Principle and great staff. Irving also has the best PIC and wonderful parental involvement. My children attended Irving for the past 5 years and have excelled. Irving school is a small school with emphasis on community. However there is one thing I would like to see more of. I wish there was more art classes rather than having one roving art teacher who is shared among the other schools in the district. Other than that, I love Irving school and love that they have after school care.

Both my daughters thrived at Irving. Excellent teachers and caring atmosphere. Band starts at a young age.

My two children have attended Irving Elementary School. My oldest is now at the one of the two local middle schools, Sacajawea, and has had a good academic grounding due to the wonderful quality of educational resources at Irving. Irving is known as the International School, and is a community oriented, neighborhood centered school. The Parent Organization is very friendly and accessible. Since it is a Title I school, there are reduced price and free breakfast and lunch options for qualifying students. Irving has an excellent speech and reading resource staff, both my kids benefitted from their services. I highly recommend Irving School. They are currently remodelling and adding classroom space and are at near capacity enrollment.

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.
