The secretary at this school and principle are two of the rudest people I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. Unfortunately, we haven't been here long enough to put up a fight toward the apparent nepotism and ego influencing their behavior...and mouths!

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.
