This is an outstanding school. The principal and staff are very professional and have created an enviorment that holds students to high standards. The staff is caring and communicates often with parents. This is the best school.

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.
