Whittier faculty are the best! My son has some special needs and the school has come together to make sure that all of his needs are being met!

We have a great faculty at our school. A good part of them have a Masters degree. We have a great group who help our students with their reading plus other areas. Our school could improve its playground equipment.

Whittier has over 400 students enrolled. We are in need of some new playground equipment and some new games for our kids to play at recess. We have a great principal and teaching staff.

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.
