Our hats off to Tammy W. She is the greatest; from #1 teacher, to the greatest Special Olympics Organizer, Coach in Butte School District. My son will have her as a teacher next year, and is very excited, and can't wait to be there. She has made a difference in so many lives, we can't count. From learning new things to teaching the children we are all on one team, and helping children overcome fears of swimming to just doing our best at what we do, and we are all winners.

East Middle School is a fun and great place to learn. I have enjoyed every minute at this school you have the opportunity to go to advanced classes and the books are not falling apart says the man that knows everything in almost all of my classes we got new books so maybe you shouldn't trash a school when you know absolutely nothing about it!

This school has very unsatisfactory qualities AND wonderful qualities (no in-betweens). The negative things are that it is extremely filthy, unsafe, and there is absolutely no respect toward other students. Despite these factors, however, most of the teachers are excellent. My favorite teacher was Kathy Foley for 7th grade science. She had an incredible imagination and made learning interesting. I would say the shame was on the principal who was there while I was attending (he retired this year).

I belive this school, compared to others in Montana has alot of problemes. The text book are old, and falling apart. The classes are crowded. Each class can have upwards of 20-25 students, with only one teacher to help them all. This fact poses another issue, the kids are not getting the help they need or deserve. I belive that the teachers are spread way to thin.I have been attending Butte schools for the past three years. Two of those years were spent at East Middle School, I am in the 8TH grade. Where I lived before the school ranked one of the highst in the state, they had new material, everything was up to date. Now I wonder sometimes why my family and I left that tpwn, and school for a school like this.

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.
