I had four children who went to this school and it is by far one of the best schools they have ever attended. Creativity and independent thinking is encouraged. (Very rare in public schools these days). The teachers are caring and passionate professionals. The whole community is awesome. I would recommend this school without reservation to anyone.

My two children have been at this school since the start of the 2007-2008 school year. They are in 3rd grade and kindergarten. The school is excellent. The teachers are creative, dedicated and professional. My kindergarten son seems to have some problems with audiotory processing and they picked up on it very quickly and have been extremely prompt and thorough in their evaluation and interventions. The kids at the school are great as well. We love it!

We moved here from a large metropolitan area. My first concern was wether or not my children would get the same kind of education as they were. I am 150% satisfied to the education level of this school. I think the teachers are some of the best teachers I have seen. I love the closeness of the class as well as in the entire school. My children were greeted with open arms and have adjust very well. I also have never seen a community be so active in a school. I give the school and community a A+!!!! Way to go!

MT City Elementary is an excellent school. My children enjoy small class sizes and dedicated and caring teachers. The school strives to expand the learning experience and encourages each individual child to reach their potential. The school provides a great learning environment. It's great!

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.
