Posted February 15, 2013

I was raised in Beaverhead County and attending middle school and high school in Dillon. There is a slight bias towards athletes, but only because many of the teachers are also coaches who have therefore developed strong relationships with the athletes. The A.P. courses taught were excellent and I was prepared for the tests and received 4-5 on all of them. The administration is focused on providing a good education on their minimal budget. The school has experienced a massive drop in enrollment from a high of 575 students in 1997 to around 350 in 2013. This has impeded some of the class choices as funding is limited, but not to a large degree. This is a cohesive school with a strong community that is extremely supportive of the athletic and scholastic programs. Compared with Lima, Twin Bridges, Sheridan, or even Butte and Butte Central, these is the best school in S.W. Montana to get a quality education and good social experience.

The Feb 2010 & Aug 2009 reviews sound like the school my kids went to. I had 3 kids come through Dillon schools & it was repressive & depressing, with favoritism toward certain athletes, etc. In the very first reviews, the student reviewer claims that they gave her a good education, then misspells 2 words. Yikes!

Repressive and depressing place to go to school. Administration is overcontrolling and there is little room left for free expression. Faculty for the most part could use improvement and favoritism to students who participate in certian sports is obvious.

This school prepares students well for life beyond highschool (college or not). I am an engineer and I was well prepared for college life and more. The school has many extra-curricular activities and has expanding its advanced placement courses since I was there.

I dislike this school very much and thought there was tons of room for improvement...I felt like they were way behind in mathematics, choir, and english. I might have well done high school on an internet course.

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.
