Wow! I think this is a really great school district. I see some negative comments, but I realize that most are old postings-with the exception of one student. So much can change in 5 years. My children have attended this district for 3 years and love the school and the teachers. They have been challenged while enjoying their learning experience. The students are nice, and mine aren't athletic. Parent involvement is welcome, and it is evident that parent/teacher communication is imperative for successful learning. There is a sense of pride and community in this school district, and I'm glad my children attend Frenchtown schools!

There are some great teachers. There are more poor teachers that just don't care about the students. We watch a lot of movies. School is a waste of time

Frenchtown is a small school, but everyone is really nice and the teachers care about the students.

The teachers are not as attentive to the children as they should be. May be from being overwelmed. School is aware of drug use by students but is unwilling to do anything about it. Very disappointing! They are now moving the JR High school by the High School, Horrible idea!!! I feel the drug use is going to increase and that because the high school students do not know how to drive the speed limit through the parking lot, there will probably be a few incidents of JR High students being hit by cars.

Awesome school. Great sports programs. Fantastic student to teacher ratios. A lot of honor courses offered. Only drawback is that there aren't any advanced placement classes offered at this time. Our son is graduating this year and had an absolute blast every year. He is very athletic and is graduating fifth in his class. A LOT of community involvement in the sports programs. Great School!!!

The academic programs are excellent but there are few electives to choose from.

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.
