My oldest daughter started kindergarten at Lincoln. She's now in 4th grade, and our younger daughters are in kindergarten and 1st grade. This is one of the best schools I've ever had experience with (I grew up in GF and went to many elementary schools). The principal is friendly and knows all of the students by name, despite the size of the school. The staff at the school is amazing, from the aides to the classroom teachers, to the gym teacher. My daughters absolutely love this school and their teachers. My daughter participates in an extended curricular program that challenges her abilities. My 1st grader participates in the Read Well program to further her reading skills. Lincoln is stellar at recognizing students' strengths and weaknesses, and enhancing the students' strengths, and improving upon their weaknesses. You can't go wrong with this school!!

My husband, his brother and his sister all went to this school. It is the best grade school in Great Falls and that's why our daughter goes there and her sister will go there!

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.
