My eldest, who has Asperger's, was enrolled in Mountain View's preschool program and he absolutely loved it. The teachers are simply amazing and will go above and beyond for their students. The curriculum is very structured and the student/teacher ratio is fairly small. I recommend this program to any parent of a special needs child.

Both of our son's were enrolled in the preschool program, and our youngest is autistic. Since our first enrollment of the boys' we have felt such compassion in the teachers and the principal at the school. They have greatly helped our boys' with the speech and occupational therapy that they provide as part of the special education program. I loved working with all the teachers' and the principal, because they have always been there to listen and provide their assistance in working out any concerns that we had with our boys'. We are a military family and are moving in Sept. 2004, and will greatly and sincerely miss every single teacher that worked with our sons'. I wish we could take all the boys' teachers and principal with us, and I just hope and pray our next school is as great as this one has been.

Mountain view really seems to know what they are doing. It is a smart, safe, and clean school.

Our 3 1/2 year old son is in the preschool class at Mountain View, and he loves it there.. ALL the teachers are wonderful and they work closely with all the parents' in what is needed for their children's education and success.. My 2 1/2 year old son (who is autistic) is also going in November and they are very able to meet his special needs. They are trained in how to work with our 2 1/2 year old in determining the best education to use for his success.. We are very happy with this school and it's teachers...

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.
