Posted March 15, 2006

This elementry schools is one of the few great elementry school in Great Falls Montana. The academic programs they have really help the children to get ready for some other goals in life that they will face some day. Some of the nicest facualty you will ever meet. The music programs are very well organized. There art programs are fun to watch when they come around. They have alot of sports including Hi Z basketball and soccer. They also have Boy Scout meetings in there cafeteria every now and then. I have also seen many girl scouts in the school as well. The parents are very well involved. Almost all the parents here are there helping the children, if it is in the cafeteria, the gym, classes, sports, art, or some other extra activites that the school holds from now and then. It is a great school!

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.
