My son had Mrs. Ryerson last year and I just have to say she should get the teacher of the year award! She is awsome! My son made progress by leaps and bounds. She was so energetic and made learning so fun that my son always looked forward to returning to class.

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.
