My daughter attended East Middle School for 3 years. The teachers were outstanding as was the vice principal. The music and art programs were great. A large percentage of the student body was from economically depressed areas. Exposure to many economic and ethnic cultures is one of the best educations all children can obtain. East did an excellent job in doing this.

Low parent involvement and even lower academic scores make this the lowest end of the ruler for measuring success. It has been scoring the lowest each year on standardized tests and provides little after school academic programs.

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.
