Overall I graduated and made it out in one piece. The environment was encoraging and the teaching staff overall was above average. The other students were a little harsh, but okay. Lots of AP classes and chances to excell however. I would say the best public high school in the city.

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.
