My child was not at this school for very long and with good reason. There was hardly any notice sent home when there were other functions or events going on at school. The teacher my child had seemed very nice, but talked down to parents like we were children too. When concerns were shared, they were ignored. The reading /library program is a joke as well as math. The previous school my child attended was almost a full year more advanced than when my child attended this school.

Kudos to the staff and administration of Daly Elementary. The veteran staff is comprised of master teachers all working for the best of the child!

This school employees some dedicated, wonderful teachers and does have resources and potential to be a great school. However, it is under direction of new administrator in the past few years and that has been detrimental to the school and, most importantly, the students. Students with disabilities suffer most specifically and consistently, however. Parents sharing concerns in parent support groups state a fear of retribution against thier child based on past experience and/or the experience of others, and so choose to keep quiet. It can be a good school....but a parent must be very strong, proactive, listen to your child, question and/or research everything you are told by the administrator(s)

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.
