Love this school! Country setting with grades K-8th. Small classroom sizes and great teachers who always have time to sit down and chat about your child. Also love the fact that the bus picks up my children at the end of the our driveway and every child in the district is able to ride the bus. Very impressed! Great job Cayuse Prairie school!

I have attended this school for about 3 years now, and highly enjoy it. Academic programs are fun for students, but in some cases lacking in the knowledge earned. Music, art, and extracurricular activities are redily available. Parent envolvment is very high, and very good. This gives the parents a good idea of what is going on in the school. Many of my class mates are related to aunts, uncles, and in one case a grand parent, that have attended this school. I resently moved here from a MUCH larger school, and have found that the kids and adults here are much nicer and incredibly friendly to new-comers, more so than in any school I have ever attended. I love this school

This school is stuck in the dark ages! They definitely need some new, young, vibrant and nurturing teachers. The principal pretends he is listening to complaints and frustrations, but he does not seem to follow through with anything! I think the school is this way because it is a small rural school. There are a few parents, also, that are overly involved in the school and think they know more than everyone else; it is ridiculous!

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.
