this is a nice country school. The facilities however are very old and in need of updating. It could use a makeover and a bit of expansion. The teachers are the real jewel here, very caring. The principal seems ok but comes off as insincere. Overall a good place for my kids.

Very small school without a lunchroom but the teachers really try here. Great communication with the parents and I haven't heard of any bullying here. It's almost like a family. Great school and principal. My two younger children are going here.

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.
