We haven't been in Kalispell that long, but I am incredibly impressed with the schools here. My son Logan has Autism and seizures and I was worried about how the move would effect him. Kalispell brought together a team to decide which school my son would be best served in, which would address all of his needs. Once they decided on the school they bus him to it. His classrooms are designed for special needs children. They are also integrating him with regular classrooms so that he gets to be with other kids as well. I couldn't be more pleased with this school district. I love it here.

I absolutely love this school. The teachers are great and always make you feel welcome into the class room at anytime. I've had 3 students attending over the last 15 years and there really isn't enough good things I could say. Teachers are not only quick to identify academic hurdles that may arise, but also quick to act on them and get the extra help the student needs. Fabulous I say...FABULOUS!

Hedges is a terrific elementary school. The teachers are dedicated; administration is hard-working and passionate about the school. It also just has a very nice feel about it. A lot of families walk to/from school every day, and the school is bright and cheery.

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.
