I was a parent with children in Lakeside School for 11 years and continue to be impressed with the consistent quality of education and experiences provided by the teachers & staff. I will miss Lakeside School!

This school is amazing!! My twins were preemies at birth and have had developmental and learning disabilities. After moving here from a school in Oregon that was not helping them, the staff and such at this school had them both reading within a month! I love this school and refuse to move out of the area until all 4 of my children have made it all the way through this school.

This school lets lower achievers fall through the cracks.

I had my son in another local school. He struggled through his K-1 years. This got to the point to where he didn't like school and wasn't making any progress. The great staff at Lakeside School including the principle took great interest in helping my son achieve his potential.

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.
