Lima Schools is one of those special really small schools. There are around 100 student K-12. A full list of sports are available: Basketball, Volleyball, Track, and of course 6-man football. Great art and theatre classes are available to highschoolers. The teacher to student ratio is one of the best in the state and most of the teachers have been here over 5 yrs. No children get to hide in the back of the class and just slide thru, all the kids are called on and encouraged to become involved in discussions. My 3 kids have been in this school system their entire school carrier, and I think that the lower grades especially prepared them for greatness. There are some drawbacks, no advanced or college prep courses are available, no music or band program, and vo-ag classes are pretty limited. Jason Sutton

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.
