We relocated to Livingston and enrolled our children in SGMS. It has been a wonderful experience. Our children love the teachers and class size. The staff is friendly and eager to help with any need. Our children had no problems fitting in and making friends. SGMS went far and above our expectations.

We relocated to Montana from CA , and enrolled our child in SGMS. It was the worst mistake we could have made. The teachers are fine, but the children are rough and mean - and don't accept outsiders. Don't do this to your kids !

Sleeping Giant Middle School is a very nice school. The teachers are very helpful and devoted to their jobs, and the school is safe. Their biggest problem is the cliques- they have a lot of mean people.

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.
