I attended school at Lodge Grass from 1st-5th grade. I later came back my 8th grade year. I enjoyed every moment when I was there. Not only did I learn a lot, I made many friends. I have many fond memories of my friends, teachers, and staff.

If you want your children to learn anything of merit, this is not the school for you. As indicated by the low percentage on the Iowa Basic Skills Test results, learning seems to be a very low priority here. My oldest child graduaged kindergarten with a 1.5 reading level, and then graduated 1st grade with a 1.0 reading level. I was reassured all year that he was doing well and really trying hard, but when they go backwards in their scholastic achievements, there is a definate problem. They are so hung up with the politics of the school, that the children take a back seat to other activities.

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.
