Malta has wonderful teachers, and helpers! Malta School is so willing to help their students grow and flourish. We are a small town and everyone is like family and it is a great support for the school.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers genuinely care about the students and will go the extra mile to see that they succeed. The discipline is consistent and effective through a school-wide plan. My children learned so much more here, than they did in our former district.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 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.
