This school is terrible. My child attended for 1 1/2 years, and my analysis is they did more harm than good in that time. They do not inspire or encourage, they discourage children. 3 out of 5 families on my street have gone to great expense and trouble to remove their children from this school. If you are looking for quality and compassionate education, do not send your children here!

The opportunities that students experience at Marion Middle School are outstanding. They far exceed the opportunities that students would receive in a larger school. They get individualized attention when needed. Real life applications and utilization of the different learning styles are included daily. The students truly feel that Marion Middle School is their educational family and strive for success.

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.
