Although this school is located in a low income area of Miles City, the majority of the students go to school ready to learn. The teachers take the time to learn the learning styles of each of the students, and use that information to impart knowledge. Not only are the teachers teaching our children, they are learning new material, and methods of teaching and bringing it back to the classroom. By being lifetime learners, they impart an enthusiasm of learning to the students that hopefully will follow them throughout their learning careers.

This is coming from one of its students from 2004-2005. My thoughts of this school rock. It has good caring teachers and a wonderful pricipal. I love that school. The teachers really explain what they're talking about.The other thing is that outside the teachers keep a good eye on the kids. They watched me and my friends to keep us safe. They practice lock downs in case somthing would happen, they also practice fire drills in case of a fire.

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.
