Well trained, experienced, caring staff. Great programs, good education level. Communicates well w/ parents. My only complaint is that they should try to represent a more balanced religious belief system or crack down on Christians soliciting my kindergartner's soul.

Really weak communication with the staff at this school.

C.C. is a wonderful school that we will dearly miss. The staff is wonderful and treats every child with kindness and care. The principal is great and is very hands on and involved, making school a fun atmosphere. Cheryl works the front desk and she is a special person who takes the extra time to make everything flow just right. The teachers are also wonderful and our children had a great learning experience there.

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.
