Posted November 4, 2007

We have a 2nd grade child at Lewis and Clark Elementary. Based upon our experience over the last 3 school years, we have found the quality of the teaching staff at LCE to be exceptional. The teachers are tuned into their students' needs and respond with compassion and professionalism. The music teacher, Mrs. Morrison, is creative and very positive. As parents we love the fact that the school has embraced Indian Education for All and has provided Native American cultural exposure for our child. The student body is blessed to have many Native American students and their families as part of the school community. Mrs. Karen Allen, the school principal, is very approachable and is a true leader. While we have only met with her formally on one occasion she seemed to carefully consider our concerns and responded to our satisfaction. Lewis and Clark is a great public school.

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.
