This school is the best! The secretary is open and very nice to all parents and kids. Teachers stay on top of keeping in touch on childs progress, working hands on withthe parents. My daughter was teh kid that likes to talk and they got her engaged in activites and made her intrested in learning, she is now an honor roll student.

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.
