So far my two children in this school have had a decent experience. They are in 5th grade which I think is too young to be in a middle school. It has gone well for the most part and they are doing well in their classes. The principal seems to be fairly attentive to the 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.
