My daughter had a wonderful education here from k-2nd grade (we moved.) She was challenged, expected to do her best, and honestly loved her teachers and the staff. We've since moved away, and miss the relationship with her teachers. Living in a larger city makes it more difficult for teachers to connect with children, and in Townsend there are no limitations!

I am finding that the teachers here are very discouraging and say rude comments to the children. My child has never had such a hard time in school ever until going here...very dissapointed and saddened as we like living here, but this school makes life pretty stressful.

Cecelia Hazelton is great. The school/community does care about its sports teams - the students who participate are outstanding students. Cecelia Hazelton is a small school in a small town. It offers a safe learning environment, and a great foundation on which to build an education.

I feel the quality of the education is poor. There is no foreign language taught until high school. Teachers and admin have an attitude problem. My kids are not learning and are not challenged. The school does not respect either parents or the kids yet they expect us to respect them. All the school cares about are their sports teams. I plan on moving to another district asap.

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.
