CONS : Out-of-date security - adults just walk onto campus, no sign in or out for kids, it s a disaster waiting to happen. Pick up and drop -- a nightmare due to parents PARKING in the drop off zone and blocking traffic flow. Bullying -- an epidemic at Muldown. Groups of kids deliberately bully others at recess, before and after school and in the hallways. It's reinforced by certain members of the staff that seem to view bullying as excusable when the child being bullied is poor, a minority, non-conforming in appearance, behaviors, interests or abilities, is not a Christian, is gifted, is disabled or has special needs, or simply is "not from around here..." There's a lack of diversity in the area, but it is the lack of tolerance and acceptance combined with adults excusing bullying here that is leading to institutionalized bullying for the district. When the kids who bully here get to middle school they will feel entitled to bully with impunity unless administrators do something NOW about the issue. PROS: H.E. here includes cross country skiing, ice fishing, downhill skiing and swimming. Arts in April is a great program . There are some good teachers. Mully night.

The teachers and parents are involved with the students. One of the events this year already was a made in Montana lunch that parents attended with their child.

Teachers are very well qualified and have a genuine concern for students. This is a beautiful facility and has a warm, friendly environment.

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.
