When it comes to learning, you want your child to get the best education possible.

If you're raising a family in Montana, your schooling options can be limited depending on where you live. While there are private school options, they're spread out across the state. That means your child will likely be enrolled in a public school in the area.

Public schools are fantastic in Montana, which means your child is likely to get a high-quality education. But, where are the best elementary schools in Montana? We might have that answer.

Family Minded made a list of the Best Public Elementary Schools in the United States, and Montana's pick was quite a surprise. The schools were picked based on state test scores, student-to-teacher ratio, quality of the school district, and other factors.

The best public elementary school in Montana is Cardwell School in Cardwell. Cardwell school is a Kindergarten through 8th-grade school with an incredible student-to-teacher ratio of 8 to 1. One of the best facts about Cardwell School is that because they also serve as the middle school, they are ranked as the best middle school in Montana, and this doesn't include that the teachers in all grades are ranked number one in the state.

Some of the runners-up include Creston in Kalispell, West Glacier, Hobson Elementary, and Fort Benton Elementary.

The facts show that schools with a low student-to-teacher ratio help students get more hands-on education. The teachers can be more involved in the students being proficient in all areas of education.

That is a massive upside about Montana schools. The smaller class sizes help your children get a quality education.
