Currently a single mom of two boys, ages 13 and 10, and living in Pennsylvania. Possibly marrying and moving to Billings, MT., but very apprehensive about the move. I hate the cold and really could do without snow, but like it enough to appreciate a beautiful morning covering of it. Are there good schools in and around Billings and is it a nice place for young boys to grow and prosper. I do have a son that is diagnosed as "bi-polar", does anyone have any information as to what special education opportunities are available for children with "special needs"?Any info on the school system and special education resources available would be greatly appreciated. The people that have posted previous comments seem very helpful and nice,,so i am hoping that i will hear back from some of the nice residents of Billings or surrounding cities.
Thank you for any advice and help you all could give.

Hello and welcome to the forum
Here is a link to get you started.
Thinking about Billings
The snow is really a consideration, and there is lots of ice. Schools here are being hit hard by the economy, maybe I would think really hard if you already have an IEP in place. Mental services are difficult here because of the isolation, but keep posting and we will try to help you.
Good luck

Oh yes, if it weren't for those dam liberals, environmentalists, tree-huggers and the rest of them, there wouldn't be any bark beetles.

What's become of this country anyway?

That's probably because most of the people in Montana are actually New Yorkers or from Connecticut....

Besides what do they know? There are only like 1,100 native Californians, the rest of them are from Montana!

Lol

Yes, I heard that Gus Hall and Emma Goldman started the Sierra Club, and use the United Nations to carry out "Alien Orders" from Tralfmador.

And since I heard it, you can certainly take it as the gospel truth.

I know this is an old thread but I've gotta defend Missoula... I have lived in both Bozeman and Missoula and while I love Bozeman I think Missoula is by far much more laid-back and friendly. It's also very clean...not sure why one of the previous posters thought it was dirty. It's kind of like Boulder without the social pressure. Also it's much warmer than most of MT...banana-belt and all that. Bozeman has majestic, breath-taking mountains but the Bitterroots are much more hike-able. Just depends on what you are looking for with the outdoorsy stuff. I've never lived in CDA so I cannot comment on that idea.

Bozeman and Helena are also nice...but I agree that Missoula has the most to offer culturally. And the people are so happy and friendly (generalization, of course--there are always jerks everywhere!!). Try Missoula, people!!! (If you can find a job and can afford it...the downside...)

Mt-7,
Thanks for answering my post. No one else has given any comments. My fiancee' has his family in Montana and has his heart set on moving all of us there as well.His sister is in the education field in Billings and has assured me that there are services available for a child with disabilities. However, Pa. seems to be farther ahead in taking care of special needs more so than other states.
Still looking for MORE posts to help me make an informed decision...if anyone out there has information that is beneficial to my concerns,i urge you to post and it will be greatly appreciated.
Again, thank you Mt-7..any further advice would be welcomed as well.
