Default Colstrip schools are great

I am assuming that if you are asking about colstrip schools someone in your family is looking at working for the power plant there. The schools are among the best in the state by far, they are well funded and have great teaching styles with small classes. This is to get people to come work at the plant. The town on the other hand has little to no employment opportunities for any one aside from a gas station or two and a couple of local food places and the bowling alley. There is one a movie theater 45 minutes away from town and when it comes to non after school related activities there is a place called CPRD that can be very expensive. Aside from that there is little and I mean little to do. The power plant is the life line of the town, if the plant has a lay off the town all but dries up, if the plant starts to hire the town swells, property prices sky rocket and all is good till the plant lays off again.
Colstrip is where I went to school and lived for about thirteen years, I knew many people there when I was there and not a single of them are still there. The crime rate is fairly low, but drugs are high. There is a lot of money there at times and nothing to spend it on. You will see, have fun in Colstrip.

Default Thank you Pony

Thanks Pony for your reply on Colstrip. I am trying to return to Montana to work and my background is in the teaching field. I am just not so sure I want to live in a place that has high housing and no activity.
