I recently removed my daughter from public school due to her not recieving the help sge needed. My daughter is dyslexic and she wasnt given any help. I had three teachers tell me they didnt know how to help her because they werent trained to teach dsylexic children! This school does not help children with learning disorders.

Barbourville is a great school. They have ranked as one of of the Top high schools in the US for the past three years. The award came from US New and World Reports.

I attend Barbourville High School, and have been in the Barbourville school system since preschool. It is definitely the best school in Knox County and one of the best in the region, because I get 1 on 1 attention and a quality education. Our test scores ranked 18th in the state this year, and we are moving up each year in that ranking. BHS is a huge reason I was able to score a 24 on the ACT in seventh grade and a 28 as a 10th grader.

My children all went to the county but when it came time to choose both a middle and a high school, I choose Barbourville. I have never, not one single day, regretted that choice. The school is small and dedicated to the childrens sucess. When I call the office I get Jill, the receptionist-this woman takes the time to know each family personally and i know i am not just one more paretn calling but i'm John and Pauls mom. I love this place. I have no previous affilation or ties with Barbourville High. In fact, I went to Knox Central but when it came time to choose for my children, I choose their best interest over my feelings of loyalty for a high school I went to. My kids are loved there, accepted,they do great on national test scores and college entrance scores. I could not be more pleased.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
