Though I am not a student at this middle school in Oldham County, I've heard bad things about Oldham County Middle School. From what I've heard, the school is full of bullies and mean girls. I've also heard that thier sports programs aren't good. Some say that this middle school is one of the best in Oldham county, but I know that's far from true. Olham County Middle School needs to discipline thier students more firmly.


Posted May 24, 2007

I am surprised they do not offer Foreign Language classes as we moved here from out of state where they had Spanish and French in Middle school. Also I had to order books off E-bay because they only have 30 books for all classes to share In Class for Social Studies, Science & Language Arts. At this age how can a child excel when they only have notes to study. There is just not enough time in a class to read from the books. Why not give parents an option to purchase books at the beginning of the year if there are money issues with the County. The sad thing to me is that this is one of the top Middle Schools in the County. I would hate to see the worse. One more thing I have to mention is the Tennis program was horrible.

We chose oldham county schools because of the great high standars; now that we are here it is a different story. We started the school year out with teachers in the hall and a no tolerance policy, now 18 weeks later there are no hallway monitors and we have kids getting hurt left and right. I almost wish we would have gone to jefferson county!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP 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.

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.
