Posted August 10, 2009

This will be the third year my two children have been enrolled at Burlington Elementary. All of the office staff have been extremely nice and helpful, the same can be said of the school nurse. The head monitor of the cafeteria needs to find herself a new job, it's clear she does not like children in the way she talks to them an treats them. The other two cafeteria monitors are friendlier. I have had no contact with the Principal but have with the Vice Principal and Guidance Counselor. They both seem to genuinely care about the students and are very nice, understanding, and helpful. My kids have had several awesome teachers here. We absolutely love Mrs. Ours, we could not ask for a better teacher!!!!

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.
