My school serves the exact same lunch menu every two weeks. Not only is is distasteful, but the portions served do not meet up with the required portions according to the National School Lunch Program. Elementary age children get the same portions as do the high school students. The students in high school are required to pay around $2 for a meal at the school, but if they just wait, they could pay the same price at McDonalds for 3x the serving size, providing a more filling meal.

We have a great school here with above average teachers who not only teach but connect with the students. However, what does it matter what color a student's hair is? Hair cuts can be just as distracting. Will they ban that also? What's the point of making a rule that students can't dye their hair unnatural colors? Why put a limit on the individuality of students? Trigg is an excellent school, but like everything it has it's flaws.

The school system is pretty good with a wide variety of after school activities, but now they have started the Freshman Academy which keeps them away from the upper class. This contributes a lot of controversy ranging from the bell schedules to when you go to lunch, but other than that I think that it is a pretty good school.

This school has some great teachers who will offer the students puzzles and challenge the minds of those who are gifted. To name a few: Donna Carter, Robbie Shelby, Coach Burcham. But, do not allow the humble image cast a fake view infront of your eyes. This school deals with great problems with drugs and gangs, racial tensions.

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.
