Taylor County is a very good school. The teachers don't accept bulling at that school. Taylor county doesn't teach over grade level. The only thing students should know is to Be Quiet In HallWays. I like that they don't work passed the grade level you are at. Our school could improve with cleaner bathrooms so students can't get sick as easy.

I have 4 children in this school. We moved here a couple years ago from the East coast - and this school is wonderful compared to what we came from. The teachers and staff are very caring. I'm glad we found TCES - and all my kids love it!!

no diversity in students or teachers.

I have one child in this school. I agree they need a bigger play area for as many children that are in this school. For me the biggest concern is the teachers have so many children that they cannot take their time with children that are having trouble in the classroom. They need more help in each class to deal with the number of children in each room. This would take the strain off each and every child and teacher. So if each parent would make that be known to whomever maybe they can do something about this on going problem.

I have two children who currently go to this school, and I don't care for it much at all. It seems that noone will listen to the parents, and too few parents are involved. They also have the littlest playground area for such a big school that I have ever seen. We are moving over the summer to insure that the kids attend a new school next year.

I have three children in this school and I am very pleased with this school overall. Two of my children have physical health issues and the school has been great in working with us all around in this area. The teachers follow through and work with us wonderfully in the children's academics.

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.

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.
