This is a great school. Both of have children have or are attending. Never had any problems. Just love the teachers and staff. They will work with you and your child to make sure that they are doing the best that they can.

They go by there own rules.If you point out something that you think your child is having problems in and they dont feel that they need extra help then they say 'dont worry about it'.Then when the child is entering the end of a school year the school all of sudden wants to hold them back because they are having to much trouble.If they cant listen to the parents of a child and try and talk about what they see then they dont need to be teaching.No one knows a child better then there parent

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.
