Posted July 1, 2010

I had 2 children go here since kindergarten. They both were in 'gifted and talented' programs. The teachers treated every child as their favorite student. And though my youngest (who just graduated 5th grade) was in the accelerated programs, he has ADHD tendencies (I do not dryg him). And the school was able to juggle his 'special needs' while recognizing his advanced academic abilikty. The teachers are very family oriented and the principal is a very professional caring lady. I highly reccommend this school for those seeking the small town experience. Tiny town, great country atmosphere, Amish buggys and all, with a GREAT school.

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.
