We couldn't be happier here at Camden. We are a district transfer from Kenwood. Camden is such a warm environment I couldn't ask for a better place for my daughter, which is why we drive her to school every day just so that she can go there. This will be our third and last year as Eagles and I must say that I will miss it. Mr. Martin has been a wonderful principal and true asset to the school district.

We think Camden is a wonderful school. The staff is friendly and there love for the children is obvious to us parents and the children. We took our kids out of private school and moved to Oldham County for the schools and we couldn t be happier. The teachers are top notch and the parent participation is fantastic. The school has been over crowded but the teachers and the administrative staff has acknowledged the challenge and has worked around it with great success. If given the chance to go back and make any changes, we wouldn t.

This schools student enrollment is actually around 800. The school is very over crowded. However, the teachers and staff work very hard to make it the best situation possible.

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.
