I personally just graduated from this school and I happen to think it's a great place of education


Posted July 16, 2009

I'm currently a senior at Todd Central and I have been here all my life. I never though I'd get this far in life. This school is not a place I can learn in. I've had better yrs for example my freshman yr Math teacher would not give up on the students the teacher would work on the board tell every single one of us has got it down pat. But I'm willing to work my rear end off and hopefully I'll exceed. But the school needs to change first. By being better then they have ever been but not so tuff either.We need a school system that is willing to listen to there students and help us when we need the help.Theres some teachers there that are willing to do it but theres some that not. Thanks for listening to my review.

This school has been good so far. The teachers are helpful all you have to do is ask. The one problem I have with it is some areas where the administration has failed to do their job. Planed events are not very well organized and the guidance counselor is hard to work with because she wont help you unless you are a senior, but sometimes you need help before that and there is no where to get it.

i don't like this school at all, i rather go to Logan County High School, or Russellville High School. Todd County Central High School doesn't offer Nursing School, useless you are in the Trade School Program and not everyone can get in the Trade School Program.

I have worked at 4 different public schools and this one by far exceeds the rest! The kids are great, the parents are helpful, and the teachers work very hard. Anyone who is unhappy at Todd Central clearly has not attended another public high school.

The science department needs work, but as a graduate, and a student at UK, I feel I was well prepared in english and definitely in math. I am well ahead of other students in both areas. The education at TCCHS was not bad by any means, it is what you make it. Those people who complain about their educations obviously did not utilize all the resources. Bottom line, if you don't do the work, you won't reap the benefits.

I was un prepared for college after my 4 years. I realized that i got preferential treatment because of my parents social status. That was all fine and good, but when i got out in the real world, i realized how valuable my education was... which was not worth much. I think TCCHS needs to be reorganized from the ground up.

Both of my siblings attended this school, just as I did a few years ago. I believe that students should be treated as equals to one another, which hasn't and doesn't occur at this school. There have been numerous occasions where one student would get away with something that another student would get into trouble for. Thankfully my sister willbe graduationg this year.

Everything about this school has killed the educational system. It has fully been forced to my attention that this is lacking everything from Arts to Computor science.

The school offers a wide variety of curriculum from the basics to Music and theatrics. The sports program is well known within the state and is seen as a formidable competitor. The parents and community Fully support the academic and extracurricular activities within the 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.

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.

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.
