I have heard others in the community talk about how great this school is, but I have to disagree . My son has been going there for 2 years. Kids have bullied him almost daily, but the staff does nothing. They talk about being against bullying, but do nothing even when it is right in front of them. One of the teachers even told me that the group of bullies have been that way for years and they even bully her and it's hard to get them to stop now. The kids never have homework, even though my son is in 7th grade. The same teacher told me they don't want the kids to have homework to worry about when they might have to watch their younger siblings when they get home, might not have any dinner, and their parents might not be able to help them with their schoolwork. I understand some kids are from a disadvantaged background, but I don't think this is the best way to help.

This is the top level school in Frankfort. My grown children went to this school and now I have a first grader and a kindergardener. I'mm throughly impressed with the level of one on one and classroom teaching. I'm looking forward to many years of my children attending and benefiting from the top rating of this school

When we moved to Frankfort everyone raved about other schools...and told us to steer clear of SSS due to socio-economic stereotypes. They couldn't have been more wrong. SSS is a terrific school with involved staff, lots of school events, and communication with parents. (I have email/cell #'s of my child's teachers, unheard of in other schools!) My daughter came to SSS with serious academic deficiencies. Thanks to the staff at SSS (and lots of hard work from her and myself) she has made amazing progress. My daughter now looks forward to going to school each day. :) Don't believe the rumors about SSS being sub-par or avoided. There is a waiting list of out of district students willing to pay tuition to get in. You can verify that through their central office like I did if you want to. SSS is a great school. I'd recommend it to any parent without hesitation.

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.

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.
