i personally think it is not overcrowded. it has excellent teachers, and is all around a great school!

School is way overcrowded. Students get lost in the mix. Some great teachers however the administration is just treading water trying to stay ahead. More like a factory processing kids rather than teaching them. I have had 2 kids graduate from here and one currently attending. If the emphasis placed on athletic achievement was placed on academics things could be different.

As with all schools, there are excellent teachers and others that need to just find work elsewhere. School safety measures seem adequate. Poor art program, great band and choral programs, strong athletics. I have had two children in this school.

Scott County High School is really a great school. The academic programs are right wherethey should be. The teachers and counselors clearly have the students as their top priority. There are some weak areas which cannot be avoided when the human element is involved, but overall I could not have asked for a better school for my children to attend! Thank you Scott County Schools for my 2007 Graduate!

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.
