Great teachers! They have excellent extracurricular activities for the kids including several dances, school spirit events and wonderful talent shows. The percussion teacher was amazing! We moved away but will remember the great experiences we had there.

Great school. Academic programs are excellent, with availability of accelerated programs. Athletic programs are very good, and widely supported by students and parents/ Very competitive! Especially well-noted are the Cross Country and Track teams.

NOMS cares more about scores then the safety of the students. I would say 30+ students cross HWY 1793 evey day from neighborhoods and they still will not put a cross walk in. It's only a matter of time before a child gets hit. On another note, NOMS has wonderful teachers. They really care about the kids and their education. I can't say the same for the school board. Your kid is just another number to them and saftey is not a concern. I would recommend this school but watch out for the snobs

I don't like this school at all. It's not welcoming, it's full of snobby kids, and they are greedy about the money. It's not a place to send your kids. So if you are given any other option, don't come, it will make you wish you were where ever you came from, I have for 2 years. I can't wait to graduate and get out.

I do not like north oldham middle school! i have gone there for all my years of middle school, the education is great! but the kids are horrible. The kids there are unwelcoming to new kids, bratty rich snobs and the only thing the principal cares about is the money and the test scores being better then everyone else. The teachers say there want students to be in a safe environment. If they wanted us to be safe and welcomed then the kids would have manners and not make fun of other less fortune kids. If your kid is a sweetheart and is an angel. Don't let then go to north oldham middle school. The kids there will tear your innocent child to bits and pieces. Like they all do to me. I just wanted to warn all of you smart parents. :)

Looks better on paper. Student-teacher ratio 18:1-not same as class size. Some have 30 students. More structure would go a long way. Accelerated classes based on 1 or 2 test scores-grades do not factor in. This divides students-smart/not so smart.

north oldham is a very good school for academics but the people there can be mean and snobby i've been there three years and nothing has changed. it has a some what negative envoroment

While interested in continuing my childs academic career in a public school forum, I find the level of academics at North Oldham to be less challenging for our child compared to elsewhere in the nation. We have recently moved to Kentucky and have found that the public education is substandard to the level found elsewhere in our nation. The staff is wonderful, however we wish the children were challenged to prepare them for their college careers ahead. (even in middle school)

This school is filled with wounderful equipment such as computers and projectors. The teachers are all awesome

Yes the school acedemically is passable, but be prepared to deal with snobbish Parents and kids that have never been told no. You will find if you are not part of the upper class and do not wish to vounteer for every envent then you will not fit in.

The teachers are committed to the students success and it shows. Dr. Brooks is a great addition to the North Oldham team.

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.

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.
