This school is terrible the food is so fat for children. The teachers don't even care for the students. Some teachers teach the subject and don't go into depth. Im doing the best to my abilities but the teachers seems not to care. Ill admit a few teachers were great but the rest are horrible! I am a conner student and think this school is horrible I can't even tell you. This school really needs to be reinovated because ceilings have brown spots and cracks. Many other things come to mind like the desk through my freshman year 10 desks broke they have profanity on them and vulgar things on it. I'd like to see this school be reinovated by the time my little brother goes to this highschool.

As a graduate of Conner, I feel that it is an adequate public school. There are several excellent teachers who challenge students to succeed. However there are also a significant number of largely apathetic and under-qualified teachers as well. If you schedule wisely you have the opportunity to have a very nice education, especially since they offer a large number of AP classes. However, I feel that even the most challenging classes at Conner did not prepare me for a top-tier private university, although I was able to adjust eventually. Outside of academics, many of the extra-curriculars are very good. The administration is very poor and far removed from parent and student concerns.

So far I am not impressed with the staff at all.... They have one opinion and that is it. Not willing to listen to parent or student. Principal needs to step up and realize these are young people he is dealing with and still in the learning mode. Some kids are slower than others so when they encounter a situation they should try and do a little research with the parent / guardian to find out a little about the student instead of tuning everyone out. I realize Conner has a large student population and is a big responsibility all the more reason the staff needs to be level headed and open their ears. Try some understanding instead of yelling... ask a few questions and listen instead of implying the student is a liar. Not a good impression for a first time student with learning difficulties. Really kind of sad!

Keep your distance if you have a child with low test scores, or has difficulties in reading comprehension. There are some staff members at this school that bully their way around meetings and have a "my way or the highway" attitude. They are unwilling to listen to a parents point of view when it concerns the education of their child. They are unwilling to work with the parent to find a compromise that is good for everyone involved.

This school is ok i guess, most of the classes aren't challenging even in the honors classes. Some teachers really work hard and try to help you succeed, but other teachers and faculty members are more of a bother, constantly looking down on as if your a nascence to them, which i feel is highly inappropriate. With all the construction going on at the moment its very hard to focus on learning in such an inappropriate learning environment. They tell us it wont effect us but if constant hammering and drilling doesn't then i don't know what does. Over all i feel its a very nice school, it has great potential, its just needs some weeding of particular staff members and a little motivation and i think it can be a great school, well greater than it is now

My son struggles in school and teachers through the years do not know how to teach and get through to him but all the teachers and staff at CHS have went above and beyond for him!! They have helped him so much to come so far!!

I have had some great correspondence with my child's teachers. I have not been impressed w/ the amound of homework. In 4 years my child will be attending college to fulfill her dreams. A full time student studies 40 hours a week. My child has no homework/ study skills to go on. Smart kids w/ no study skills don't succeed in college. So far she has not been challenged. School's scores might be reflected in such efforts. As a parent I would love to help. Sincerely, Rebecca Ortwein

I love attending Conner High School. I think it is a great school with a wonderful environment, even if it is overcrowded. So many students have wondrful school spirit, and the teachers want the students to succeed. With so many students, there is a wide variety of classes and clubs to suit almost any intrest. I have enjoyed my experience so far at Conner High School, and I am looking forward to spending the rest of my high school carreer there.

I believe Connor has the potential and the makings to be one of the best schools in the area. But I think that there are many problems with favoritism in the school. The students are treated according to who their parents or siblings are. This is so apparent in the extra curricular activities. The school does not do a good job of welcoming minorities and outsiders.

I am a past student at conner high school. As a student at Conner High School I always felt safe. The administration did everything in their power to see that we were safe at all times. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. At any time if i needed help it was at my fingertips, from needing comfort on a bad day to getting my trasnscripts sent to a college. This school has made lasting memories and i will not only take away the knowledge but also a piece of mind that I went to one of the best High schools ever.

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.
