Posted March 10, 2014

I am very disappointed in the education that my daughter has been receiving at this school. We moved into this school district at the beginning of the year and I told the teacher that she was advanced and what she had been learning from the other school. All year my child has been learning the same things that she had done at the other school so now she is behind in what she was doing. I tried to confront the teacher several times but each time meetings were cancelled. I now have a child that is frustrated and bored and does not want to go to school. The school does not show any interest in the children and seem to show a just for here for the pay check attitude. I have seen no extra activities for the lower grade levels such as plays, musicals, pj days, crazy sock day, nothing. I am so disappointed in the school and am embarrassed to even admit that my child attends here. I now am going to have to move again to put my child back into the school district that she was in to make sure that she receives the education that I feel she deserves. So disappointed!!!

What Bend Gate School means to my son and myself. We love it! The principal really tries to keep the students motivated and the staff is top notch. Although they are not perfect, they are constantly striving to improve. We also take advantage of the wrap around program and are extremely pleased with the staff in that department as well. Great Parent Teacher Association that is involved with an alliance between the school system and the best interest of the child. Check us out!

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.
