I really don't care for this school for so many reason. It seems to have a diversity problem when it come to what school your kid attends. Kids who live less than f3 miles from HHS or HMS are sent 5 miles to CCHS or CCMS.

I attended this school and now my son goes there also. My son has NEVER enjoyed school until this year. He LOVES going to school and the playing sports. The coaches keep a weekly check on grades and require those that need extra help to attend study hall before they can report to practice after school. The teachers have been great at staying in contact with me and suporting my son. He is even starting to set higher academic goals for himself.

As a former teacher in this school I am pleased to say I was a part of this staff. The staff was very well educated and very compassionate about the students. I would send my students there.

My oldest daughter entered middle school here 6th grade and incountered a drastic change in her lifestyle and perception of school, that is to be expected from a change with so much influence, she has been an honor student like clockwork from day one in kindergarden, up until this school year, we have incountered many challenges at this school.My daughter has overcome 90% of the hurdles in her way, my advise to all parents would be keep in constant contact. Communicate with the school staff(teachers,guidence councilers, and principals)and stay involved. Most of all support and incourage your childern. Middle school is a milestone to say the least. I trusted my daughter and it amazed me how she just showed me what she was capable of fixing and maintaining.

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.
