I have seen some of the posts regarding bullying and the school not taking action. Last year my son was bullied on the school bus. The school took action by calling in the other child's parents, temporarily removing bus privilages for the bully, and then hosted classes regarding bullying behavior. They pretty much have a zero tolerance policy for bullying and I was very pleased with the way the school handled the situation. My son was and still is an A/B student. He has really enjoyed his classes and teachers, and I am happy with the education he has received. AP Math and AP English.

My son went to summit view elm. and was a A student.The first year he was bullied.Ilet the school know this.Nothing was done about it.He had to put up with this for two years.I went up there to talk to someone about this.I had to talk to the lady at the front desk.The principal or the v.principal would not talk to me.My sons grades dropped from straight A toC.He did'nt even want to go to school anymore.He never went to his locker and always waited till he knew all the kids were gone.I would nerver tell anyone to let their child go to this school.My son is in a better school now and is loving school again.

I am an 8th grader at SVMS and i will just say the last three years here have been some of the best! Their choir program is excellent and They are starting to offer so many things! I am a member of the dance team, and I am an A & high B student.I love SVMS and i highly reccomend attending here.

My child attends SVMS, our decision to have my child attend this school was for transportatin reasons. Just about all of the MS students in our neighborhood attend Turkeyfoot MS. This school has no support system at all. The asst Principal is a joke he is only riding out his time for retirement, the Principal is not much help at all, she only assisted with bullying when persuaded by the Supt of Kenton County. The education is subpar to say the least. Some of the teachers are helpful, certainly not all. Encouraged parent involvment is minimal. There are hardly any extra curricular activities at the school unless your an athlete. Peer pressure and bullying is a severe problem at this school.

Singularly unimpressed. Not sure it is the schools fault. Unfortunately no child left behind,also, means no child moves ahead. In my daughter's reading class the ability level ranges from 2nd grade to college. This is from the teacher. My daughter was tested at a 13th year reading level 2 years ago and is in a reading class where turns are taken reading aloud, this is 8th grade folks! Next year,...good bye public schools for my daughter. This formula may work well for those of lesser ability or motivation, but not for others.

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.
