I hate this school I was filmed and beat up and the staff done NOTHING she got away with it that is just starting off with this school they do not explain what you are suppose to do in the work they give you they give it to you and expect you to do it without any knowledge of the subject!! I hate this school I was bullied everyday please do me a favor and do not let the liberal staff here trick you into thinking it is a good school because is isn't the girls there threatened to cut my hair (witch goes all the way to my bottom) they threatened to cut it to my ears they are out of control!

Although this school has not met NCLB the teachers and staff are continuously learning and implementing new ideas to help their students be more successful

This school is WONDERFUL. Before I moved to another school up north, I'd learned so much here. The quality of teaching content is so much more in-depth than what I am currently learning in my new school. This school has awesome teachers and a wonderful work environment. Compared to my new school, it was an amazing experience to go to Grayson County Middle. It's got to be one of the best schools in Kentucky.

this is a very great school. I am the Lady Cougar Basketball team and they have a great coaching staff that are all committed. The teachers are great and explain all assignments very well. Grayson County Middle School is the best middle school in the state.

This is a great school with overall an excellent core of teachers. My daughter has enjoyed all 3 years here and has had excellent coaching as well. The basketball coach is an excellent attribute to the school.

Well to start off im a student. The Teacher quality is very poor. The Teachers dont realy teach but just mildly explain things. They had students homework and except them to do it without explaining it. This is a poor school. Im ashamed to go there.

Posted November 9, 2005

Well to be realistic, I rate the teachers here very highly in all studies. It's procrastinating parents who should be a help to the school and staff instead of tearing them down. The special kids and migrant kids program is wonderful. The scores are coming up. Good job to all the staff at GCMS. Keep up the good work and don't listen to those who can't be made happy and can only seem to tear down diligent and wonderful efforts.

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.
