My son hated the school he got stuck in this school Sanderville was full. The first time there I had a teacher screaming at me about where I parked my car I'm a adult . I was new so wasn't sure of how to pick my child up. They take forever to get the child out to the car half the time my son said he couldnt hear them call his name .They make them wait in another room. He didn't want to go he said the teacher scream at the kids I believe it after I got screamed at. His teacher wasn't invested.

They really invest in the kids. Every child is valued and encouraged to succeed.

because the teachers care about the students and they need money

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.
