My child started 6th grade in 2008 and has an IEP. They have been so supportive with his needs. The teachers and resource teacher Ms Relford has been great!! Thank You

Their gifted and taleneted Cluster is a pool of about 50 per grade that are 2-3 years above the normal grade. They score in the 1120-130 range.

I taught at Winburn for several years. There was one thing I noticed the first day I was there: it has a lot of heart. Throughout my time there, I came to realize the depth and breadth of that heart. You will find no other place where the teachers work so hard and the students are cared for so dearly. I can say that with absolute certainty. Winburn faces many challenges, but it's an extremely special place. I am proud to be forever a Warrior.

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.
