Big jewel at this school is there impressive Speech and Academic teams. Both teams are always great! These teams always put on a great show once a year too. From Aladdin, to The Christmas story. If you love the arts this is the school for your child. No other school can compare in the region. Both of these teams are always winning State competition. Competing with schools with a lot more money. But, then again I went here when Ms. C. Ashley and Sharon Roberts coached. Not to mention it is the only school in 100 of miles that have some very impressive Alumni including now famous actress and Model Rebecca Gayheart (Scream 2,Beverly Hills 90210)

My daughter just started school and the entire staff has made her feel so welcome. She feels at home here and is learning so much already. She loves it here and made me promise that for any reason we move that she'll still get to go to Carr Creek. Keep up the great work Carr Creek!!!

its a good school. does not have very much money though, so they lack a lot of normal things most school have. If they had more money they would be a great school:)

Carr Creek is truly an awesome school. Their Student Technology Leadership Program was named the 2006 Kentucky State Champions. The team traveled to San Diego, California in July to represent the state at the National Educational Computering Conference. The Speech Team ranked 7th in the state and their Academic team had members advanced to the State Competition. The staff of CCE is wonderful. At Carr Creek, No Child is Left Behind. The school has a large Media Center, Computer Lab and Science Lab.

Carr Creek is a very good school. The teachers there do a great job. I really appreciate the way Carr Creek is doing away with all the junk food and trying to show the kids the healthy way to eat and exercise.

Carr Creek Elem. has one of the best academic programs in the county. We have an award winning speech team, one of the top STLP teams in the state (they just won numerous state awards), and one of the finest teaching staffs anywhere. There are numerous sports to choose from such as basketball, football, gymnastics, cheerleading, baseball, and volleyball. We are currently envolved in a pilot program envolving exercise and nutrition. Our teachers are willing to go the extra mile when a child needs help. Overall Carr Creek is a wonderful place to be!

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.

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.
