As a former student and volunteer at Kenwood I have found Parents and Volunteers are not appreciated at the school nor welcomed. The atmosphere at the school is unwelcoming. The school did have many great teacher still has a few, many have left with the former principal dictating the way they taught and many other aspects of their job. With this person gone maybe the school will be a better place for all.

I am a former student from this school. I now attend Foster Academy. I went there for 3 weeks in fourth grade and all since kindergarden. The fourth grade year we switched classes and we had so many pages of homework. It was awful. But now that the princable is leaving it is going to be okay. Many staff members are leaving this school because of her and it shouldn't be this way! I highly reccommend moving your child until things get better!

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.

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.
