My daughter attended this school for only 3 grades Before she was threatened by a 5th grader that she was going to kill her! Luckly, that one student did not show up the next couple of days! Also my daughter has been through a ton of bullying, but the teachers and staff did nothing. If you do go here I would suggest you see how horrible it is for yourself!

The teachers at Cochrane have provided our daughter with tremendous opportunities and an environment to excel far beyond her current grade level. The new media center is providing enrichment opportunities for students who may not be afforded the same opportunities at home. We are excited about the collaborative approach taken by teachers to partner with parents in their children's education. Extra-curricular activities (music, dance, sports, etc.) are continuously being added and improved, providing great opportunities for children to get more involved and develop talents and much needed social skills that will prove invaluable later in life. The only criticism we have is regarding the removal of the CEP program. This program provides onsite before and aftercare care through the YMCA of Louisville. With the removal of this program, children still in need of these services must go to another school site and then ride the bus to Cochrane. As the parents of an elementary age student, we would prefer not to have her ride a bus just for childcare purposes.

We are pretty content with Cochrane. It is clear that most teachers love what they do, and there are a few (luckily) of them that shouldn't be in the education field. Principal is a good leader, but I think she could do so much better. The weakness of the school is the poor parent involvement. Some parents just participate in school activities for the free food, and they do not seem interested in doing anything else. I think these parents need to be taught the virtue of giving back. I like the new library, I hope the kids have plenty of oportunities to use it for educational purposes.

I like Cochrane because is convenient. So far the Teachers we had come across are nice. The coach of the cross country team is a super Dedicated person that loves what he does and And loves the children. One of the things That I like about Cochrane is that the principal is really invested In the school, she attends the sports meets, she personally Greets the students at the entrance and what my kid loves the most About the principal is the fact that she rewards good Behavior by having lunch with those well behave students. What I don't like about the school Is the fact that The staff is so friendly, the teachers are nice and So is the principal. But for some reason they don't think To be syncronize. Overall, Cochrane is a good work that I recommend.

This a small school, located in a safe area in J-Town. The principal is a very personable and caring person. The kind of principal that greets the students during morning carline. The school has a diverse group of teachers, and it offers special education programs. The school has a brand new library! You won't miss it when you visit the school. Basketball and Cross Country are the most popular sports at Cochrane.

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.
