This is school is terrible they do not watch the children every well at all. My son came home with a huge bruise on him and no one at the school can tell me what happened. I feel like there is no one there watching these children. My son's teacher will only send home negative things about him. He has never had anything positive said. My son transferred to this school after we moved here for my husbands job. The school he came from he was a perfect student and never got into trouble for over two years there. Not here my son gets strait A's and is in trouble all the time. Big Questions on this school in my eyes. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

My child attended this school the teachers there were always prepared to keep the students willing to learn. They had small class-rooms so the kids could pay attention. I liked everything about this school.

This school does work with the students. I have two children that attend but there can be approvements with the learning challenged. I have a son who has problems with reading he's in the second grade and still can't read that good like his peers. The school is albout the sports and math team.

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.
