Overpaid, under-qualified teachers drawing twice the normal starting pay of most school districts within the state of Kentucky lacking the drive and skill necessary to educate some of the poorest children in the nation so they might escape the cycle of dependency these same teachers grew up in, but only achieved some success of comfort through family ties at the tax payer expense while doing little to bolster the community as a whole and expending as little effort as possible to maintain their employment. The school is an educational train wreck rolling down the tracks of apathetic ignorance and taking several generations with it and should be avoided at all cost if not completely shut down and disbanded. Illiterates teaching illiterates while to property owner is milked to foot their unearned paychecks while the children languish at the bottom of the educational barrel. It's a mockery of mockeries ...

If you want an illiterate child then this school is the perfect place for them. Nearly all the teachers are family or family by marriage and nepotism is rampant. They don't teach cursive handwriting and most graduates can barely print their names... YOU SHOULD SEE HOW THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE CONSTRUCT A SENTENCE LET ALONE SPELL... you would understand quickly why I have every intention of removing my children from this welfare nest where the teachers are paid an average of 50,000 dollars a year to do nothing.

I have two children at McKee (2005) and I have been well pleased with their performance and treatment at McKee. Currently the school is being renovated (much needed) and that is not the best for all the children, but in the long run it will be positive.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
