I have a freshman at Bullitt East and so far I think it is agreat school. My daughter likes most of her classes, but doesn't like all the homework. I think she is getting a good education in this district. I also like that they have so many clubs for the teens. Strict dress code and I get grades sent to my phone with the parent portal app.

Teachers are nice..and if there is any questions or concerns all you have to do is call the board of education. They are working on the construction of the school now to help future students. All schools have cut back on funding projects due to the economy..Bullitt East is still a good school...maybe not the best but everyone learns just as our students are learning.

When we first moved to Mt. Washington we were concerned about the quality of education. From elementary to a freshman in HS I truly don't believe we could have made a better decision for our daughter. We have been impressed by the quality of teachers, principals, class content, facilities, parent involvement, and the level of interest my daughter has in school. The board of education is very active and progressive and there are a lot of additional enhancements, to the educational system, coming in Bullitt County. A small county that is on the move. I did not want my daughter going to school in Jefferson County - that system is a mess.

I think my daughters' education has been outstanding and I love the teachers and staff. They seem to really care for the students. There is also a family feel to the school and it seems to have a great group of kids attending there. Great Job!

I think that the administration is awesome and really cares about kids. I really appreciate their hard work and dedication to our community.

The principle and staff have a degrading type attitude towards the students. They basically place themselves above their students and parents. I've encountered three incidents with them and all three times they have gone on the offensive and simply have no concern for facts or their own behavior or actions. Dysfunctional. There is no need to talk down on parents or students in the simplest conversations, they actually elevate the circumstance to a conflict. There is no need for such aggression, they are suppose to be professional educators.

As a former student, I saw several principals coming in and out--almost every year I attended. I've never seen a school have so many problems.

I'm disappointed that this school focuses more on the quantity of assistant principals instead of quality. As a parent, it is important that I send my teenage daughter off to school and not have to worry about the environment she is in. However, with Bullitt East, it's an everyday concern. I'm looking into private schools now so that she may get to transfer and actually enjoy her high school years, what's left of them. This school needs to focus on their student body and if nothing else, at least pretend to care about what is going on. This school leaves much to be desired. I for one don't think the administration has what it's going to take to turn this school around. What really gets me, is that they deny having any problems at all.

I honestly do not think the school administration could care any less for their students. I do not believe that they make an effort to reach out and make a difference, nor do they attempt to keep parents informed. However, the teachers (not administration) I've come in contact with, seem to be doing their jobs fairly well. It is disappointing that the 'professionals' who represent a school could do such a poor job. Time after time (with my experience) they have failed to make even a small effort to protect their student body. I would expect more out of a school; unfortunately, this one doesn't seem to have any expectations for itself.

My son is autistic. He attended a private school for the first 8 years. I met the attendance clerk in town and she highly recommended BEHS for our son. She was so right. He has excelled academically and socially. He is now a senior and he will really miss the awesome support and integration that the teachers, counselors and staff have shown him. The student body has been nothing less than gracious and accepting. When we go into a local shop, and there are teens working, they always speak to our son. He has 'buddies' that sit with him in lunch, play ball and include him in physical ed courses, and genuinly accept him. We plan to donate some funds and contribute to it each year for the Special Ed at BEHS. It's an exceptional, inclusive environment, from top to bottom.

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.

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.
