My child has attended Brookside since the first grade. I have to say I can't wait to be able to get him out of there. There are maybe one or two decent teachers at this school. The rest really should find another career. They do not make the children or parents feel welcome there at all. Even the principal will not return phone calls when you call with a concern. They are just extremely lacking and very behind the times. I do not recommend this school at all.

Korbyn was very lucky to end up in Brookside's district, this school is like none other! The amount of energy that is put into these kids is very special, and it doesn't stop at school, the attention they draw from the family is great.

Brookside is a wonderful school. My son's teacher and I worked together to bring out the best in him. He has become a wonderful reader and creative writer. The Art teacher is wonderful; she gets all of the students excited about art. The community supports the schols's Art too by having an art show downtown that features the children's work.

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.
