Although Bourbon County Schools wasn't the ideal school for my child, we made it through the first year. One of the guidance counselor's, despite being in a cast for most of this pring, did an incredible job of helping my son find his place and activities that interested him. He doesn't learn by reading, as much as by doing, but the teacher's made allowances after the gc got to know our situation.

I think Bourbon County High School is a very poor excuse for a school. There is no discipline. My child has been in the Bourbon Co. school system since 1st grade and I have never been happy with the school system. I am in the process of looking for a better quality school.

i think that the academic program is great here at bourbon county high school the teachers are great and your child gets alot of 1 on 1 time with the teacher. Here the sports programs are great they include basketball, softball/baseball,football,cross country, track, wrestling, cheerleading, swimming and i'm sure more. The level of parent involvemetent is great with the P.T.S.A (parent/teacher/student/assioation is great.

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.
