I love the fact that my two children are able to attend the Raceland-Worthington school district. I drive my kids to school every day but it is well worth the drive! I have no complaints wat all. I wouldn't allow my children to go to any other school. I would home school them before I would do that!

I live in the Raceland-Worthington School District. I am the second generation to go through this system. My children went through this system and now my grandchildren are attending. Both my parents went to school here. I graduated in 1963 as valedictorian. I have some college, but mostly had on the job training at all the places I have worked. I received an excellent education, and had no problem in getting employment even though I never attended college. In one job, I was selected over 3 other people with college degrees. My children received excellent education also. One of them has a learning disability and still this school system succeeded in educating this child. Today I have four grandchildren going through the system. Although they are all in the elementary schools, they are receiving a much better education than they could at some of the other schools in our area. We are a small district, but that is an advantage is many ways for educating little minds. Classrooms are not so crowded that little ones get lost in the shuffle. Most of the teachers are there because they want to teach and care about the quality of teaching they are giving to our next generation.

All I can say is that they have really great teachers and staff at the Elementary, but once you hit the Middle, it is really differnt. They wronged my son who has a disability. My kids would never step foot on their school grounds again.

I transport my child 50 miles a day to go to Raceland. I came from the Greenup District. I couldnt be more pleased.

Our academic is among the highest in our area. We have a wonderful music program and our sports program is the best in the area! We have several extracurricular clubs sports & non-sports. When Any of our kids participate in Any competition the Entire community is involved. Not just the people who are currently there, but all the past years Alumni are involved! Wonderful place to send your children. I moved back from Tampa, Florida just so that my 2 kids could experience the feeling that you get by attending Raceland-Worthington High School!

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.
