The school has come along way since the last reviews. A new princple this year and minor changes to other staff have greatly improved the school. My daughter went all 3 years there and she has no regrets.

It Is Ok But The Dress Code,Teacher Hours and every thing needs to bee improved


Posted February 15, 2009

ok to set things straight. R.M.S is not a bad school, people just say that about the school. the teachers are awsome and do care about the students. So don't be scared to let your child go here. Unfortunantly there are fights every now and then, but that happens in every school in hardin county!!!!!!

I would have to say that Radcliff Middle School has came along way. Last year there was alot of fights and this year I really havent heard of any. The teachers seem to be more caring in the eighth grade. I believe they have gotten rid of the students that need more discipline at another school since they werent getting it at home. They were to many interruptions with fights and drama from the students last year. Keep up the good work Radcliff Middle!

I think that Radcliff Middle is a very great school for children 11-14. It's system is very well in control and the teacher's are very into what thier pupils have to say and they care about thier futures.I rated this five stars!

I love Meadowview, especially since they got Mrs. Campbell as Principal who unfortunatly is leaving. My daughter has had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade. She is fabulous! If you email her, you will get a response that day, completely willing to above and beyond for each child, she really is amazing. My daughter has been off her meds for nearly a year with Ms. Gonzales' support and is doing great, Wonderful School!

No discipline, uncaring teachers, struggling leadership-the only good thing: the new principal has made a difference and continues to try to straighen out the school.

I think Radcliff middle school has worked really hard in the last 2 years. The students and falcuity work really hard each and every day to make this school a better place.

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.
