I think North B High School is a great school as well as the Teachers and Principals.However they can carry only so much of a load. Do to the number of students per class creates a tremendous case load on each and every Teacher. I believe that if a Camel had all the feathers it could pack, It would be impossible for it to carry one more feather.Let us make our School system the greatest in the world reduce the student count in each classromm to a manageable number, and quit the testing testing testing untill the students have memorizes the answers and finally get a score the system can live. Give the Teachers case load that she/he can manage and start teaching our kids something.other than go to school and get stupid.

I am a student at North Bullitt High School and I cannot stand that school. It is soo crowded and alot of pressure. Pressure in high school is normal but there are things that need to Change. I cannot stand any of the counsilers or teachers. It dosent even seem like they try to make it a good school.

I'm a senior at North Bullitt High School and feel it is the best high school in the county. I'm not at all school spirited but the teachers are all willing to help and are concerned for you. Over the summer my AP English teacher had us e-mail them about how our summer work was going. They want you to succeed. Like any school, students are the ones who create the drama, teachers and staff do what they can to prevent fights and such, but every school has those. If you want to feel like you pushed you shouldn't take the 'easy classes'. Overall, how the student behaves and how they make their decisions directly corresponds with the level of learning that is received. Also, NBHS tries to correspond with the parent, teachers will even e-mail the parents. Lack of involvement can't be thrown at the school.

I graduated from NBHS in 2007 and I will send my kids to this school. It is a wonderful school. I graduated the Valedictorian of my senior class and was also senior class president. I could not have achieved any of this without the help of the teachers. They were truly my best friends. I still talk to some of them, and some even help me with my college work from Bellarmine University. I would recommend this school to anyone. Plus it is a small school so you feel more like a person than just a number. You have many opportunities to get involved at this school you just have to take them. I would North Bullitt an A+ and this is because of the staff. Thanks for my wonderful experience!

NBHS was a great school for me. i graduated in 05 and was a member of the football team for my four years. the school is great and so are the teachers. they offer many clubs and many sports for those who are interested in such things. the facilty at NBHS are careing and will listen to students and parents about whatever. there could be more parent involvment in the school but im sure thats with all schools due to the lack of parents that care what their child is doing around here. but everthing else is A+

I graduated North Bullitt in 2004 and both of my little brothers attend right now. Although it has its flaws like most schools it is mostly little things. I enjoyed my time very much there. I played football and the coaches were great and really cared for you. The teachers were genuine and helpful. The principle is very good at what he does. It is not at all like most schools in Jefferson County. It is more controlled and overall a much safer place to learn.

I am a student at North Bullitt. Honestly this is one of those kinds of schools so bad it makes you wanna drop out! Too many fights, drama, and way to much talk about drugs. Believe me I live through it. I am moving schools too. This is no place you want to go.

I agree that there is not enough parent envolvement in this school, but trust me it is not because parents dont want to get involved. I am a singel parent and I work long hours. I can not remember the last time I got anything in the mail from the school for a P.T.A. Meeting or anything!

North Bullitt needs better leadership and teachers that care about teaching and not just making their next pay-check.

I'm going to be a junior next year and right now i hate school but i think that's just because i know that summer is coming soon. i think that overall north bullitt would be a great place for parents to have there kids go to alothough i would change some things if i could such as racism. other then that though i will miss school alot.

I am a student at North Bullitt and I hate the school. The schools thrives on sports and other teams. We are extremely over crowded and I, personally, am pushed, shoved, and sometimes steped on, simiply trying to making it to my next class. There are teachers who don't care if you make out in the hallways in between classes, jus as long as you aren't late to class. I guess overall what I am trying to say is North Bullitt is an aweful school and I would NOT recommend it to anyone!
—Submitted by a student


Posted February 19, 2005

i think more control in the hallways is needed,have seen kids doing alot in halls that dont belong in the schools,such as kissing and acting as if out on a date. this is school not a make out point. overall i think the teachers do a good job. i think they need more money to run the classes.i do feel my child is safe at school, and this alone is a good thing. id like to thank all the teachers for giving my child what she needs to move on with her live .i feel they do care if my child is learning what they need.

I am also a student at north bullitt and it is very over crowded. That is the only problem I have found with it. There a lot of great teachers and everyone there cares about leanring and trying to do well. If only there was more room it would be a better learning experiece its just to crowded. But it is better then most high schools.

All though it has it's flaws is a pretty good school. The discipline is adequate but may at time interrupt the pupils learning process and education. Teachers are willing to listen to what the students, parents and everyone else have to say. This doesn't mean much to me but NBHS has high tests scores and performance levels.

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.
