I disagree with all the negative reviews on this school. Now, the school is the best school I have ever been there. I LOVE Bernheim. I have made lots of friends. I love my teachers and all my fellow students. There are no drugs or bullying in my grade. The teachers try their best to make learning fun. Granted, there are a few strict teachers. You find them everywhere though. Bernheim works hard to make their students great. Our test scores have greatly improved. My parents also love the school. Te staff listens to parents and respects their ideas. I am personally proud to be a Bruin! ( I am in seventh grade)

I have gone to this school for 2 years. We used to hav bad test scores, but we have definately improved. I think we will get even better. It is definately better than the other schools in this district.

I also go to bernheim middle and I agree, the teachers are very strict and the principle gives us little freedom. we have a strict dress code and we are not allowed to bring our backpacks to class. the teachers do not make the education very fun and treat the students very poorly.

Bernheim Middle School has impressed us so much over the last 2 years. Our test scores are the best in the county. My child excels and there is great opportunities there for him.

My children attended Bernheim Middle last year. My husband and I did not like how our children were treated; they do deserve a little freedom since they have always been elite students and are involved in many school activities. This school does not cooperate with us as parents. Also in conferences the teachers treated my husband and myself like we were morons. I do think that I know my children's personalities a bit more than his teachers and principals. Instead of confronting problems or explaining them to parents they gossip about them to other teachers in front of other students. I hope if your child goes to this school that you all will have better experiences than we did.

I go to this school and instead of the parent's thoughts, I thought you'd like the students point of veiw. I love my school. Yes, my teachers are sometimes strict, yet they provide educational learning and the make it interesting and fun. I love how the teachers in the school, instead of reading from the textbooks, sometimes they use visuals, such as overheads and televisions. I have so many friends here. Friends are important to a teenager's social life. I'm a 7th grader and I love my school. Bernheim Middle 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.

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.
