This is the 2012-2013 and Silver Grove School is still ranked second from the bottom of public schools in Kentucky . From the first review in 2007 it still hasn't seen any improvement. How much longer can the children in this town suffer from a school that shows no improvement? The tax rate is one of the highest paid to a public school. There are numerous homes for sale in this small town that are not moving because of the high tax rate and poor school performance. No young couple wants to buy because of these factors. Who wants to pay high taxes to a failing school? The small town where everyone knows everybody is great, but do you really want to sacrafice your childs education for that?


Posted August 6, 2012

Silver Grove continues to cut everything while raising the community's taxes to the highest in the state. The performance is one of the lowest in the state. The extracurricular activities are almost non-existent. There are no clubs, AP classes in the High School, Music, travel is almost gone, our second grade teacher was cut and discipline is out of control because of the kids that are basically left to their own devises at home. Nearly everyone that can afford to pay tuition sends their kids to other schools including the staff.

It is small. Excellent teacher student ratio. Its easy to be involved as a parent, and the teachers are excellent. Both of my children attended Silver Grove PK-12. They had a great experience and received a great education. They were able to play any sport they wanted. It's a great small town to live in and grow up in, and its safe.

Silver Grove- works with the parents.. As long as the parents do their part to. It is called team work.........

After reading the reviews posted and seeing the high ratings given by some, I feel compelled to respond. As past PTO President and an involved parent of three children at Silver Grove Schools, I have been very disappointed in the lack of principal leadership and parent involvement. I will agree that there are some excellent teachers and staff, but many of the students lack any discipline which affects the overall safety and quality of education in this small school. Silver Grove is an independent district that ranked second to last, in the state, in CATS testing. Extracurricular activities are minimal at best.

Silver Grove is a school in which there have been great strides taken toward returning the school to where it should be in terms of both academic achievement and school pride. After several years in which there was a stagnation that occurred within the staff, children, and parents alike there is a new administration and a, in general, new teaching core as well. These teachers have advanced degrees and a zest and desire to teach both want is mandatory in the curriculum and what is necessary for modeling. This school will be moving forward and upward in both its academics and in its relations with the community

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.
