I graduated from Livingston in 2008. Education is mediocre. It always seemed to me like most teachers were more worried about gossip. If you weren't related to some of the teachers or the teachers didn't know your parents you didn't have a chance. And seriously no football STILL? Livingston county education system needs someone to access the financial situation to make that happen. Only teacher I can recall learning from was Doris Cothron and I believe she has retired.I am not proud that I graduated from there. I wish I would have switched to Marshall county or Mcracken.

I am a parent, whom currently has a child attending Lone Oak, and 2 at Sharpe. I wanted them attending here, but everything I put together; it won't happen. Education is sub par and no football team... Get a football team in the next 3-4 years, I'll enroll a future area star. Get curriculum up, especially in technology, I'll enroll s future electronics tech and future computer tech/programmer. Otherwise, I can't subject my children to less, when more is nearby.

I lived in Livingston County most of my life. I graduated from there and my oldest child graduated from there in 2000. I think the education was mediocre, at best. I have since moved away from there. My youngest child is a sophmore and is attending a school in another district. The differences are astounding! Livingston does not offer much at all to keep the students interested in attending school. For example; various extracirrucular activities and technology. The school seems not involved with the constantly changing times. Maybe the drop-out rate would not be so high if the students were not so bored. LCHS really needs an upgrade in what they have to offer the students. Livingston County is a beautiful place to live, but the schools in this district really need to shape up!

i am a student at livingston central and i belive that the only thing we should add to our school is technology...yes we do have some, but not like what most schools have. i feel that our community is affraid of technology and we need to have a specialist gome in and teach our teachers how to use new technology to help better the students understanding of what the teachers are trying to teach...i also think we could seriously use a football team!

Please check on drop out rates at this high school. The administration is covering up the actual drop out rate to receive special funding etc.

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.
