This school plays politics too much and uses the positions to get ahead or to move on up the latter rather than to further education. Try to be inventive without thinking about the fundamentals of basic teaching methods and models. Too much fluff, entertainment and Admin. B.S.!

Our school has a family hometown feeling. The whole community gets involved in sporting events and special activies going on at school.

I am very proud of this school, they are great! I would not let my kids go any where else, they handle every situation the right way, makes no difference who you are

I honestly believe that in leaving a school that you appreciate more about it. I recently was forced to leave it and attend another school and have found that the student body and Lincoln is all over better. The staff is also more understanding- the teachers at the school I now attend are careless and the teachers at LCHS work with you no matter what to help you in whatever you need, be it homework OR personal problems.

Could be a much better school. Was amazed that students tents would have to pay to be on a sports team or to partcipate in extracurricular activities. School rules are selectively enforced.

Education at Lincoln County High School is not valued inasmuch as what weight is applied to football and the like. Academics are not held in high regard, while athletes with suffering grades and little or no motivation are. The teachers are, for the most part, apathetic; there are very few AP and honors classes that are offered, and those that do want to take them often can't because there is 'not enough interest'; and the environment reeks of awarding mediocrity. In short, those that wish to truly achieve something and become a valuable member of society are hard-pressed to nurture this desire in the environment created at Lincoln County High. All in all, it was the worst educational experience of my life.

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.
