Woodford County is a 5-star school in all respects- academic, athletic and social. I have been a parent representative on the Site Based Decision Making council for the past 2 years and I can attest to the fact that the school is led by an outstanding administrator, Principal Rob Akers. The level of care and concern for ALL students is shared by the teachers and administrators. I am as impressed with the plans that are in place for those needing additional services as I am with the level of expertise with which the Advanced Placement courses are taught. From an athletic perspective, the teams have great coaches and focus on the student athlete. From a social perspective, there are regular Club meeting days, awesome student assemblies and an in-house Prom that is the highlight of many Juniors and Seniors' social experience (both the decorating for and participation in it!) Woodford County is focused on helping students become career or college ready and it is no surprise that they have been ranked as a "school of distinction" in the state.

Small town school that needs some love. They put all of the money into the elementary and middle schools and yet the High school needs the most work and gets none.


Posted August 1, 2013

This school could really use $5000 dollars, I would hope that if they won it they would use it to improve the school. It is a very old school that needs some work. They really need a new high school in this town but it hasn't happened yet and from what I hear it wont for a while. The kids here deserve a school they can be proud of. They have had a state winning baseball team year before last and last year they had several state placers for wrestling including a state Champion who went on to win a national title. The school is producing students with a lot of potential to do great things for this state and this world yet they are in a school that really needs some improvements. It could only help to win $5000 to put towards the future of this area- Our children!

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.
