This school does not prepare its students to succeed at a college or university as adequetly as other public schools do. The focus at this school is on sports instead of music or the arts. The small town politics of this county are played out in the school administration. That being said, any experience in life - including school - is what you (the student) make of it. If you are willing to put in the hard work, you can succeed. Also, good parenting skills will always go a long way, regardless of school.

I am not a parent at GCHS, but I have recently graduated from there and I believe it is a wonderful school. It is a school that is involved with it's students and a school that cares. To the parent who posted that their daughter failed... I'm sorry but I think it may have been your daughter's fault. The teachers are not bullys! It's a great school and I recommend for students to attend it.

Simply put: A terrible school! Bullying is a HUGE problem. There's money for football but none for books! My daughter failed 9th grade and she is a good girl so go figure. This year I will home school her.

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.
