Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT)

In 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. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

    My daughter has been a student at Crabbe Elem. for 3 years. It has been a wonderful experience for us. The staff at Crabbe is caring hard-working and professional. They make sure their school has a positive atmosphere and is inviting to students and parents. The principal and teachers make sure each student is treated with respect and as an individual. My daughter is a bright child and her teachers have made sure she is challenged and works at her highest capacity. My daughter has learned not only things that matter academically but acceptance of others and about diverse cultures. Crabbe has a great PTO in which I was able to work with. They also have a super after school program that my child enjoyed. We could not ask for a better school and I look forward to 4 more years at Crabbe Elem.

    We love Crabbe! Our daughter has attended this school for three years and has absolutely blossomed academically socially culturally and emotionally. The faculty and staff are actively involved in the children's education and care and encourage each one as they are where they are. Crabbe has a widely-diverse group of children who are treated equally. My daughter has been raised to believe that as we learned in VeggieTales 'The inside is the part we're supposed to care about.' This school lives it! Academically the school's scores improve every year but what the children are additionally taught is even more important than what can be measured by testing.

    What a wonderful school! I attended Crabbe and now my child is there getting the same love and attention that I remember so well. The teachers really like their work enviroment and staff is beyond words. I couldn't have made a better choice for my child. It's nice to have peace of mind when I see my child climb on the bus with a big smile everyday!!
