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.

    I was a student at Cumberland trace back in the mid 70's and the school had high standards then. When I moved from Alvaton to CT district I was worried because Alvaton was a good experience. However CTES is higher than any expectation I could have. Teachers are top notched in training and experience. The teachers really do care about the children's learning and are very in tune making students feel empowered. Dr Evans runs a very tight ship and knows each and every move in the school.

    Cumberland Trace is a school where everyone that works there cares about the students and helping them succeed. I've never seen a school with so many people that really and truly honestly care about the pupils. Cumberland Trace in my opinion is the best school in Bowling Green KY. I wish my daughter was still attending there but she's now moved to middle school.

    Cumberland Trace is an exceptional school. The staff is incredible and Dr.Evans(principal) is the best. We have 4 children at this school and have been very happy.

    Compared to one of the other local schools we love Cumberland Trace. The area went thru redistricting and we were one of the areas that was affected. It is a blessing. We thought Briarwood was a nice school but Cumberland Trace is awesome. The pricipal is such a loving wonderful lady that keeps the children first. The school may be old but there is alot to offer inside. Spanish for primary students? Yes and they love it. Tiger Bucks are awarded as the children are recognized for good behaviors. The kids are then allowed to 'spend' their money in the 'store' set up with 'rewards'. I prefer this as to my child getting candy everyday for rewards. This school is just awesome. They are working on being more green and are really conscious of their surroundings. I just cannot say enough...

    I give this school 5 stars. THe pricipal Dr. Mary Evans is outstanding and know every little thing that is going on it that school. She is willing to go that extra mile for all the students she lets them know THEY are important and is there for them. The teachers are GREAT and go out of their way even after school is ended to help! I can not say enough!

    since my daughter has been attending this school her grades are not good .I have ask 3 or more times in the last month for feedback on my daughters scores. i havent gotten much feedback. I am a very upset parent and hope that something is to change. My faith in cumberland trace is not good. I am very very upset.

    Moving here from California this school is fantastic! The principle Dr. Mary Evans is A+. The academics are impressive and broad range. Assistance given regarding financial needs relating to music/field trips was so generous for my daughter and I (single mom). Best elementary experience my daughter has had. She loves Mr. Baxter (6th grade) band and chorus. Something is always going on/activities for the family/students i.e. school carnival yard sale fall festival book fair concerts etc... You just can't go wrong allowing your child to attend this school. Smaller school better attention given. Great teachers and staff helpful and caring. My hat's off to this school. I just wish my child could have attended all her elementary years here but we will take 5th & 6th grade and be thankful. Keep up the great reputation Cumberland Trace! Thank you to Dr. Mary Evans & PTA for your devotion.

    I previoulsy attended this school about 4 years ago. I have moved from place to place and so far this has been the best school. All of my teachers were really nice(specificly Mrs.McCrary). Your child will be sure to have a good education after after attending this school.

    I'm actually a student who went to Cumberland Trace for 6th grade (I'm now in the 8th)and I think that Cumberland Trace is a magnificent school with great teachers (particularly Mr. Baxter!)
