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.

    Beechgrove School has done an excellent job with my granddaughter Allie. This is her second year there and all she talks about is wanting to go to school she just loves it there. Thank you for helping her...

    My daughter has attended Pre-K this year and had some areas she needed improving on when she first began. With the teachers and aides assistance my daughter is mastering these skills and I'm very pleased. They have worked well with my daughter. She is very excited to go to school each day.

    Our son has attended Beechgrove for 3 years. We have been extremely pleased with the leadership of this school and for the most part with the teachers he has had. The music art and library teachers are a super plus to this school. He enjoys school and looks forward to going each day. The principal Mrs. Dunn is very hands on and expects a tremendous amount from the students. There have been a certain few teachers our son has been blessed to have along with Mrs. Dunn and her support staff; and I believe this is a huge reason for our son's educational success. Thanks for a great 3 years!
