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.

    Good teachers but principal is a dictator. She is only concerned about test scores and her career mobility. Discriminates against special needs kids. Autocratic oppressive environment for teachers. High teacher transfer rate. Can't wait to get out of there.

    Ramsey's ok. It could be worse but it could also be much much better. 6th grade I would have to say was my best year 7th grade was eh and so far so is 8th grade. Expect more homework every year. There is some drama and not a lot of bullying and for the most part all the kids get along which is what I like about it. 2/3 of the teachers overall are pretty good. My 6th grade teachers where awesome I liked my 7th grade teachers but 8th grade my teachers are ok and they're getting better. I hate how 6th and 8th graders are treated the same. Some teachers are more lenient than others. But we have to walk in a line and travel with the same kids to each class. We get 1 locker break and 2 bathroom breaks with our class and honestly I had more freedom in 5th grade than I've had in middle school. I feel very unprepared for high school though. The coaches for some sports teams are awful and where the worst seasons I've ever had. I would honestly reccomend Ramsey as a 2nd choice school. They defiantly haven't been the best 3 years.

    Ramsey is a pretty good school. They stress a whole lot about test scores though. They don't have a huge problem with bullying they had some issues last year that are history now; but some of the kids can be down right rude and mean but most of the kids are nice. Most of Ramsey's teachers and staff are awesome they really care about us and they push us to our best ability. Ramsey has an amazing orchestra (i'm a part of it 1st violinist) the orchestra teacher is awesome I'd say the best orchestra in JCPS. Ramsey has a growing number of sports and clubs; more than some schools have.My favorite would have to be drama club. I have really made some memories with the drama club not to mention the performances are amazing! Overall I would recommend Ramsey to incoming 6th graders and my tip for them is don't base a school selection on friends you will make plenty of new ones wherever you go!
