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.

    This school is filled with exceptional students and staff. Our current administration is so supportive of each teacher and understands the research-based educational tools needed for student growth. We have so many areas for the kids to shine in and out of the classroom. Whether it be our academic team afternoon clubs k-kids STLP group robotics club honors chorus and festivals orchestra or band students have the full support of staff and peers to branch out and display their individual talents and skills.

    I am in 9th grade now and I think that if it wasn't for the teachers there then I wouldn't have made it as far as I have. I know this doesn't have anything to do with what you want to know. I went to this school in 1st 2nd 4th and 5th. I loved every minute as far it is my fav. school. I had two of the best teachers. In 1st and 2nd I had Ms. Kidman. And in 4th and 5th I had Ms. Nash.
