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 taught at this school for 11 years and I missed it every day. I even transfered my own child from an east end school to Young just because of the quality of the education that it's offered there. The school is now an International Baccalaureate Candidate school and I won't be surprised if it becomes the best school in Louisville KY

    I have taught at Y.E.S. for 7 years and I enjoy it a lot. The staff is willing to help you when you need it and care about the students. I care about my school. Submitted by Tabitha Southard Teacher
