Kentucky End of Course Assessments (EOC)

Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2013-2014, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

    This school employs some of the most caring staff in the country. the faculty is always srtiving for excellence.

    I really dont think this school has much of a 'happy' factor. the teachers pick favorites the seniors act high and mighty and freshman are treated like dirt. What's worse bullying is not taken care of even when seen by teachers.

  • (9 years ago)

    This school has a lot of things to work on. The teachers pick favorites and they don't make it fun enough for the students so the students don't want to be there and work hard to make good grades. If they liked the school then maybe they would try harder.

    My two daughters attended this school district from K to 12. Both received an excellent education and have gone on to great academic achievement in college accepted into and participating in the Honor & Leadership Program at their universities. The high school does an excellent job of preparing the students to go on to college including an array of Advanced Placement courses and enthusiastic teachers. (To name a few Ms. Daniel Mrs. Howes (we miss you) Ms. Burton Mrs. Edie & Mrs. Ballard.) The only detracting factors are a lack of emphasis by administration in recognizing the academically-achieving students and a seemingly disinterested principal possible because he is made ineffective by a site-based council system. I would highly recommend this school.

    This is a great school considering it is the only high school in the county. The teachers are good with a few exceptions. The school has a long way to go with their math cirriculum which is not at all up to par with national standards and it does nothing to prepare students for college. Otherwise all the other departments do a great job. The staff and students are very personable and there is a sense of community among everyone. A great small school with lots of potential.
