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.

    Moved to Kentucky a year ago and my daughter has completed kindergarten and has started first grade at MWES. I think the school is fantastic. My daughter loves all the faculty and is excelling at above grade pace. She is always excited to go to school. I find the teachers to be extremely friendly and goal oriented. Mrs. Lewis the principal knows all the students by name and is the energizer bunny working non stop. Highly recommend.

    This is a school in my community that I feel needs to be updated therefore I'd like to give this school the opportunity to create a more up to date learning environment with a newer facility.

    I currently have two children at MWES and we have been so very blessed to have the principal that we do. She is respectful of the kids and their families at all times and treats the children like family. They are always encouraged to do their personal best. We will be moving to new schools in the fall due to the redistricting going on and I can only pray that my boys continue to have such a positive experience!

    I am a custodial grandparent and both my grandchildren attend MWES. They have special needs and previously attended PGES. MWES is outstanding in meeting their needs and the previous school principal impeded their progress by 2 years. There is no comparison in the schools as the past semester has surpassed the previous 2 years in their development. The staff and available resources at MWES are wonderful for children with special needs.

    Can't say enough wonderful things about MWES. All four of my daughters have attended this school. It offers wonderful academic music and art activities. We have a very strong parent/grandparent volunteer program. The faculty and staff are extremely dedicated.
