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 is behond the 'most' excellent school. My daughter is on the honor roll and in 4th grade. Now just the other day when she was home sick vice principal Mr. Sheron called to check on her. Now that just touched my heart! Now the teachers are outstanding. Mrs. Baker! Mrs. Rawlings. All the staff in the office. I feel safe with my daughter at Bourbon Central. Mr. Rankin is an excellent principal. He really cares. For each and every student. I know each day when my child leaves my home. She is learning and getting a good education & is safe. Way to go to the staff at Bourbon central. I rank you top of list! I thank you and keep up your hard work.

    i really love the teacher. Mrs. Rawlins Mrs. Ernest and Mrs. Lizer are excellent teachers. I am so glade my children have them . I could not ask for better teachers. They are always willing to talk to you. They make sure to keep you informed with how your children are doing. I am so thankful to them for all the concern understanding and are so compassionate towards the kids. It's great to see teachers that really love they're job and I as a parent so much appreciate it.
