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.

    Although Bourbon County Schools wasn't the ideal school for my child we made it through the first year. One of the guidance counselor's despite being in a cast for most of this pring did an incredible job of helping my son find his place and activities that interested him. He doesn't learn by reading as much as by doing but the teacher's made allowances after the gc got to know our situation.

    I think Bourbon County High School is a very poor excuse for a school. There is no discipline. My child has been in the Bourbon Co. school system since 1st grade and I have never been happy with the school system. I am in the process of looking for a better quality school.

    i think that the academic program is great here at bourbon county high school the teachers are great and your child gets alot of 1 on 1 time with the teacher. Here the sports programs are great they include basketball softball/baseball football cross country track wrestling cheerleading swimming and i'm sure more. The level of parent involvemetent is great with the P.T.S.A (parent/teacher/student/assioation is great.
