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.

    My daughter feels safe at West she enjoys school. I can't generalize on the teachers there have been some I'm impressed with others not so much. Communication needs work. TAG does need work but Mr. Neihof seems to be working on that. Parents need to be aggressive for your student TAG has been one learning experience after another this year! My daughter has enjoyed all her activities.

    its great! my daughter couldnt be happier there! the sports program is excellent and so is the academic but the tag program could use some work

  • (7 years ago)

    Pitiful. The teachers could care less. The Talented and Gifted program is a name and nothing else. I am in 5 TAG categories and we did absolutly nothing. Administration is an embarresment.
