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.

    Graduated from this school. Didn't prepare me at all for college. A few of the teachers are extremely rude and I even had one tell me I wouldn't go on to college. I made it to college and will soon graduate with two degrees. There are a few teachers I would thank deeply for believing in the rest of my credit would go to my college professors who helped push me along.

    My four children graduated from Washington County High School and they are all highly successful. Three out of the four graduated from college without any difficulty at all. They have also gone on to obtain additional degrees. The fourth is still an undergraduate in college. The teachers and administration at this school are very knowledgeable caring and helpful. There are always teachers willing to stay after school to help students. Some teachers even come in on Saturdays to help students with their academics. This schools also has a challenging academic curriculum. If a student from this school isn't prepared for college it's because they didn't put out any effort or take advantage of the services offered.
