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.

    Great school great academics challenges students on "their" level teachers are very involved with parents staff keep communication lines open principal truly cares for each child at Mann. We are so privileged our child has the opportunity to attend such an academic forward school.

    The school board should take a serious look into the true policy that this school administration and it's teachers have toward education and students.

    Top notch school! Awesome teachers awesome staff. My daugher is in her 2nd year there and we have nothing but good things to say. Great communicatin from the teachers (weekly newsletter emailed agendas with daily notes) and from the school too (weekly newsletter calls when appropriate fliers sent in a weekly folder). The teachers go above and beyond in everyway. Tons of parents volunteer and there are lots of opportunities to contribute to the school and community in other ways with fund raisers if you choose to. Good activities. My daughter loves the school. Homework is an appropriate amount. Lots of fun programs worked into the schedule too.

    I must respectfully disagree with the review written on January 27 2009. As a Mann parent I cannot speak highly enough of this school its' faculty staff and students. The students are top-notch caring compassionate respectful and bright. The curriculum is challenging but manageable engaging students of all learning styles and ability levels. The teachers and staff go above and beyond the call of duty in every sense of the word. From the courteousness of the office staff to the phenomenal amount of volunteerism on the part of teachers and parents and the professionalism/knowledge of the teachers our students are learning in an incredible environment. I've seen these students excell (above the rest) as they move to Gray - a clear indication that their time at Mann was a true success. Mann is defintely a special special school.

    My child has attended this school for three years as many years as the school has been open. The teachers as a whole are tough but compassionate. I believe everyone at my child's school wants him to succeed at high levels. The parent involvement is phenomenal. Too many activities to count for both kids and parents.

    I must agree with the previous review. I also had a child attend 5th grade at Mann. My student received a large amount of homework especially in the areas of Math and Science. I too have had several issues with the teachers one in particular using intimidation towards students. I approached the administration with my concerns and unfortunately seemed to make things only worse for my child. The school board should take a serious look into the true policy that this school administration and it's teachers have toward education and students.
