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.

    I have family that have attended this school and loved it. I moved into this district just for the school. My son is 3 and starting this year and he is excited as I am. Walton is a very good school for all ages.

    It's a mediocre school. Teachers are not that experienced. Peoples in this area thinks it's a good school but it's not. I'm not happy with this school.

    I love this school. I send all three of my children here. I have a child with ADHD and learning difficulties and they give her all the appropriate attention she needs. I moved into this district purposely for my children to get a great education. My husband graduated for the high school and raved about the school he loved it here. The staff is incredible and dedicated to the students and only want whats best for them. I will never move out of the Walton Verona school district because they are such a great school. I would recommend this school for anyone looking to give their child the best education possible.

    My daughter attended K and 1st grades when we discovered she had dyslexia. The school was basically no help. If your child is not well above average academically good luck. We found a private scholl that she is flourishing in. They have the minimum required IPE. The school system is poorly managed and they seem to like it that way. On top of the very high taxes extra ciricular activities are pay to play. If your child excels in their studies I highly recommend it. It's small ssafe and friendly.

    Both my daughters went to Walton Schools from kindergarten and graduated. Both girls did very well and was always on the a honor roll and were advanced in their studies. I have always talked highly of the school district. In fact we now have 3 grand kids going to the elementary school they are in 3rd 1st and kindergarten and we have one still not old enough but he will also go there. In fact the two oldest ones live in walton but are out of district and attend. I as a parent and grandparent would not want them to go any where else but where they are. GO WALTON
