When I went there, the education was crappy, teachers didn't care. They would pass you, because they had to meet quotas.
I had a hard time in college, because I wasn't prepared and wasn't taught, college prep courses.

Maybe, it's changed. I don't think so though. Someone here came and posted national test scores. Knox Central's educational scores, were really low.

i just moved to knox central this year from whitley county and im in the ninth grade also i will have to agree somewhat with what was said about the teachers alot will pass u pretty easy but they r all very nice to me. i have 2 to 3 classes that r jokes but im in two advanced placement classess also and the state department is working in the high school to help raise test scores. i do love the school though and i have made some great friends and 90 percent of the kids that i talk to have been nice even the upperclassmen. but i would def make sure that she is ready to move before she jumps into it. hope i helped

Good for you! Bravo! Seeing the good, taking advantage of what you have, and working in a few AP classes. I knew there had to be more left of that school than what I keep hearing.

like i said the test scores pretty much suck but the state department is working on that but if her daughter is any thing like me she isnt disliking south for the education she is getting if im guessing it is mainly the social life that she dislikes and in my opinion there are some great ppl over her if you get in with the right crowed

The only test scores that really matter are yours! Keep up the good work and make sure you don't get in with the wrong crowd. That kind of trouble lasts forever.

Glad to hear you are finding some good friends.

Are you sending your child to school for an education or socialization with others. Which is more important to you. Not what is important to your child, but is important for your child in the future. That is the answer to your question.

You can take advanced placement courses, in a freshman year, but you can't take college prep courses, until your junior or senior. Advanced placement courses and college prep courses are two different things.

I wouldn't send my child to Knox Central. I watched a program on tv and this young girl made striaght A's in school, got in college and struggled, because the courses she took were much further behind than the college courses. She even took college prep courses. so knox central is teaching these courses, they won't be very effective and prepare someone for college. It's just a label. Even ACT and SAT scores can be false and not prepare one for college. There isn't much to choose from in Barbourville, so I guess it doesn't matter.

thank you, that is exactly why she doesn't like south. She has absolutely no friends there, and is really depressed about it.

they have a great drama team there. All the Fine Art DFepartment class excel. If she is interested in Drama, I dont think there is a better program in the district.
