whats with the education in this town? they keep spending money on the schools and i think instead they need to spend it on some great teachers. i see teachers yell at students and talk very disrespectful and everytime i see this happening they are being turned in. i cant stand it and they know not to talk to mine like that.Only if the parents knew what is going on. there are soooo many fake people at bardstown primary school that i can puke!! does anyone else have any problems out of the barstown school system???
so far so good

I dont think my sons teacher is the right teacher for him she has made comments about him that are incorrect. Maybe there are to many students per adult. I think all the classes at primary should have assistant teachers, even if I would pay more taxes....I have heard some things that I do not approve of, also rolling eyes, what kind of teacher rolls their eyes? Very rude and this teaches kids to do the same. I also have seen some wonderful teachers.

I am becoming more and more interested in homeschooling but I worry about a lack of interaction with other students.

I have worked in a school and have seen things that parents would not like...not abuse but just not doing the right thing by the students....maybe very unprofessional would be the best way to describe it.

i agree with you also parent they do roll thier eyes and say mean things and sometimes its the way they say it. its pretty poor way to teach they are only worried about thier scores with the system and they teach the sucess method with also resoect well like i told the principle if you and these teachers want respect then respect me and my children. i dont care much for the assistant there at all.

Could be like the one school on the news, where everyone, including janitors were fired because they didn't pass the no child left behind, for a couple years in row. There was one up north, and then heard about another school today on news in georgia, I think.

My son is fixing to start Kindergarten. I was wondering if there were any other parents interested in forming a home school pool. You know like a car pool but with home school. I would pledge a day of home schooling my child, yours and others children. In exchange each household pledges one day of the week home schooling your children and others.I feel like this may be a solution to some of my issues with the school systems in place. In his pre-K class my son has been sick so much from other parents sending sick children to school. I have had issues with negative behaviors not being attended to within the classroom. One of the oddest rules is: they can't give my son water for lunch or snack...they are mandated to give him white milk...which he will not drink...most days he comes home so thirsty...I can't stand it.

athomemom, did they give you a reason as to why they are refusing your son water? that's got to be one of the craziest things i've ever heard. i would look into that, it's not right for them to make your son go thirsty because he doesn't like milk. maybe they would let you send a couple of those small bottled waters to school with him? i know they have water fountains, or did they remove those from schools now too? i feel for him, i hate milk too.

I think, taking a week at a time would be easier.

I have kids in the primary and the elementary schools. Ms Ryan is the greatest at the primary school. None of the 3 kids have ever had a bad teacher there. The elemenary school is a whole different ballgame. The principal doesn't live in Bardstown. She totally messed that school up. Ms Spalding is great though. I am iffy on the teachers there. My 3rd grader has an older teacher and although she is nice, the kids run over her. I am thinking of sending my 2 youngest to the county elementary school system.

Bardstown is one of the most top academic schools in the state of Kentucky. Nelson County and Bethlehem didn't meet the education qualifications period. And it proves with Bardstown having the top ACT scores and less high school drop outs. Nelson County had a 45% incline drop out rate in a two year radius. Also Nelson County set the limit to having the most pregnant girls and the school with the most failed drug test. Bethlehem was second for the most failed Drug Test but there academics were pore. Bardstown had the less most amount of drop outs. Very few drug test failing. There school strives to keep students on the right track. How do I know all this? I work for the board.

This is not true. My daughter is lactose intolerant and she drinks water everyday for lunch and snack time.

If you look at the numbers, I'm sure Bardstown has as many as Nelson County and Bethlehem. You have to remember Nelson County has over 1200 students, Bethlehem has what 250? and Bardstown has what, maybe 400? So as far as lower or less numbers, you need to go by percentages for this statement to be accurate.

There's 375 9th graders alone this year at Bardstown.327 10th graders, 235 11th graders, and 212 12th graders. So what that is like 1150 students? Yeah. Bardstown is overly crowded and that's why there building a second Bardstown. So many students move from Nelson County to Bardstown because of academics. Maybe you should make sure your facts are correct first.

Moved my kids from county to Bardstown. I am much more satisfied, the high school teachers actually care.

Funny that not one of my parents open their mouths at open house or in a parent teacher conference. Have to go on topix and talk behind our backs. Typical small town trash!
