Don't be jealous. If it weren't for Model grads paying taxes, the county school grads would be sitting in their trailer parks with no food stamps or welfare.

A few? There are way more than a few!

Model Lab School 2012 average composite score 21.7
Ky Public School 2012 average composite score 19.5

Minimum score required on ACT for acceptance to UK is 21.

Not too impressive.
How many special needs students does Model serve? That might affect your bug scores! Have any FMD students? County schools take all kids and serve and meet the needs of all kids. It's not all about test scores. 19.1? Pretty darn good when you are testing 450 kids a year from ALL backgrounds!

<quoted text>Sorry stupid, but you are wrong. I attended UK and did not take any form of ACT test.

ALL that is required to attend any school is the cash. You have the cash, you don't have to bother with test.
That may have been true a very long time ago. Today- you are not going anywhere without taking the ACT or SAT! Hellllooo!

Has anyone here considered that Model students must take the test to see if they can hack it in a real school.
I'd say most Model grads go to EKU. Easier to cover crap if it is all in the same pile.
Lasted in the Richmond Register every year are all students from Model at graduation and where they are going to college. I cannot remember any having EKU listed the last two years. Now the Model students do attend EKU during high school. There are kids that graudate with 12-24 semester hours of general education college hours.

Models has special needs and fmd kids. It shocked me at first but they give them scholarships to cover the cost, I assume for state requirements. So no one can claim models scores are higher since they don't have special needs kids because they do.

Model has turned out some of the best and brightest minds in Madison County. Get a clue! Here are some Model graduates that would love to hear your opinion in person:
1. Judge Jennings;
2. Judge Logue;
3. Judge Neal;
4. Assistant Commonwealth's attorney Tom Smith;
5. Attorney Brooke Bowman;
6. Attorney Jim Baechtold;
7. Kentucky State Trooper Brian Bowman;
8. Gus Benson -- administrator EKU;
9. Karen Benson -- physical therapist;
10. Kentucky State Troopers Keith & Chad Pearcy;
11. Attorney Meena Mohanty;
12. Kevin Durham; co owner liquor mart;
Those are just a few of many. Model turns out more professionals per capita than any other school in the state. With graduating classes of 50 or less that is a pretty good result.
So hate on dumb rednecks, these folks are far more successful and respected than most people who badmouth Model. Wait? I guess that is all just an accident.
the reason they are still here is because they wanted to be big fish in a little pond....they would be little fish in a big pond anywhere else.
sorry Dad

My Child graduated from MHS in 2012. 100% of the graduates went on to college. At graduation the information was over $1.75 million dollars in scholorships for the 54 seniors. My child played sports at Model and is currently on the Dean's list in college, and as a distinguished college student on the national list.
I'm sure we made the right choice and from the other posts on this thread from the bullies, I am certain of it. They obviously didn't learn to spell and have correct grammer either.
Sorry, my child graduated in 2012. She and 3 others decided not to go to college this year, so your statistics are wrong. I never heard how much was given in scholarships(correct spelling). I am glad you know all....lol.

It's also spelled grammar, not grammer. If you are going to be condescending and ridicule others for grammar and spelling, perhaps you should proofread.

You can attend college courses at EKU from MCHS as well and start with the same amount of college credits.

I have never heard such a bunch of nonsense and rubbish concerning who has the best ACT/SAT scores, what percentage of grads go to college, how much scholarship money is given out. And are some of you nuts ? How many girls are pregnant and who beat up who. Ridiculous!
I can tell you that there are good kids and great students at both the county schools and Model. Kids who graduated from MCHS have been accepted (yes every year) at some of the most prestigous colleges in the US ( including Harvard, Columbia, Duke, MIT and many others). There are kids who graduated from MCHS who scored a perfect, yes perfect score of 36 on the ACT ( I would guess there are some Model students who achieved that also). Yes, Model's score average is higher than the state average. There is a reason for this: 1. Public schools have a higher number of kids from disadvantaged families ( this does not mean these kids can't do well, but in actuality many do not perform as well and for many reasons). 2. At one time, and this may still be the case, kids who have attendance problems, reoccurring behavior issues or who consistently do not perform to their potential, are asked to leave.
This arguing and name calling that my dog's bigger/ better than yours is juvenile and ignorant. The fact is both schools produce extremely successful people.
Now the question should Model close? If it is deemed necessary for EKU to close Model as well as eliminate programs at EKU, the good of the University comes first. EKU is first a university and that must be their priority. Keeping Model open because it has always been there and provides a semi " private" education for those thinking public school isn't good enough is a bad decision. There must be reason that Morehead, WKU and UK closed their lab schools years ago?

I agree with 90% of your comments. There are great kids at both schools. I doubt your average elementary school child has much choice about where they attend school so they certainly shouldn't be bashed for the decisions of their parents. To me, these 20, 30 and yes 40 year old grudges are ridiculous. I had friends at both schools and the subject of where we went was rarely brought up.

Today, many of the kids mix through soccer,basketball, and other fall and winter leagues. Again, these kids seem to get along fine.

My only disagreement is your contention that Model is not part of the university. The teachers are EKU faculty and many also teach college classes at EKU. Model was threated to be closed since 1977. The decision to keep it open is because it does provide the opportunity to observe and teach for many EKU education majors. That made the school somewhat unique. The school is on campus, so the EKU students can log their observation time and never have to leave campus. Model is part of the College of Education and will fall under their budget. Live and let live is what I say. Central is already overcrowded and it will not be long before a another high school is built to service Northern Madison county.
