Barbourville Independent is proud to announce that we have once again been classified as a “Proficient” school district by the Kentucky Department of Education based on the 2015-16 state assessment scores. Our district made gains at all levels, elementary, middle and high, which also earned Barbourville the distinction of being a “Progressing” school district. Our most significant gains were at the elementary level where our faculty and students increased their overall score by nearly 10 performance points. We are also extremely proud to announce that our high school has earned the title of a “School of Distinction”, the highest accountability honor given only to the top 5% of schools in the state. We would like to congratulate our teachers, faculty and students who are all responsible for these outstanding test results.
