The Louisville School System
Louisville, Kentucky, is the largest city in the state, with a population of about 616,000. Jefferson County Public Schools oversees more than 170 schools, serving approximately 100,000 students. In addition to the public schools in the area, there are nearly 30 Catholic schools. The city is also home to the Kentucky School for the Blind, which serves the state’s visually impaired and blind students.
It can be intimidating for a student to be part of such a large school district. There is steep competition for the attention of every instructor, every sports team, and for a spot in after-school activities. As a parent, it can be difficult to know how to help your child navigate such a large system. Fortunately, Varsity Tutors can help by connecting parents with highly qualified Louisville tutors. A personal tutor can offer your child the academic support they need to gain confidence in their academic skills and reach their learning potential.
Here is a chart of assessment performances from some of the biggest high schools in Louisville.
Louisville Test Scores
Across the nation, students begin preparing for nationally recognized college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT in high school. Students in Louisville gain plenty of experience in taking standardized exams long before they ever leave elementary school. Beginning in third grade, Louisville students start taking the mandatory Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress (K-PREP) in reading and mathematics. Throughout their academic careers, students will also take assessments in science, writing, and social studies.
If your child is preparing for an exam, working with a personal tutor can make the process go more smoothly. Whether your child needs a refresher on subject material or they just need access to better testing strategies, a professional tutor can help them reach their academic goals.
Even if your child attends one of the best schools in the city, they can benefit from working with a tutor. Louisville is home to some of the best high schools in the state. You can take a look at the table below to find out which area high schools are ranked the best and how they compare to other high schools in the state.

Personalized instruction is critical for most students who are having difficulty making learning gains in a traditional classroom. In larger class settings, it is difficult for instructors to customize the learning content and material to match each student's preferences. A personal tutor, on the other hand, can take the time to create learning materials designed with your child’s learning needs and learning style in mind.
It can be helpful for parents to have an idea of how large the classes their child attend will be. The largest high schools in Louisville have fairly large class sizes as demonstrated by the teacher-to-student ratios listed in the table below.
