The Oldham County School District is located approximately 20 miles northeast of Louisville and serves over 12,000 students. While Kentucky schools have gone through numerous transitional phases in curriculum and assessment and are embarking on an entirely new accountability system, Oldham County Schools continues to rank among the highest-performing school districts on various academic achievement and college readiness assessments.
For the past two years, Oldham County Schools has ranked in the 98th percentile on the state assessment. In addition, each school in the district maintains the highest possible accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), designating OCS as an award-winning school district both on the state and national levels.
These exceptional scores would not be possible were it not for the vision and hard work of every individual working within the school system and through parent/community partnerships. From the outstanding leadership provided by our locally-elected school board to the high expectations set by our parents and community members, Oldham County Schools continually strives for excellence. We are fortunate to have highly-skilled teachers providing top notch instruction in the classroom, as well as strong leadership from the administrative staff at the school and district levels. We also recognize the importance of having a superb support staff in place, including those working in transportation, maintenance, food service, finance, technology, personnel, and health.
Despite the wonderful opportunity Oldham County Schools has provided, this level of success could not be achieved without the determination of our students who come to school each and every day, ready to learn and ready to work hard.
Student enrollment has grown 15 percent in the past 10 years and is twice what it was 30 years ago, bringing the current number of students to approximately 12,000 in preschool through grade 12. The district consists of a preschool, nine elementary schools, four middle schools, three high schools, an alternative school, a career center and a center for the arts and community education. We are a continually improving district and are focused on ensuring the learning of each of our students.
