I went to elementary school at grants lick and now my son goes there! It's a wonderful school and would recommend it to everyone! It is a small school which I enjoy everyone there knows everyone. They always put the children first. The teachers staff and principal are all great an awesome with the children! This school definitely deserves a 10 rating!

It is a small school, but they no longer combine 1st and 2nd grade or 3rd and 4th. Not only will your child learn a lot educational wise but they will learn how to build strong relationships and be productive and contributing citizens within their community!

I rate this school a 5 star. It is very small school where all the people know one another and although principals have changed it doesn't seem as relaxed there and friendly but I still feel they have the children's best interest at the front of the line! I love having the spanish program there and a preschool also now!

Overall, a good school. I like that it is a smaller school approx. 230 students. They combine grades in 1st & 2nd also in 3rd & 4th. For the most part the teachers are caring and well educated. We only had one rough year with a teacher that I feel decides her own rules and disregards the parent's concerns. It is a tight knit community, so people know each other and have their bonds. So if there are issues, you need to follow the 'chain of command' and be persistant for someone to listen and act accordingly.

My child is in 3rd grade at grant's lick elementary. I cannot praise this school enough. The teachers and principal are into their students 100%. The school has a major focus on reading which is essential. The school is very small (our community is relatively small) and it seems like all the parents know each other as well as knowing the teachers. There is great participation in the PTA-meetings are always packed. The fundraisers get great results. Students and their education are their number one priority and it shows!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.
