Awesome School with great teachers, staff and students. I think this is one of the better schools in Bowling Green. DOn't know why people think this is a bad school.

It's a very good school with good teachers

My boys have loved their teachers like family members both years now. It puts my mind at ease knowing they are not only learning, but more importantly cared about. They are actually disapointed when school is out!! They are developing a love of learning at an early age which I believe is only possible through caring staff. Way to go Mrs. Daniels, Mrs. Reed, Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Horn!!!

Warren Elementary has the best teachers...they are caring and they are open to new ideas. Each of them is aware of and appreciates the diversity of the children and allows it to make the school even better.

Great school system, the best in the state. High quality teachers.

This school doesn't teach the students much at all. They don't give any homework and when we asked why, they said their policy is 'less work, more understanding'. Their policy is why the students score so low on state tests. Half of the students are on the honor roll but score low on state tests. That should tell everybody that the school is just not teaching the students.

I am very happy that my son loves to go to school & loves his teachers. I have only the best things to say about how the staff & faculty are very involved with the students & my sons teachers always let me know what is going on & if there is ever a problem. I could not ask for better teachers..

I found the faculty and staff at Warren Elementary exemplary in so many ways. The principal and assistant principal are caring and very involved in all aspects of the school. Parent involvement is encouraged and nurtured! The staff is top notch and completely child centered. The atmosphere is one of cooperation between the school and the home and parents are welcome at all times! The faculty has impressive credentials and do their best to ensure that each child succeeds!

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.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
