The Staff at C'burg is incredible. I love sending my kid there and have watched the school get better and better each year.

Both of my kids go to C'burg Elem. They both love it there. I am very happy with all the teachers. I think they do the best they can. The principal they have is the best. I was so happy when she came to our school. She is very active with the children in the school. She rewards the kids for all the hard work they do,with inflatable parties and carnivals. They make every kid feel special.

Catlettsburg is a good school. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else. I do wish they would focus on more that Test Test Test scores. There is so much more for these kids than just their scores. We have a strong PTA again this year. I think that if they had more help they could make the school even better. Mrs. Prater is Great!

I am well pleased with this school. They truly care about the students and their success. I live 5 minutes from the schools my children should attend in Lawrence Co. Ky. However, Catlettsburg has proven their academic success and I am proud to say that they have allowed my two children to attend their school because I can be assured that they are getting a good education. The school staff has proven the kids do come 1st! Thanks once again!

I am so happy with this school. This school is full of teachers who want to go the extra mile to help their students. I have also been very impressed with the new principal. Our school had a fire and my child's classroom was affected as well as six others. Mrs. Prater and the staff have created new classrooms for these children and my child has had no transition problems. Keep up the good work! Go Wildcats!

I think the principal and staff at CBES are wonderful! The principal's door is always open and she is readily available when needed. My child has been enrolled there for 4 years and is doing great. The teachers do take time with each child. I think parent involvement could be much stronger but if you're not going to get involved, don't complain. As far as parents with small children having to stand outside, I agree with it 100%. I've been at the school when everyone is crowding in the front lobby and it's total chaos. There was too much confusion when parents and small children (not all of them being watched)are in the lobby while school is dismissing. Keep up the great work!

My children attend Catlettsburg Elementary. I would not have them in any other school. My children love their new principal! I always feel welcomed into the building, from the moment I sign in at the volunteer window greeted with a smile. The staff is always wonderful to me. The teachers are wonderful too. Being a part of a small community, I pass by the school many days and see a lot of the teachers cars in the parking lot long after school hours and many times on Saturdays and Sundays. I have never heard any of my parent friends have any complaints about the school. As far as parents not being able to wait for their children in the hallway I read the note to state it was for safety purposes. Thanks for all the hard work and carig so much for my children. The kids is what its about!

Our School is a school full of great kids and great parents. But the Principal there, I am not happy with at all. We already had one principal that treated the parents like they were not suppose to be at the school.Well she ended up quiting because nobody liked her. Well this other principal we have is just like her. She does not socialize with the parents at all. She makes the parents with other small children stand out in 20-30 degree weather and will not let them stand in the building. And you still get treated like you are in the way when you go to volunteer or go to the school for anything.The P.T.A. has done alot of things this year to raise money for a new playground for our kids.Well the school keeps taking it for the teachers. The teachers there need to pitch in too.

My son just moved to catlettsburg and he was only there for 3 weeks and they wanted to test him for ADD. I personally feel that this is just a easy way for the teachers not to have to make time and go the extra mile for kids who need a little more time to adjust. In my opinion ADD is just a way to turn active children into zombies so they can slide through the public school system.

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.
