I have a 9 yr old in 4th grade and a 6 yr old in 1st grade. My 4th grader has had to stay for ESS every yr since 2cd grade only thins year he doesn't have to. The teachers are excellent. They will work one on one with the student that need the extra help. My 1st grader is doing great in reading and spelling. He says he teacher really helps him a lot. The principal really does a good job to make sure these kids get the education they need she is just wonderful. I am really happy with the way they want the parents to get involved with the student and activities at school. I wouldn't want my children to go to any other school while in elementary.

I have an 8 year old boy in 2nd grade and a 6 year old girl in kindergarden. Both are getting a well rounded education. I am very happy with the teachers and how they are actively involved with my kids. They genuinely care about the students. My son is excelling in reading and is reading at a 5th grade reading level. My daughter has truly 'come out of her shell' since being in her kindergarden class and is now reading very well. They always invite the parents in to be actively involved with the students. I genuinely feel they are getting what they need at Clay Elementary. I want to thank the teachers for doing such a good job. Thanks a million!

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.
