We are so happy with Chandler. This year (2010-2011) we have a child in Kindergarten and another in 2nd. The small atmosphere allows all the individuals in the building the opportunity to know our children and watch over them and their education. The principal, Mr. Gardner, is very creative and willing to try new things. I highly recommend Chandler to anyone looking to move into the area.

A.B.Chandler has worked very hard to make this school a success!I have three children who all have been dianoised with either having A.D.H.D or just A.D.D;and one with a learning disability.The teachers and staff has done a excellent job with working with them and myself.I get alot of commitment out of them to making sure the children are being taught well. Chandler has a music teacher;whom also teaches the students to read music and play the flute. Chandler also offers certain ages after school sports,and extra help with schoolwork or to help students get their work caught up. Chandler also creates alot of activities to get the parents involved. Ms.Stanley and staff has really done an excellent job with making A.B Chandler a extremely successful school.Keep up the great work.

I have to say at first I didn't no what to thank about Chandler School. It has been over 10 year that I have had kids in school. Then I got to kids a boy and a girl and they both have ADHD and I didnt no any thing about it. So as time has gone by Ms. Mattingley and the teachers have helped me so much. My boy and doing home work was like big trouble at night when I got home but becouse I didnt no what he could do and couldnt do but then we all had a meeting and they let me no what he could do. It is fun to do home work with him now becouse they was so open with me. I thank each and every one of them for all the help they have gave us and for being there when I would need to no something. e has learned so much being there

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.
