The teachers are friendly and technology is great. Students seem to thrive individually and feel that they are part of a positive community.

My granddaughter attends Centerfield Elementary and she LOVES it. It is such a warm, caring, nurturing environment. Everyone in the building really does care a great deal about the students. Keep up the fantastic work everybody. We really appreciate you.

This is a WONDERFUL School! I can't say enough. The teachers, staff, and principal are amazing. One of the best things about this school is that they do Life Skills. They reward children MONTHLY for courage, empathy, common sense, confidence, and more. How many school will still reinforce children morally? I love it, and so does my child!

This school is by far the best Elementary school in Oldham County. They have the best principal, Teachers and staff.They are understanding and take time to listen to the parents as to what should be addressed.They have all kinds of fun things for the children, Such as awards every month, parties, Popcorn Friday.My children have been to another school and didn't like it.Here they excell in everything. By the middle of the year my then kindergartener came home and was reading without a problem!!! ...Way to go Centerfield teachers and staff!~!!! We love you!

I think Centerfield in an incredible school. The teachers & staff are dedicated to the individual needs of each student. The principal is a wonderful leader of the school. The overall atmosphere at Centerfield is positive and warm. I would not want my child to attend any other elementary school. Centerfield is open for district transfers and I highly encourage parents to check them out.

My son will be in 3rd grade when we return to school this fall. We spent 2 years at Buckner Elementary, then were redistricted. Hesitantly we made our adjustments to Centerfield and could not be happier. My son is testing at the next grade level in reading and math. I can't say enough about how pleased we are with our move. Centerfield is a wonderful environment and my son loves it!!!

Centerfield is an outstanding elementary school. I have two children attending the school and feel that they are receiving an excellent well rounded education. Centerfield continually places among the highest elementary schools in the state and draws its population from the surrounding neighborhoods. The school is very willing to work with the community and has an active PTSA who help the school with many programs and projects. Any time I have had a concern the administration quickly responded and followed through with the action that I was promised. The staff at Centerfield is truly student centered. The only negative I can see is that some of the parents try to base decisions solely on their own children and don't keep the big picture in mind.

I think the comment by the previous person misunderstands the blended school concept. By having 2nd grade kids help 1st grade kids gave me a 1st grader testing at 3rd grade levels. Now that she is in 2nd grade she is in a leadership position and is responsible to help a 1st grade student succeed. This is a wonderful school where the teachers and support staff truly care for the attending students. Many extrracurricular programs are available for all types of kids. Parents are also very involved in the school. All of these things together add up to an ideal learning environment creating students with real life skills ready for Middle School.

Centerfield is a wonderful school. The teachers do everything they possibly can, to ensure that all students succeed. The great number of extracurricular activities that the school offers including everything from cross-country and basketball to chess and Mad Science impressed me. All of my children completely enjoyed every experience that had at Centerfield Elementary and I would recommend the school to everyone!!

Posted September 9, 2003

the class size is a lot larger than they report. they have 1st and 2nd and 3rd and 4th grades together and the students that are advanced end up teaching to the slower children and looking after the disabled children that are in the class to make sure they are doing the work that they are supposed to do. I feel that this does not allow the more advanced child to move on and improve his or her skills.

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.
