Crofton Elementary tries to be a great school. The teachers work hard and long hours, the principal tries to stay on top of everything, and most of the staff are friendly and eager to do their job well. However, every time I came to the principal with a concern, no one will take responsibility and the blame always gets put in being "underfunded and understaffed." My children, 3rd grade and K, love this school, with the exception of one teacher and a bus driver who both yell constantly and one of them curses at kids (bus garage won't do anything about her, so I just try to avoid using that service). Has sooooo much potential to be excellent, but is sadly and sorely lacking in accountability. Also, parent involvement is almost nil. A handful of parents are the skeleton crew that make up PTO/fundraising and parent representatives on various councils. Teachers are great and put forth wonderful effort for the kids.

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.
