On 11/2/12 the test scores were released and Caywood placed LAST (by a big margin) out of all of the Kenton Co. Elem. Schools. If anyone reads this, please enlighten me why they are last.....It's a brand new school, seems to pull from nice neighborhoods like Edgewood/Crestview Hills/Lakeside Park. Is it bad teachers, admin...or what? Not sure what the problem is with this school....My kids go to this school and they are really happy here...I am glad they got a new principal starting this school year.

Caywood is great! I have been a parent at Caywood for 13 years, with children now ranging from College Age, 6th Grade, and third grade. I like how I am informed of school policies, upcoming events, and safety of my student. Thank you for the many years of good communication, great teaching and overall good structure for my children.

Great teachers and staff! I have two daughters currently attending Caywood and they love it! There's a lot of encouragement for kids to get involved in extracurricular activities and also lots of opportunities for parents to get involved as well. The atmosphere at the school is very welcoming.

This school is a really great school. There is so many activites and parent involvenment is amazing! I am a former student and it is very fun to go here. My favorite teachers that guided me through my 6 years there is Mrs.Collins, the amazing music teacher. Mrs.Sinclair, the wonderful computer teaher, And the queen of them all is the 3rd grade teacher Mrs.Furman. All these teachers are very fun loving and very sweet. And you would be so lucky to go to this school. Every teacher is there to help guide you the right path.

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.
