My son attended Kindergarten and first grade, and I was impressed by both his teachers. He loved school, and his math and reading skills are above his grade level. The school has some problems, which I think will be fixed when the new school building is finished next year. I would happily continue to send my kids to Burkhead, if we didn't have to move.

my son went here for 3 years before we moved. his kindergarten teacher pushed me to get him put on adhd medicine which i did not feel was needed. i was in and out the school with meeting with the principle and teacher. At the end of the year they wanted me to hold him back which i also did not agree with. The principle and vice principle were rude and inconsiderate. i am very glad my son no longer goes to this school.

My son started kindergarten this year at GC Burkhead. His teacher is amazing! He has learned so much and he loves going to school. My older children attending other county schools. I would have to say that GC Burkhead is by far the best elementary school in Hardin County, KY! The curriculum is wonderful. The attitude and level of education and experience of the teachers is extraordinary. The classrooms are well organized and well maintained. They encourage parent involvement.

My daughter has started school this year. She loves going. She loves all her teachers and all the special things she gets to do. Some of the teachers that I had when I went there are her teachers now. I think that is really neat. All the teachers and others at the school are very helpful.

This was my sons first year at GC Burkhead. I have to say I was very nervous about putting him in public school. I went to private schools. Looking back over the year I was very impressed with his teachers, programs, and bus drivers. The communication between the school and parent was excellent. I would reccomend this school to any family.
