Erpenbeck is an amazing school with great teachers , kids, and principal! It is small but not tiny. They plan fun activities and truly make it all about the kids. It is amazing what all they learn by these teachers!

Both of my kids attend Erpenbeck. It may only be for preschool but they have made such vast improvements! Their teachers and therapists truly love what they are doing and it reflects in their teaching. They have had a huge impact on my boys' lives.

Erpenbeck is an outstanding school. I love it when I was a kid. There is only 1 mean teacher in the whole school.

This is not a school for a great kid who struggles academically as Previously said . They suggest me to have tutor for my kindergarten kid at the end of the school year. It was a little shock to me.

I attended this school last year and I wasn't very pleased. I got bullied and nobody but the vice proncipal did anything about it! The teachers are way too competitve and don't give anyone a fair chance. Some of the lunch ladies can be very rude when you ask for something that you don't have. I don't reccomend this school to anybody.

My daughter started attending Erpenbeck Elementary School in Kindergarden. It was then that she began learning the basic primary skills she needed, such as taking responsibility as a student and an striving to achieve. As she continues into the fourth grade she still uses these skills in preparation for testing and overall enjoys learning. Erpenbeck Elementary has given my daughter the proper tools to succeed and dream! We are pleased to see her strive to achieve her goals at such a young age! This is a school of excellence.

Our children attended a cincinnati public school last year and our youngest was doing very poor, they wanted to hold him back. but we moved here and he started his 1st grade year at Erpenbeck they noticed he was behind right away and started putting him in special classes, lots of 1-on-1 learning time during the day, and before school tutoring. We have watched him progress at a slow but steady rate and we, as his parents, could not be happier! nobody wants to see their child struggle and 'just not get it' and i feel like at Erpenbeck they felt that way to!! I was always kept 'in the loop' i recieved letters home weekly on his progress in his special classes and i met with his teacher and principal often. He cannot wait to go back to school !!

This is not a school for a great kid who struggles academically. They will be ignored and not deemed important.

We just moved from Wisconsin, and my children have been needing IEP, and the school has been more than efficient and attentive to meet and provide my children's needs. School facilities are great, and teachers are wonderful, and very professional.

Erpenbeck Elementary is wonderful. It has been such a positive experience for our daughter. She can not wait to return to school this year! Erpenbeck has an amazing academic program, the teachers are awesome! The K-1st grade schedule is outstanding! These children are exposed & involved with several activities with daily schedules that includes art, gym, music, specials, computers, etc... Our parents are very involved with the school/PTA & so much more! They are true blue to our school. They show their support & get others involved. Our school overall exceeds my expectations. I moved to this area for our school district & have never been disappointed! Proud parent of Erpenbeck Elementary

My daughter went there and had 3 wonderful teachers. The other 2 were abusive and insulting. They were fired eventually, should have never been there in the first place. Great academic program though, especially music.

This is our second year at Erpenbeck. So far we have been thrilled with the quality of the educational experience. Despite the large size of the school, the faculty and administration is committed to providing a positive learning environment for every child. Parents and children are treated with respect and every effort is made to give children at all ends of the learning spectrum the attention they need.

The school is more concerned with state test scores and public opinion of the school than the needs of the individual students. Although many parents would offer involvment the school discourages parental participation in the classroom and does not use this potential valuable resource to support the teachers.

March 2005 As a parent of six children our youngest being 10.We have nothing good to say about the teaching abilities from the staff.Our child was left behind so they say. We removed our child from Erpenbeck. Our child is doing great now. 'NO' child should be left behind.

A very dedicated community volunteers large amounts of time at this school. We moved to this area for this school and it hasn't disapointed us!

Overly bureaucratic and disciplined. Many great teachers, but some very poor ones who don't even belong in the profession. Abusive to kids, verbally and even throw things. Great music program.

My wife and I have never been more pleased with a school. Erpenbek elementary is a true compliment to the public school system.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
