I was dissatisfied with their ability and available resources to help with special needs children! Many of the parents of special needs children from LD to autism are frustrated and have had to pull in many other resources and pay for advocates to make sure their children get the education they deserve. The feeling I have, is that they will do the least possible to keep you out of their hair and push your child through to the next grade, unprepared . We have decided to move out of this city and find a district that wants to support families with learning disabilities .

I am new to the Woodfill School family. My children are in the fourht and first grades. The teachers are very involved in making sure the children do there homwork. My kids were a little reluctant to start a new school, but they were welcomed with open arms. They love Woodfill and i am extremely happy we came to Ft Thomas and can be apart of getting a great education while still having fun. Thanks Woodfill Go Wildcats!!

I had a special needs son that started Woodfill in the first grade. The staff and teachers there were wonderful with him. They helped him to get as far as he could go and were consistent with him, providing limits when needed, but also taking a personal interest in him. I can not say enough about how much they helped him and how great they were. He is now ready to graduate the eighth grade and head on to High School. Thank you Woodfill.

Woodfill is an excellent school, with outstanding staff! I do not understand why there will not be field trips for 3rd grade this year. I think field trips are important to the kids. Anyways, Woodfill Rocks!

Woodfill Elementry is by far the best Elementy school in Ft. Thomas. The teachers/staff are great! The quality of teaching here outstanding. Our teachers/staff are the most caring teachers, compasinate I've ever seen. Alot of the teachers have kids who attend school here! I've had kids at this school since 1995, with more years to come. I wouldn't want my kids at any other elementry school in the city! The PTO at this school go above the call of duty for students, teachers and staff. The parent involvement is outstanding. Most of the parents in this school are both working parents, but they are the most involved. Test scores are proof of quality of education in this city. Keep up the good work teachers/staff. Ft. Thomas Schools in general ROCK! I'd never send my kids to any other school. I hope my grandchildren will attend these schools.

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.

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.
