I have 2 children there. One is Kindergarten and the other is a 4th grader. My oldest has several issues. He has aspergers, ADHD,ODD, tourettes, and an archnoild cyst on his brain. He isn't very social. He has been bullied by a classmate, talked down to by a teacher in front of his classmates. He works at his own pace so I am constantly hearing how terrible he is doing but yet he makes straight A & B's. He is in regular classes but does have a 504 plan(I don't see where it is implemented). I am told he doesn't qualify for an IEP because he is so smart. So I would say NO they do not support children is isssues with learning & attention issues. Well not without being called out in front of the class.

My school is an amazing school! We started the Franklin Covey, The Leader in Me last year and it is helping our students learn to be amazing little people! The staff of South Green Elem. work well together , are kind and considerate towards coworkers, students and parents of our little people. It is not a place of gossip or complaining. I love working here where teaching and loving our students and their families is such a high priority! Go SGE!!!

I have two children that attend SGE and they love it. It is a fantastic school with a very caring staff. It also has a low student to teacher ratio which is very important as well. Keep up the good work South Green Elem.

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.
