Great school! My kids have enjoyed their time at HES. Two have gone on while one remains at HES. All my kids were challenged to learn as much as possible and to work to their potential. HES has a very welcoming atmosphere. Teachers and staff genuinely care for the students.

I have several children with special needs and this school does not accommodate. Instead if meeting the kids where they are and working with us as a family, this school has expected my children to do the same thing all of their classmates are doing. This is a very cookie cutter school. Due to these problems, we have had to find alternative placement for our children to learn in.

Great school!! All three of my children have had an excellent education at HES. The teachers are very caring and truly have the children's best interest in mind. They work hard to ensure that all students are learning. The positive relationships that my children have with the teachers and staff have made a huge difference in their learning and desire to be at school. It really helps when they know someone cares.

My son just completed kindergarten here at HES. The teachers and staff were very friendly and helpful! He learned so much this year and really excelled! He really enjoyed going to school everyday and was sad to see the school year come to an end. He is anxiously awaiting the start of the new school year! His teacher was Ms. Hicks and I think it would be hard to find any better! She really challenged him to do his best and when she saw that he needed to be challenged even more- she did just that!

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.
