We have a very strong family resource center for the kids. With a staff that cares about our kids.

i agree with the review from another concerned parent when it comes to a child with special needs. my son is having a difficult time paying attention and learning as quickly as the other students and he is getting sent to detention for this. we just moved here about a month ago and already my son has had detention twice!! thats a bit too far when we r talking about a second grader!! i want answers!!!

The school may be great for a child who does not have any learning disabilities. Hodgenville Elementary does not have what it takes to educate the child with learning disabilities nor does it have the resources to give support to the families of those children. Perhaps the school district of Larue County needs to re-asses the education needs and programs when it comes to providing an education for ALL of the children to attend their school

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.
