Kenton Elementary is a wonderful school. Kenton Elementary is the extremely family oriented. Also, the teachers are wonderful and very involved with each student individually. The building itself is well kept and very inviting. Learning goes above and beyond with activities such as teaching the children the value of the land with their garden and fund raising events such as fairs. It really is just a great learning experience for students.

Daughter is very happy here! This is our first year and everyone make you feel welcome. She has enjoyed being a member of the chorus and singing at the 4th grade plays (she's in 3rd). She loves Ms. Yagodzinski as her teacher and I am very impressed with her. Parents are very involved here.

My son loves Kenton Elementary! He had Mrs. Noel for Kindergarten and I am convinced that she is the best teacher in the world! The staff, for the most part, are very friendly and helpful. The principal and assistant principal, I have been told by other teacher friends of mine who would know, are the best administrative staff in N. Ky. and from my son's 2 year experience there so far, I have been impressed and would agree. The school is very big on safety as well, I have confidence that my child is very safe while he is at school! I would highly recommend this Kenton!

My daughter is a second grade student at Kenton, I admire Mrs. Goetz, she does and excellent job running the school. Unfortunatly my daughter was harassed and intimidated and spoken to like trash by several other students in her first grade class, which made for a very hard year. So far this year has been excellent, academically the school is excellent, I just wish they would pay a little closer attention to the little ones and realize that words and actions from peers can harm the childs overall learning process and, as in my case, make them not want to go to school. Other than that, no complaints!! Let's pray for a good year:)

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.

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.
