Summit View Elementary is a great school. The teachers are caring and wonderful. The classrooms are spacious and well-lit. The children there seem to be more courteous and my daughter has made so many friends there easily. Her test scores have always been high, but these past two years she has continued to improve and flourish at Summit View and has been so happy. She actually loves going to school and riding her bus! Thank you so much!

My daughter has a rare handicap and she's out of district. This school has opened up their arms for her and the teachers have embraced her so much. She loves coming to school everyday. They have always made sure she was always included and that she always has the right accommodations to help her achieve her maximum abilities. This school needs to be recognized for all they do.

Summit View is such a great school. The teachers are all amazing and care very much about their students. The parents of Summit View are very involved as well. I can't say enough about the school!

I feel very fortunate to have both of my children at Summit View. They offer excellent opportunities for communication between parents and teachers. They are very organized in terms of ensuring that parents are aware and involved in what is going on in the classroom and they offer many opportunities for kids with unique talents to express themselves such as art club, songwriting workshop, and technology group. My son has a physical disability and the school has done a wonderful job in working with me to ensure that his needs are met while also making us feel that we are a valuable part of the school.

I have never seen a more involved school. The teachers go over and beyond the call of duty. I can't on enough about this school. I have two children who absolutely love this school. I would never take me kids out of this school.

I have 2 children who have attended here since Pre-school and both love it. The teachers are helpful. They will let you know right away if you child is having trouble with class work etc. They really believe in the 'No child left behind'. If you want your child to have a great education this is the school to attend. We must remember that our children are the future and we must do our best as parents to make sure they get the best education possible and succeed.

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.
