I am very happy with the direction my sons school is headed. There has been change in leadership over the past couple of years and feel the new leadership is great! Teachers show a great deal of concern for their students needs. The principal is fantastic and has worked with me in many ways. I can't wait to see what events are planned this year to give our community the chance to see all the positive things in action! Thank you Mr. Durham for creating a safe, fun, respectful and disciplined environment for my child to grow and develop in!

I myself attended this school and now both of my children do. I moved back into this school district when my son was ready to start school. This is an excellent school. The teachers are all great and make an effort to help each child as much as possible. The school could use some work but it is due to lack of funding. However there is no lack of educational ability by the teachers that my children have had so far. I love this school and would not send my kids anywhere else!

LJES tries very hard to be a good school. But it seems that everything that they try comes off as unprofessional and sort of thrown together at the last minute. The office staff could use some training in showing more kindness the the children themselves. The school seems to have a lack of funding issue which may have a lot to do with their sort of 'thrown together' atmosphere. We have an excellent teacher for our child who truly excells with the children. I think overall the teachers do a good job. I feel that the negative appearance of the school can be blamed on the county/state. LJES does not have adequate music and art classes. They seem to combine music, art and then science and math. I think they would do better with more funding.

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.
