I have a special needs daughter that attends Lawler and I couldn't ask for any better care for her. Her educational needs have been met by all teachers and even teachers she doesn't have love her. I know as a parent I play a huge role in my child's educational career, Being involved not only at school but also at home is so important in a child's life. Lawler teachers go above and beyond for their students and families! I am so blessed that my child attends this school and is loved so much!

My autistic son attends this school. It has been nothing but stressful it fighting to get him the help he needs. I went here as a child myself and thought the school was great. Being a parent of a child with special needs has opened my eyes. This school may be great for the typical child with no disabilty, but for the child with the disabilty it is my opinion that educational needs are frequently overlooked. Teachers don't spend the time needed with these kids or at least mine.

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.
