This school is absolutely amazing! My daughter is graduting from the fifth grade this year and we will truly miss the staff. The neighborhood envolvement is outstanding and the quality of students is very high. Great School!

Our 2 youngest children have been privileged to have attended ACE. We became part of the ACE family the second year it was opened and have been very satisfied with our experience!! Sadly our middle child completes his time at the school this year. The teachers and administration truly care about the well-being of the children and are dedicated to providing the best education possible! A large part of the school's success is also due to the incredible parental and community involvement. We highly recommend this school to those people in the Lexington area!! On a side note, the middle school and high school are also some of the best in the school system.

We have been incredibly impressed with every aspect of this school. From the teachers, to the administrators, to the support staff, the curriculum, the facilities- everything has been great. The fact that it's in a nice, quiet neighborhood is an added bonus.

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.
