This school is filled with exceptional students and staff. Our current administration is so supportive of each teacher and understands the research-based educational tools needed for student growth. We have so many areas for the kids to shine in and out of the classroom. Whether it be our academic team, afternoon clubs, k-kids, STLP group, robotics club, honors chorus and festivals, orchestra, or band, students have the full support of staff and peers to branch out and display their individual talents and skills.

The most dedicated teachers go above and beyond for the caring and nurturing and improving these children in every walk of their lives.

I am in 9th grade now and I think that if it wasn't for the teachers there then I wouldn't have made it as far as I have. I know this doesn't have anything to do with what you want to know. I went to this school in 1st, 2nd 4th and 5th. I loved every minute as far it is my fav. school. I had two of the best teachers. In 1st and 2nd I had Ms. Kidman. And in 4th and 5th I had Ms. Nash.

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.
