My son started there this year and I love their safety practices. It makes me feel better about him being these. He has the absolute best teacher and teachers aide. I can tell the both really care for the kids there and he is learning so much because if this. I wish their pick up was a little better, but I have nothing negative to say about London elementary.

I have two children who attend school here, with a 3rd starting next year. I really enjoy the safety and security this school offers, but the pick up is a bit ridiculous. I also wish the would give a bit more notice when sending out notes about upcoming events. I feel like they spring them on us a lot. Other than that, however, I really enjoy the school and feel that my children have really improved in their education.

My 2 children and I really like London Ele. I've never had any major problems with any of the staff, everyone is always very nice and helpful. I especially like our principle, Mrs Bowling, she's always friendly and helpful too!

My 3 children ages 19, 10, and 6 have all attended London Elementary. Through the years, they have all had good teachers but some have been exceptional. There have of course been some minor issues over the years but I found that most of the teachers were most helpful in resolving any problems. There are a few teacher's that have their picks and punish/reward based on those favorites but those teachers are the minority ( mostly 3rd & 4th grade). I read a previous derigitory comment about Mrs Bowling, the principal, and must say that I disagree with the assessment. I have found that Mrs Bowling is very accessible, especially if there is a problem. I have found her to be very empathetic, helpful and always open to listening to my concerns or suggestions. Overall, a wonderful school and staff.

The school is beautiful, my kids love it and there is always chances for parents to get involved. Only one complaint the principle has alot to be desire as far as being available and when she is available she is useless, no offense but she could be great if she could listen instead of having all the answers before you ask the question.

London Elementary School is an awesome place for children to learn and build friendships. The teachers set very high expectations for the students and work to ensure success in all students.

I am a teacher at London Elementary and I think that though there have been some problems in the past, London is becoming a very progressive school and I expect things to become much better in the very near future. The new school building along with several other instructional and disciplinary changes will definitely have a positive impact on the students and the overall school atmosphere. I only see good things in the future for London Elementary.

I think that this school needs to have more participation and comunication with the parents instead of looking at us like we are a burden to her and when children need a little extra help the teacher should be able to provide that but they can't because they have to many kids to one teacher.

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.
