My daughter finished the 5 grade this year. She had over 950 A/R points thanks to the encouragement she received from Mrs. Brown and all the other teachers. She loved this school as did my oldest daughter that is now a teacher heself in northern Ky.

I agree that this school is a babysitting school. My daughter goes there and it seems like I do all the homework for her every night. I do know they are still over crowded, although the wine pine school has taken away some kids. I wish i was in a different district for my daughter.

Cold Hill School in London Kentucky is all about sending the work home to the parents and taking tax dollars from the parents so the kids can have a babysitter during the day. Cold Hill School in London is nothing more than a daycare with the word school attached to its name.

We lucked out when we moved to London and just happened to buy a home in the Cold Hill district in 2005. We are now sadly moving out of state and hope we find a school just like cold hill, as the experience has been great. Teachers and assistants are all wonderful and the principal Mrs. Jones really cares about the welfare of the children. The school is small and it makes it more personal.

I have two children in this school-my older kid in the 4th grade is for the second year in this school. The second is in kindergarten. Both of them love school and have never passed a negative comment about it. A little more effort on the part of the teacher and students to improve the overall academic performances in test would be good. The principal, staff and teachers are very open to suggestions which I appreciate.

i completely and totally disagree with the first review .my daughter is getting ready to be a second grader at cold hill and we could not be happier with the faculty . each day it is a joy to see how eager she is to go to school .when a 7 year old little girl WANTS TO GO TO SCHHOL ...that is telling me all i need to know ..she recieved 4 awards this year and many words of praise and smiles from all i saw . i am proud of cold hill ..and my daughter .maybe the first reviewer needed to be less of a critic and more involved in the learning process ..parents are teachers also .

I feel that this school good use a little lesson on communication skills and what is a priority in there school. They are so focused on those test. I understand that they are important for the kids but we have lost track of who should teach. Parents seem to be sending there kids to a babysitter by day and being a teacher to there kids at night. The teachers seem to be grading there kids but where is the work they are grading. How can you get a grade from kicking a ball or playing basketball? They treat the parents as if they are beanth them. My child and family have never had such bad experience as we have at COLDHILL.

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.
