I have a child in the 2nd grade. He is progressing very well at Camp Taylor Elementary. The teachers that are in this school are wonderful. The renovation that has taken place is a huge improvement. I will have to say that there needs to be more PTA involvement. There could be a lot more activities in this school if parents would get involved!!

Unfortunately, parent reviews of this school date back from 2003 - 2005. Today's date is April 2010! That's the issue in a nutshell! PTA parents are great but very few. Very little parent involvement resulting in low scores and extracurricular activities, which is one complaint of this school. You can't expect teachers to do everything without parent or community support or involvement.

Due to conflicts with my work schedule I have not had the opportunity to get very involved with the PTA but I believe the option is available. I have two children who have already graduated and one currently enrolled. I have been happy with the overall experience at Camp Taylor. I do think making more extracuricular activities available would be a major plus especially for grades 3 to 5 (Music and maybe a sport or two!). I have not yet had any direct contact with the principle to give an opinion on her.

Dear Parents: I just want to say that I am very pleased with Mrs. Whiteley. She seems to be doing a great job of getting involved with the schools problems and correcting them. She is facing the problems head on and doing something about them, Not hiding in her office. I just want to say thanks to her for caring so much.

This is my son's first full year at Camp Taylor, he transferred in the middle of last year & so far we have been happy. There is a new principal so, maybe the parent who wrote before will get her wish of more parent input!

Most of the teachers I have seen are very good with all the children. The Office Staff is great. They know every child in the school by name.There are so many parents who want to volunteer but the principal never wants to have meetings with us to discuss our ideas. I would like to see more PTA Meetings at night (one a month) to let the parents know what is on the agenda. I miss the school dances, and I feel the Spring and Fall Festivals could be better if Parents were allowed to input ideas. Don't get me wrong, Camp Taylor is a good school for education. My son has learned so much there, He was reading after the first month of attending school. I just think it could be so much more if Parents were able to put ideas and thoughts into it.

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.
