My child had Mrs. Williams this year for first grade. She was an amazing teacher. My son can read anything now and he likes to read. I wish Mrs. Williams was teaching second grade so we could have her next year.

Miss. Alford is a new teacher to Cane run this year and she is AMAZING! My daughter was home schooled for 1st grade after a really bad experience at Shacklette for Kindergarten. Because of Cane run's test scores I requested 2 times for my daughter not to attend Cane Run and was denied both times. I have to say I am VERY pleased and so is she, she LOVES going to school everyday! Miss Alford is a HUGE blessing for us and we couldn't be happier with her. As far as diversity goes there is not much of that at Cane run and that is a shame. After this year we will be moving out of JCPS school district, I am so very tired of being bullied by them and feel we deserve a say in our children's education! By the way I do think the principal is VERY involved and tries very hard to improve the school :)

I have had 3 children at cane run. One just started at Farnsely Middle. One is in 1 and another in 4th. All three of my kids have learned more there than some kids their age group. They are all advid readers and this school promotes it greatly. I have one in advanced classes. And one that needed a little help along the way with him having aspergers. They work with the kids. There has only been one teacher last year in fact, that i ever had any trouble with their teaching and their actions. Other than that we have been there for the past 4 years and I am glad they are there. They are learning and achieving more than some other kids in that school and at other surrounding schools. It has a great magnet program and teaches the children how to be hands on and be better people for the future with these teaching. I will be there for the next 3 years. And I will tell you that we have grown attached to some of the staff, and it is really nice when they know you just by your face in person, or name over the phone. Make me feel good about who I am leaving my children with all day long.

Thank you, Cane Run, for everything you did for my kindergarten grandson. His mother had passed away just a few months before he started school. Ms. Tomblin helped him stay focused and made learning 'fun'. He will be starting first grade next year well-prepared.

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.
