I really have to say this has been an excellent school for my child. I had to transfer him from his home school because every year it was one thing after another. I went through a lot of turmoil over the home school I had my child at and only regret that I did not pull my child out and send him to Eisenhower sooner. I would absolutely recommend this school to anyone interested in having a star student.

I moved to Louisville from a very rural area and was concerned about not knowing anyone or anything about the schools. I am VERY pleased with Eisenhower! My daughter loves it, does very well and her teacher (Mrs. Coslow) is AWESOME! I couldn't be happier! THANK-YOU!!!

I have nothing but good things to say about Eisenhower. We came from a parochial school to the JCPS system when my daughter was starting third grade because of the expense. I agonized over the decision. Now I am so glad it happened, and I wish she had gone to Eisenhower from the start.

I adore this school! I have two children attending this school. My oldest is there for the 5th year and my youngest just started kindergarten. The principal/teachers/staff are wonderful and they really make me feel as if they care very much. I feel very lucky that my children are there.

This is the best Elementary school I have ever been to, I remember it like it was yesterday. I had a principal named John Cola and an excellent teacher named Mrs. Jordan. She taught me most of the things I know now. Thank you Eisenhower Elementary.

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.
