this is one of the best elementary schools if not in kentucky but in louisville. i currently have 2 children in the school, one is in the 5th grade and the second in 3rd grade. my 2 daughters went through the school also- one is doing well in central an my second daughter is in JCTMS. The teachers are awesome- they love their jobs and are very friendly-the principal is simply terrific- she loves the students and of course her job; discipline is enforced without been harsh with the students. i simply love the school and i am thankful to God that 2 of my children already passed through the school and 2 are currently there.

The school is dedicated to the educational foundation that is needed to succeed. My child was previously in the number one private school here in the county, he struggled through out the school year and I was quiklu told that my child had various learning disabilities and the teacher was eager to label him in some sort of diagnosis, ADHD, developemental delays, needing medication , they even went as far as to hold him back a year. Upon changing him to Klondike he has been the star-pupil, he is eager to learn and is actually excited! He has carried straight A's and earned a writing and science award this year. If you have teachers that CARE about the children, they will suceed. The teachers there are very informative and keep me up with the class and future projects. I am thankful for the school and all the professionals there, they could have easily kept my child in the same rut as the private school, they believed in my child and his abilities.

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.
