I attended Mill Creek as a child and so has my now 18 y/o and currently my 7 y/o attends. This is an amazing school with awesome principal and staff. All the teachers are great with both students and parents. They love to have parents participate and visit the school whenever they would like and I have at least once a week. The teachers are amazing with students with patience and loving attitude. Best school by far.

Mill Creek Elementary School is welcoming. Just driving up the lane to the school, you know you are somewhere really special. When you walk in the front door, you are greeted with smiles. The classrooms are alive with learning, students beam with pride. Artwork of students are in every nook and cranny as well as work displaying academic achievement. Mill Creek is a wonderful place for a child to learn.

An awsome school with a awsome group of teachers and staff. The Principal is one of the best in Jefferson County Public Schools

My son attended Mill Creek from 1st thru 5th grades. I also have 5 neices and nephews who have attended various years. Because of this I have had the opportunity to meet the majority of the staff. I found them all to be easy to work with and very good at their jobs. The teachers were great at keeping us informed on progress, and providing us with ways to help the kids at home with assignments. None of our kids ever complained that they didn't like their teacher. They did occasionally complain the teachers were mean because they gave out homework- especially reading. I saw it as a good thing and one day they will too.

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.
