My son has enjoyed Pride Elementary from K - 4. The principal and staff show genuine care and devotion to every child. I am convinced his academic experience is on par with the best elementary schools in Kentucky. Because of the location and mixture of ethnic backgrouds of the student population he is also receiving a cultural education as well. Parents are encouraged to participate in variousl activities giving Pride a feeling a small private school. (without the fees) We are looking forward to the final year for our son and will miss the school very much when we have to move on.

The criteria that they teach is excellent. I have come to observe this school before and the kids seemed to really enjoy learning here. The teachers were really nice and sweet to the children.

I think that my child gets the absolute BEST care at Pride. She loves it. She was scared but all the nice teachers helped her feel closer to her friends. I just want to say that this is a very great school. ;)

This is a wonderful school with caring teachers. My children go to school everyday knowing the best is expected of them and secure to know they are being nurtured and well educated! A+++ in my book!

I feel the over all assestment of the students from the teacher is clearly wrong and that they try to easy road to learning. Under assessing and not paying attention to detail is the key to why our kids that go to pride is not getting the education that they deserve. Futhuremore, I am not taking away the rosposiability of the parent / parents but when my kids leave my house for 8 hrs out the day I want them to get the most out of there day. Not learn how to play a different game everyday.

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.

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.
