May Valley Is an excellent school with exceptional leadership and teachers. They offer a lot to the students and will go the extra mile to help a child.

Posted August 15, 2013

This is my childs first year at this school. She enjoys being around other children and playing/learning. My only problem is the staff. My child is in prek and was at school all day with a fever of 102 and snot stuck to her face. I was never called or alerted when I picked her up that she wasn't feeling well. Also, they apparently don't make water readily available, which seems ridiculous. I was told that if I wanted my daughter to have access to water than I needed to provide it for the other children in the class as well. I am also not allowed to pack her lunch unless I provide it for everyone in the class, which seems outrageous. The teachers for headstart/prek need to get it together. I am seriously considering pulling her out of the program and putting her into another school.

We love this school. My son enjoys it very much, his only complaints are about the lunches and wanting more recess. Even so, he never wants to stay home unless he is really sick. The teachers and entire staff are kind, encouraging, and skilled at making learning interesting. Every person working for May Valley is truly dedicated to each child.

This is an excellent school. My kids are challenged and I know I am leaving them in safe, caring environment each day. The teachers and administration are accessible and friendly.

Excellent school. It is clear that they feel all students are important. The students' social and educational growth is the focus of every employee. They are serious about education and they have fun doing it. I have a child in 3rd grade and one in 5th. My kids have learned from teachers, fellow students, janitors, parents, community members, cooks, aides, and administrators. May Valley faculty & staff work hard to maximize student learning in all that they do. The school celebrates student successes to promote a very 'paws-itive' atmosphere.

Excellent school... We know our child is getting the education he deserves. The administration and teachers go above and beyond. We could not be more pleased with the education our child is getting.

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.
