Hite is a wonderful school. Can't say enough about Mr. Hagan , teachers, and staff. My daughter attended Hite from K-2 and had a wonderful experience there. I only wish we hadn't moved out of the state. We miss Hite and the 'school family' we had there.

I have had 3 boys in Hite. They do a great job in getting the students ready for middle school. The parents and teachers are very involved. The principal Mr. Hagan is always available and take great interest in all his students.

I absolutley believe in this school. I have two children that attend Hite and I couldn't be happier. I truly think that my kids couldn't get a better education anywhere else. The staff are very competant and extrememly involved with the advancement of every student. I cannot recommend this school enough!

We love Hite Elementary. Having come from private school, we were welcomed to the 'Hite Family' with open arms. Our faculty and staff take great care to provide the kids with a safe, academically sound, fun environment to thrive in. The teachers have the ability to teach in such a way that each childs' learning needs are met and they are kept enthusiastic about the material that needs to be covered. Among the things that impresses me about Hite is the fact that our principle Tim Hagan and his great staff know the name of every child coming thru the door. Our school is a 'Pace-Setting' school with a full complement of special area teachers as well as extra-curricular activities that keep our parents involved as well as our students. Hite is a fine, culterally diverse school that has shaped well-rounded, successful children ready to move on to new situations.

This school is one in a million. The teachers are 100% devoted to helping all children and the pta involvement is just incredible. The hospitality you receive from the moment you walk in the door makes you feel right at home. The diversity and acceptance of all people is just beyond words. This is not a place where you will find people just passing by each other. Its a place where you here hello. Goodmorning, can I help you etc. I love Hite and my child will succeed because of the dedication of the teachers that reach outside of their classroom and help other children

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.
