This is a great school. Everyone from the top down, is warm inviting, and will know your child's name. This is my sons 2nd year there. The staff and teachers go out there way to make your excel.

We just completed our first year at Northside Elementary in K. As a first time parent I was very nervous. We had a fabulous year with the BEST KINDERGARTEN TEACHER - Debbie Burdine!!! She is kind warm, loving and a lot of fun!! My daughter grew academically, socially, and emotionally. It was great to know my daughter was in good hands. She truly goes above and beyond!! Overall the school is very friendly. I was a little disappointed in the parent involvement. I volunteered once a week and enjoyed every minute. The more I was there, the more comfortable I became. P. T. O . needs improvement! My only complaint is they are very into 'rewards'.

This is one of the most welcoming, yet safe schools you may ever enter. The staff and faculty work very hard to engage both student and parent. One fabulous program to note is the Science Club and its creator, Mrs. Ison. Way to go Northside!

Northside is a very welcoming and friendly school. There are many extracurricular activities free of charge. The building is clean and everyone seems to take pride in the school. The teachers and principal are hands on and the PTO is very supportive.

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.
