My daughter has been in this school since the 06-07 school year. She is doing well, and is happy. Her teachers are supportive, and creative. I couldn't ask for a better school

My children have been attending MES since the 2005-2006 school year. My son's first year was a little rough because he had never been any type of classroom enviroment or around so many children at one time, but he has adjusted well with the help and support of teachers and staff at MES. He is now in the 2nd grade and making A's and B's. My daughter, who is in the 1st grade, also makes A's and B's. We live outside the school district (in a different county altogether), but it was never a problem and I am very excited to have my children attend their school as opposed to the school that in my opinion isn't as good a school. Keep up the good work!

We enrolled our son in Kindergarten at Morgantown Elementary and he is now in the 4th grade there. Each year, the quality of his academic instruction has not only met, but exceeded my hopes and expectations. The school motto, 'Patriots CARE', exemplifies the standards and goals at M.E.S. of cooperation, attitude, responsibility and effort. We've had mulitple extracurricular opportunities including musical programs, jr. pro basketball, Academic team meets as well as activities for children to learn community involvement such as the St. Jude's Mathathon and Jump Rope for Heart. I have found parent involvement at M.E.S to be very welcomed and appreciated. Recent endeavors 'to leave no child behind' are programs such as Fast Forward, Smart Boards, and Thoughtful Schools. I am thankful and proud of the M.E.S.' status as a Blue Ribbon School. Congratulations and great job!

I am very dissapointed with this school. My son is in the second grade and is not getting the attention he or other classmates need. Everytime he ask for help, he will get a little but not enough to understand. He would be headed to the teachers desk and she would tell him to sit down. I don't know about other parents but I am tired of my son not getting the help he needs. They always talk about no students being left behind. Out of 22 students in my son's class, only 6 made the honor roll. Now what does that tell you.

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.
