I love Camargo because this is a great school. The principal and teachers are great and they really care and keep me updated about the progress of my child.

We transferred to this school from Stanton Elem. I wish I had reviewed it better. I am very impressed with my daughters 3rd. grade teachers, they are very helpful, energetic, and from what I have observed from the classroom, very good at what they do. I really don't know any of the other teachers yet. Unfortunately I am not at all impressed with the principal. His main goal is 'attendance'. While I agree that attendance is very important I believe that Math, Reading, Writing, Etc. should be stressed as well and I don't get this at all from Mr. Schneider. The school report card is a 4 and the test scores from 2005-2006 just made me cringe. Perhaps if this school had a principal who actually cared about our child's education and less about the money his school receives for their attendance maybe this school could improve.

I am very proud of the accomplishments my son's have made through the helpful and caring staff at Camargo Elementary. My oldest son has been on the honor roll since 1st grade and the teachers keep him interested in learning. My youngest son started off a bit slow and has really came a long way with the help of his teacher's.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
