I am a parent and a teacher at a different school district. I did my student teaching at LOES, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The students, teachers, and administration are exemplary. It is unbelievable watching children walk down the halls and participate in class! They are so well behaved. The teachers are adoring. Test scores are consistently high. They have an excellent Academic Team. What else can one say about this school?

I went to Marshall County schools from day one to the end of my school years. I have four children within the Lone Oak School system. Need I say more? Lone Oak is clearly the one school in KY that really does care about the children.

Lone Oak is continually seeking ways to improve our school to benefit the children and make us the number 1 school in Kentucky. I couldn't ask for a better school to send my child to-thanks LOES!

My daughter just started LOES this year and our experience there so far as been great. Everyone there always seems happy, and it is a very professional environment. My daugters teacher is so caring and truly wants her children to succeed. They encourage parents to be involved with everything possible. The principal is a very nice man, and if he sees you in public he will talk to you like he has always known you. Our time there so far has been a positive experience, and my son who will be starting school in a couple years will attend there as well.

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.
