Hendron LoneOak Ele. Is by far the best choice I made for my 6 year old- It feels Welcoming and like a family- They encourage parent participation in every way and you can tell the Staff really work together in a positive way. I feel comfortable having my child there 8 hours a day and know they are doing their best to provide the best education in a safe environment- 8 years ago when I had the chance to choose any school in the district- my first instinct was HLOE but I chose another and regret it now- But my 2nd and 3rd child will be attending HLOE and I know they will be in the best school in the Paducah Area!

We relocated to Western KY last year, and my children now attend HLOE. We love it. The staff really went out of their way to help our children adjust to a new school. We are so impressed with the staff''s high standards & expectations for the kids, yet the lovingly nuture each child also. Bravo!

The school is dedicated to the success of each child. They treat each child as an individual and the staff is very respectful, and encouraging. Each morning the children are greeted at the door by their name and by cheerful staff. The parents are very involved. The principle (mr 'b') leads by example.

Hendron Lone Oak was my daughters' first school and now my grandchildren are carring the banner. I have one grandson in HLO and his brother is now in LOM and they have a sister fixing to start HLO. HLO is a wonderful school and the staff and teachers are the best. You will no find another school that shows so much concern about the students and Family as HLO. It is the BEST

My Son attended HLOE from PreK through 5th. Overall, could be worse. GT classes are only offered to certain children, not based on ability in my opinion. My Son is in the Duke TIP (note: they did not refer him) but still he could not access GT classes. Paducah City schools have better clubs/activities. Parents must be proactive no matter where you live. If you don't advocate and oversee your child's education, no one will. HLOE included. We were glad to be out of there, but LOMS is worse. I don't think any schools are there for kids anymore. They are businesses. Only the affluent parents seem to be active. I never got the impression that they cared about my concerns/views as a low-income single parent. Summary: Could be much better, could be worse.

My daughters both went to HLO. I found that school to be the best in the area. Before we moved to Paducah, I 'school shopped' and chose HLO over any other school. The teachers were excellent and provided my children with the foundation necessary to be successful in their further educational challenges. There are many programs available at HLO to support students with and with out disabilities. HLO is now overcrowded due to the number of parents 'electing' to bring their child(ren) to this school from other districts.

My childen both attend HLOE. I have no regrets at all. MY children make very good grades and are well taken care of there. I do not feel that this school labels children. My oldest child has ADHD and learns at a slower pace than other students his age. The teachers have bent over backwords to help him stay on track and learn at the same leavel as his class mates. A childs education starts in the home. If you want your child to be on his/her best behavior or to do well in school, you must work on it at home. The teachers and staff can't do it all. Parents and gardians are the #1 key in a childs education. If your child seems to be having problems in school contact the teacher to compair notes and go fron there. Don't expect the teachers to do it alone.

My child has not been accepted well at this school. I feel they are more worried about the way their school looks than about trying to take care of the NEEDS of their students. If a child is not what they think they should be than they are labled a PROBLEM! HLOE doesn't like to have problem children known in their school. Well I'll let everyone know this school has A LOT OF PROBLEMS! They need to get in touch with their students needs and not just shove them to the side if they don't fit their school's standards. Some of the teachers push their students and don't actually teach, they just keep going and don't worry about the students who may be left behind. What happened to NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND?

I think this school has lack of communication problems and I feel that if a child makes more than five F's a year that child should be considered to be held back. My child made 9 F's in fifth grade and has been passed on to 6th grade. I feel that the school did not want to be bothered and did not fulfill to teach what the child needed to pass.

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.
