I have been impressed by this small school. I have grown up in Johnson county and attended the county school system. I decided to move my children to Piantsville for the one on one attention the teachers are able to give due to the smaller classroom size. The pricipal has impressed me as he is outside every morning greeting the children rain or shine and the kids really feel comfortable with him and his staff. They know my children by name and allow me to be a part of their education in any way possible. The teachers are wonderful and truly treat each student with respect no matter who their parents are or how much money they have. I know in this small town over the years people have gotten the impression Paintsville is the "Rich" school well I have not seen this to be an issue at all. The effort to make each child feel a part of the school and education process is impressive. I would suggest Paintsville to anyone who wants their childs education to come first.

Overall excellent school. Exceptional afterschool program and academic programs, lots of extra-curricular activites. Teacher involvement could stand a little improvement but this is different for each classroom. Principal is extremely personable and very involved. I like the fact that at PES, kids are individuals, not numbers. School is very clean and well maintained, lunch program is great. Safe environment. Good support from the BOE for funding for all groups and projects, not just sports. The gym does need a new or better air conditioner but other than that, there is no other place I'd rather send my kids to.

My children are receiving a wonderful education at Paintsville Elementary! We have been very impressed with the dedicated teachers and staff. They have made our children feel welcome and loved. We really like the small school atmosphere; and the attention to individual student needs is very impressive. As professionals who have recently re-located to Paintsville, we were very pleased with the long-standing academic tradition of Paintsville Independent Schools. This school system maintains excellent CTBS and CATS test scores, as well as acheives some of the highest ACT scores in the state. The majority of PHS graduates attend college, graduate, and succeed in varied careers. Paintsville Elementary School builds the strong academic foundation on which students can flourish...they teach more than the answers to a state test. They boast high expecations and clear academic success. I highly reccommend this school, as opposed to any other local school.

This is the best school in the county. The teachers take time for each student not just the smartest child. The are taught a well rounded education, not just test questions. If I had 30 children, everyone would get their education at Paintsville.

I think this school is a great school because they encourage parent envolvment inside the school as well as the classroom. The teachers invite you to be a hands on parent and that is wonderfull.

Paintsville Elementary is a great school because of its size and location. Everyone knows everyone else in this small town so there is a big trust factor when your children are going to a school where friends and family work. However, because of its small size, funding is low and our children do not get the books, equipment, etc. that they need. Being a member of the PTO, I would very much like to see more parent involvement. This is the only way to insure our children are going to get their educational needs met.
