I have a daughter starting 5th grade this year. She has had excellent teachers every year. We moved out of state for 6 months but moved back because of the quality of education.

This is such an excellent school, that I'm having a hard time finding a school in the area that I'm moving to that comes close to the level of excellence. I'm thankful for the standard they have. I have been involved with this school for 10 years, having two daughters that has attended. The oldest in her 6th grade year was awarded her first college scholarship.

There is no wonder that this is the #1 school in the state...we have the best principal(now and before), we hae the best teachers, the best teacher assistants. The thing I love most is that the don't try to hide what is going on in the school. Parents are welcome for involvement, we know just what our kids are learning and how. I love this school!

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.
