I'm posting my review because my experience differs greatly from someone else on here. And to set the record straight on a few things....In art class, they do create many things however most of it goes onto the walls at the school, to show off what the kids have done. Children ARE permitted to talk, just like where I went to school, you couldn't talk if it got too loud, and for the first 10 minutes there is no talking so the children will eat. I have 2 children at school here, my 3rd will be going next year and we are all very happy with it. One of my children is also in the gifted program. It's got high ranking and overall good reviews, I would recommened living in this district for sure.

My child has just completed third grade at Pembroke Elementary School. She has had a wonderful experience. All of the teachers and administrative staff have been wonderful. I am very pleased with my child's experience.

My son is only in Kindergarten but Pembroke Elementary School has proven to be a huge disappointment. There is very little communication between school and home. Children are not permitted to socialize at lunch time. Mass punishment is practiced quite frequently. My child's class frequently loses their recess and have to spend that time quietly with their head down. Art class each week proves to be a large joke. My K student has never once painted or ever brought home a turkey, or a pumpkin, or a Christmas tree of construction paper. I feel that it is definitely not the best place for my child's education foundation to be layed. If there was anything I could do to move my child to another school, I would be first in line to leave the Pembroke Elementary family.

My son just finished his 5th grade year at Pembroke Elementary. It's the best school that he has ever went to. We're a military family. Pembroke was his 4 elementary school. The principal, the teacher's and staff were great! The custodians and lunch workers were always nice. It's been a great experienced for me and my child. There doing a great job!

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.
