I just want to say I came to this school when I was in first and second grade. Mrs, Parker was my first grade teacher and Mrs Wilson was my second grade teacher That has been so so long ago but it was a great school back then and I know it still is today. I am a 1993 gratuate so how long it has been. Would love to reconnect with classmates and my teachers.

I love this little school. My child is an extremely smart and gifted child, and the school has really devloped activities to nurture the child with a hunger for knowledge. Since the new principal (Mr. Holderman) came to the school in 2007-2008 shool year, I feel that the school has progressed at an extreme rate.God Bless This Man! The school now has Math Club & an Academic Team That placed runner up in regionals. I'm so proud for my child to be a part of these activities and this school! God Bless Perryville Elementary School Students and Staff!!!

I really like Perryville Elementary. It has been a great experience for my son, and for our family. I have never had a bad experience with any of the teachers or staff. Everything has been wonderful. I really appreciate the parent/teacher communication from Perryville Elementary. I would recommend this school, and the community to anyone thinking of living here.

Perryville Elementary is a Great school to send your children. The office staff, teachers & volunteers are top notch! They have good student/teacher/relationships. As well as smaller classroom settings so that teachers can spend more individual time with every child.(per my child who is now a junior at Boyle Co. High School) It has been a very positive experience for both of my children. Perryville is the only choice for our family.

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.
