I think the teachers are doing an excellent job and both of my children are doing extremely well. The only problem I have is I think during lunch and break there should be more teachers in charge of the children instead of the aides. The teachers are the ones that should be responsible for the children.

I myself think that the staff at the Elementary School is doing a WONDERFUL job. My child attends and I feel he is getting an outstanding education. Evidently they are doing something right with the test score they are accumulating. There are sites that this past years can be checked and from what I saw these kids are really scoring up at the top of the state levels in reading and science. Great Job!

Should spend more time teaching the childern and less time worrying about new playground equipment and designated smoking areas for teachers and aids.

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.
