As a former student, I hated this school the food had hair in it and when we had hot of they was green it was bad. The teacher was mean some was but all was mean. The bus driver are mean. So will I will give this school a star.

Our school is a wonderful place for our children to be educated. Security is excellent and all educational opportunities are well above the other public schools in the area!

I really don't think Pikeville Elementary is all it's cracked up to be. Academically, I don't see that it has been any more challenging for my child than her previous school and there is a lot more peer pressure here. I agree with a previous parent, it seems as if the child's parent isn't a dr. or lawyer then they aren't important. We are changing schools this coming school year. Pikeville Elementary isn't what we thought.

Education wise? This school is awesome. I wish they would do something about all the children who are being bullied. It seems if your mother or father isn't a doctor or lawyer then your nothing at this school.

Pikeville Elementary School is the best elementary school in Kentucky if not in the US. The teachers are caring yet demanding in their standards for their students and themselves. Pikeville Elementary has the highest standards and highest quality education a child can get. Students are their number one concern and it shows. I would put Pikeville Elementary students up against any students in any state in the country. Students, teachers, school level administrators and parents work together to create the best possible learning environment. High quality teachers aren't their only asset, involved parents that support students and teachers are an integral part of what makes Pikeville Elementary work. A small school nestled in the mountains of eastern Kentucky where students are number one. What more could you ask for?

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.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

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.
