This school is wonderful. All values and academic standards start from the principal to the teachers. Everybody in Rineyville keeps high standards while being warm and caring. Mr Coffey, the principal is by far, the best principal we have ever met. (We are military so we have been in three elementary schools- three states so far) He knows all the kids by name (and the parents), he cares and he knows what the kids are capable of, and he makes sure the kids know this. Is wonderful to see how the kids love him. The teachers are great, they work with the kids one by one; they help the kids who struggle in some areas and challenge the kids who have it easy in other areas. Ms Cockriel was the sweetest and toughest teacher. People in the front office will always help you with a smile. Wonderful school!

We are a military family and when we got to KY, we were lucky enough to have our kids attend Rineyville Elementary. There is not enough space to tell you about how amazing this school is. Mr Coffey is the best principal ever!!! Mrs. Lucas is wonderful and so caring. Both our boys have had wonderful, caring, energetic and awesome teachers (Ms. Shaw and Ms. Thurman). A parent couldn't ask for better. We had to move, so the new school has big shoes to fill!! We just have to say, Thank You Rineyville Elementary for everything you have done for our kids!!

Wonderful school! From the principal, Mr Coffey, (who knows each kid by name!)to the teachers (mainly Mrs Cockriel) to everybody in the school. As a military family, we move and we have had our taste in schools. Ryneyville is by far the best! They do a great job teaching and they care! Love this school!!!

There are simply not enough stars to be able to rate this school! I have never been somewhere where the staff cared as deeply as this staff does for these students. They do not simply stop working when the bell rings at the end of the day, but are continually looking for new ideas to incorporate into their lesson plans. I highly recommend any military families that are moving to the area to find their way into this community if you want your children to succeed and be loved in the process!

The rating for this school should be much higher! I am so impressed with this school and it's staff! The principal, Mr. Coffey, goes above and beyond for these kids! My daughter wakes up everyday and asks if she is going to school that day, and gets disappointed if I tell her she has the day off. I am so blessed to have found this school for my daughter!!!

I LOVE Rineyville Elementary. My daughter is in first grade now. She had the most loving, caring Kindergarten teacher last year (Mrs. Blanc). Mrs. Blanc made my daughter's first year in school a wonderful, unforgettable one. She loved and cared for her students immensely. And now she's in first grade, and her teacher this year has been wonderful as well. I could not be happier with this school. The Principal knows every student by name, and he always talks to me whenever I see him. Last year on the last day of school, the principal and all of the teachers stood out on the sidewalk and waved at all of the students as they left on the buses for summer break. They really do care about their students at this school.

I LOVE Rineyville Elementary. My daughter is in Kindergarten and her teacher is amazing. We love the principal and vice principal, in fact I haven't met a single staff member who hasn't greeted me with a smile and positive attitude! There ae regular events at the school that help to bring the community together and makes the school feel like a family. I'm so happy with RES.

I have had an over great experience with this school so far. This is my daughters 3rd year there and although she wasnt happy with the first two years in the preschool program but she is very happy with the kindergarden class she has now! I am very impressed with the compassion and attention that mr coffee principal has toward his students and their families! There is also a great community involvement there and a great sense of pride in the school and children!

My son has attended Rineyville Elementary for 3 years, K-2. I cannot say how impressed I have been with all of his teachers, the guidance counselor and the principal. He has ADHD and they have all been extremely accomodating and supportive. Because of this he is very successful despite many challenging days. All schools should be this helpful.

Rineyville Elementary is an amazing school. We have had two children that have attended here. Our son went from 2nd - 5th and our daughter has gone from K - 5th. All of the staff is active in the children's lives and shows great care and concern for them with their learning and personal lives. The encouragment and support that they receive is the best that I have ever seen in a school. The principal has done an outstanding job. It is located in a fairly small town but this is great because you really get that person relationship with everyone there. I grew up in Hardin County School and am fully aware of every one of them. This is by far the best elementary school in the district.

My children have attended this school for three years. The Principal knows every students name, parents, he is very involved. My children have blossomed here. They are challenged, and the teachers are very involved and approachable.

My wife and myself have volunteered in Louisville schools for over 12 years, and we can not get this school to use our service. We have no children left in school, but we love to volunteer. I wish they excepted outsiders help more.

My child attended this school for K-5. We then moved to another state where she is currently in her senior year of high school. She is an outstanding student who has continuously earned outstanding scores on both school and national tests. Her foundation at Rineyville provided her with the tools she needed to excel.
