I have had mostly a poor experience with this entire school system. Special needs area, too. I believe this school needs to get up to pace in almost every area. Polite teachers, staff; yet, ineffective on most levels and should take a look at how other more successful schools have changed to better themselves. Standardization is a huge concern. Pop machines for children! This is a pre-k through 4th grade school! Poor communication- taking for granted what staff believes a parent may or may not know. I wished I would have interviewed and met who would be helping to build a foundation of education for my children and I pray things only move in a more positive direction. Issues and/or problems resolved in a somewhat timely manner; however, considering it's my child(ren) - timeliness is of utmost importance! Be sure to look past "nice" words and get to know who will influence your child. They make a good first impression; however, that is short-lived. Some teachers and staff HAVE been wonderful, understanding, caring etc. Most have NOT- superficial. Be an advocate for your child at all times here. Comments below shouldn't contain names of teachers per website rules guidelines.

My daughter has gone to SEE since kindergarten and now my son is beginning in preschool. South Edmonson is a wonderful school. The teachers are great, all around, a great school and atmosphere.

All three of my daughters have went to Edmonson County Schools since kindergarten and preschool. For the most part some of the teachers are outstanding, but there are a few that need some improvements or just plain need to retire. Mrs. Jeannie Basil, Mrs. Kathy Sasse, Mrs. Becky Saltzman, Mrs. Carol Stice, Mr. Greg Tyree at South Edmonson are outstanding. I have not gotten to know some of the other teachers as well. All three of my daughters love these teachers to death and think the world of them. If you have a special needs child, you couldn't ask for better involvement with their education. If it had not been for the caring of these teachers, I would not have found out my youngest has ADHD. Thanks to Mrs. Tyra, and the other special education teachers for helping out and making a huge difference in my child.

My children have been in Edmonson County schools for the last 8 years and I wouldn't send them anywhere else. I believe the teachers at SEES are some of the best in the state and they truly care about their students. Thank you

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.
