It starts with the principal. She is one of the best. Really knows how to run a school. Next...this school has GREAT teachers. Finally, it's a nice facility and kept clean. This is almost like having a private school in a public school system...it's that good.

Wilmore is a wonderful elementary! My children have excelled there. The gifted/talented program has been wonderful. And the opportunities with jump rope club/team is great. It's like a small private school in a public school setting!

My son has flourished and exceeded my ideas of what he would have accomplished so early on. Scholastically things are great, aside from that there are issues with organzation as a whole as far as registration and open house. Mrs Oreily is a great teacher and any student will be lucky to have her .

Great School! Just look at the test scores. When building our house, we only wanted to move in the Wilmore/West district. I have 3 children who attended here. The teacher's are great, the staff is like family the student body is diverse, and the parent involvement is awesome. It's like a private school....free!

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.
