Pilot View Elementary offers an amazing environment for students and parents where learning is a priority and the students come first. As a parent, I would not want my kids to go anywhere else. I truly feel like my child matters and that each staff member cares, whether they are their current teacher or not. It is rare to find an environment where the teachers of all grades know practically all the students in the school. Pilot View Elementary is more than as asset to its students, it is an asset to the entire comnunity.

I have 3 kids in this school in Kindergarten, second and fifth grade. There is always up and downs with schools throughout the year but I am very impressed with the quality that all three of my children have learned each year. The teachers are great in their own way and they all want to help as soon as there might be a problem. I lived in a big city before moving to the country and the city schools are so over-crowded that they weren't getting their one on one like they are now. I have loved it since the moment that I moved there to the community and I wouldn't leave for nothing in the world. We had a very sudden death in the family and the school really came through for us in many ways and there is not a lot that will do that for you. Thanks

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.
