This was a wonderful school. It is a shame that it is closing for good. The staff was great. They always remembered me and kept me up to date on anything concerning my daughter. Schools won't do that anymore.

My daughter went to Trapp K-5. We moved to Florida half way through her 5th grade year. We felt like part of a family there. It's been 2 years since we were there, but we still call and say "hi, how ya doin'?". My daughter was way beyond her peers in Florida (academically). I know she got the best education at Trapp compared to other schools in the state. I would recommend this school to anyone moving in their area. My daughter is now in 7th grade and still a straight A student, even with 2 advanced classes. Her academic foundation came from Trapp Elementary. She learned her basics, study habits, acceptable behavior, and importance of education at Trapp. She received several awards at Trapp and is continuing that here in Florida. I was afraid when we moved that she would get swallowed up in a big school (600 students), but she didn't. She learned so much more than I ever imagined. She adapted so well to her new school and has succeeded far beyond expectations as a student and citizen. I couldn't be more proud of my daughter, and it's because of the interaction between school and home at Trapp Elementary. There is no limit to what my daughter can do and will do in life.

Trapp is a small community school that shares its principal with another elementary school. Although test scores have remained high for the school in comparison to the district and state, it is really hard to gauge how the children compare and whether or not the information they are learning is going to help them in the long run or if it is strictly geared towards making sure they score well on standardized tests. Opportunities for parent involvement at Trapp are generally geared towards parents that do not work outside of the home. Activity schedules have not done a good job of accommodating working parents. The current principal at Trapp provides a lot of lip-service to parents and community members and then works to advance his own objectives regardless of how the parents feel.

Trapp Elementary is 'The Best' elementary school in Clark Co. They consistently rank in the top schools in Ky and are #1 in several academic areas in Clark County and is a distinguished Title 1 school. This rural school has wonderful teachers with many years of service.

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.
