Huntertown Elementary school is a unique school nestled in the middle of a county that boasts the most beautiful horse farms that Kentucky has to offer. We are proud to have a veteran staff that views our school as their family. The family feeling permeates not only through the staff, but students, and community.

Huntertown is a Title I school where a little less than half of our students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. We have a high population of culturally and linguistically diverse students along with a high special education population. Classrooms focus on teaching students soft skills as they work in groups with their peers. The goal is for all students to be engaged in learning and not be able to hide in the classroom.

When ask what the most important thing about Huntertown was, an Ell student in fifth grade stated, "At our school we work together to learn so when I need to show my learning on my own I know I am ready." This is what we are all about; students supporting each other as a family and then being accountable for showing they have learned the content. This philosophy has served our school well as we have been a school of distinction in our state for 3 years. This is the highest academic honor bestowed on a school in our state. We continue to strive to do better daily for all student who we are blessed to work with.
