In state rankings, Austin-Tracy is currently 30th out of 709 elementary schools.  This places ATES in the top five percent of all elementary schools in the state.

"We are thrilled to be designated as a Distinguished School of Distinction by the Kentucky Department of Education.  With a dedicated staff, hard-working students, and supportive families, Austin-Tracy is a fantastic place to learn and grow." states Principal Brian Clifford.  "We track our students throughout the year to make sure they are making progress and intervene when needed to provide individualized attention and ensure learning success.  This student-centered approach creates a positive school culture and a real 'family' atmosphere at Austin-Tracy.  We are all so proud of our amazing students!"
