Paducah Middle

A Tradition of Excellence

Since it opened in 1980, Paducah Middle School has united students in the "Tornado" spirit -- in classroom and extracurricular activities.

To ease the transition from elementary school, sixth-graders are grouped in teams with fewer teachers and class changes. Seventh and eighth grades are also organized by teams for more flexibility in program planning of cross-curricular activities.

We offer a variety of pre-AP services for gifted students. They include honors classes, the Duke Talent Identification Program and extracurricular Governor's Cup, Math Counts and Odyssey of the Mind academic competitions.

Four "Encore" classes are offered on a nine-week rotation: art, physical education, technology and music.

KY Safe Schools 2019

Kentucky Safe Schools Week is October 20-26

Kentucky Safe Schools Week is set for October 20–26, 2019. This year's theme is “Our Safety Story!”  Paducah Public Schools and the Kentucky Center for School Safety stands on the belief that everybody should enjoy school equally and be treated with respect. Community members, educators, students and parents are encouraged to get involved during Kentucky Safe Schools Week. 

Every school has its own cast of characters weaving the fabric of its own Safety Story. Our schools are composed of students and staff who are a host of likely characters with a variety of interests and talents. We ask that you join us across Kentucky, each and every school, as we embrace unity, kindness and empathy to enhance “Our Safety Story”.

By taking the pledge we are embracing unity, kindness and empathy to enhance “Our Safety Story” and creating a feeling of community and friendship throughout Kentucky’s schools.
To keep Kentucky schools safe places in which to learn and work, I pledge to be:
Strong enough to show empathy for others who need help at school.
Awesome, as I strive to use tolerance to create unity at school.
Friendly, showing kindness to others of all ages.
Encouraging, promoting a feeling of community and friendship throughout my school.
Let us know that you took the pledge at

Franklin Extra Yard Award

Franklin Receives "Extra Yard in the Classroom" Award

Paducah Middle teacher Tim Franklin received recognition from Murray State University as a teacher who goes the "Extra Yard in the Classroom"! For his recognition, Mr. Franklin was allowed to participate in the coin flip at the football game on Saturday, September 21.
Here's what the student who nominated Mr. Franklin said about him:
"Mr. Franklin goes the extra mile to engage students with their community. He teaches his students to identify a real world problem and then uses project based learning to arrive at a solution. Students are engaged in authentic learning that affects their world.

For example, his students in his project based learning class have identified a need for planter boxes for the preschool students. He can be found in his community on Saturdays looking for scrap materials to utilize with his students' projects. The students learn how to use tools such as drills, nail guns, etc. as he uses math and science concepts to guide his students to build the planter boxes for the preschool classes.

He makes learning relevant for his students. His students love his class."
