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.

Paducah Public Schools a Proficient District, PTHS and Clark Distinguished on KDE School Report Card
Paducah Public Schools achieved three firsts in the Kentucky Department of Education’s Kentucky School Report Card for 2015 -16: The district was classified as “Proficient”, and Paducah Tilghman High School and Clark Elementary were classified as “Distinguished” for the first time under the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) Unbridled Learning Accountability System, which has been in place since 2011-12.
The overall score for the district was 67.4 for 2015-16, an improvement of 3.9 points over the 2014-15 score of 63.5. The score met the Annual Measureable Objective (AMO) set by the state.
“We’re pleased to see these results,” Shively said. “To have our district reach the status of “Proficient” for the first time and for PTHS and Clark to be classified as “Distinguished” validates our mission. I believe that meeting the needs of each and every child is translating into the positive results we see in these scores.”
