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.

Paducah Middle Speech Finishes 8th In State

Paducah Middle School's Aneeza Ali was named State Runner Up at the Kentucky High School Speech League's state speech tournament for middle school students this weekend at the University of Kentucky. Ali earned her trophy in the Prose competition category.

The Paducah Middle Speech Team placed 8th overall.

Six members of the team reached the semi-final rounds, each placing among the top 18 competitors in the state in their respective categories.

Reaching the semi-final rounds in Prose were Ali and teammate Maggie Rowton.

Ali and duo partner Alicia Durfee reached the semi-final rounds in both Duo Acting and Duo Improv. Duo partners Rowton and Erica Wurth were also among the top 18 in the state in Duo Acting.

Wurth earned her second semi-finalist designation in the Poetry category.

Nathaniel Skinner reached the top 18 in Extemporaneous Speaking, and Whitson McNeill was among the top 18 in the state in Broadcasting.

Coach Rachel Morgan said of the team's impressive performance at state, "Placing 8th overall in the state with only 7 competitors is outstanding. These students practiced and fine tuned their pieces, and they placed among the best of the best from 35 teams and hundreds of students from across the state. The Paducah Middle Speech Team is truly a state powerhouse.”
