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.

PPS Spring Semester Begins January 4 with In-Person Instruction Beginning January 11

Dear PPS parents and students,

We are looking forward to welcoming our students back for in-person instruction. However, since McCracken County continues to be a “red county” based on its COVID-19 incidence rate, our district will have to use the most restrictive schedule to comply with the state “Healthy at Schools” plan and the recommendations in Governor Beshear’s executive order issued on December 18. 

Paducah Public Schools will begin our spring semester on Monday, January 4, 2021.
