2010-11 Test Data Released - A Message from Mrs. Dailey
As many are aware, the accountability system for schools in Kentucky has changed drastically.  With the release of our testing data, Paris Middle School has some areas for celebration and some areas of concern.  We are extremely proud of our writing and language mechanics data.  Scores in these two key areas stack up well with the state average.  Math and social studies scores indicate areas for growth.  To address this key concern we have hired additional staff and purchased additional resources to aid student achievement.  Although the data provides many areas that we need to show improvement, we are confident that the next few years will see great growth.  Keep an eye on what is going on in our school - it is exciting!.  As always, I welcome any parent, student, or community member to contact me with questions concerning academic achievement.
