On Sept. 11, 1865, the Paris City School opened its doors for the first time in what was formerly known as the Bourbon Academy.
Since 1897, the year the first class of students graduated, almost 6,000 students have received their diplomas from the Paris school system. And since 1918, just nine superintendents have overseen the district.
To mark the district’s anniversary, the Hopewell Museum is featuring a special exhibit called, “Paris Schools: 150 Years of Academic Excellence.” The display, which features a wide assortment of school memorabilia, will be on display through Oct. 11.
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) publishes Kentucky Teacher to communicate directly with the state’s 40,000 public school teachers. The stories of this award-winning publication include news, perspectives, and practical, workable ideas for guiding students to higher levels of achievement.
