Paducah Independent Schools Reviews

Paducah Tilghman has an amazing AP and honors program. We offer a comprehensive double block class. This means two class are taught as one in a two hour block. This class allows students to learn English along with history. It is extremely helpful. As I was learning about Herbert Hoover and the Great Depression in history I was reading The Grapes of Wrath and along with the 20s and Robber Barons I was reading The Great Gastsby.
