It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
 
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
 
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net!  
Paul Knox Middle School Philosophy

We believe all students can and must learn at relatively high levels of achievement.  We also believe academic success is most effectively achieved when students, parents, and teachers all make significant contributions in the education process. 

We believe to be successful, a student should

1) Read a minimum of 30 minutes a day at home.

2) Study a minimum of 60 minutes a day at home.

3) Always treat others with respect/dignity.

4) Attend school regularly; be prepared for class

5) Set personal high expectations and goals.


2015-2016 Student Goals

Goal 1

Our students will develop/enhance their abilities in language arts, mathematics, the sciences, the arts, the humanities, and social studies to what they will encounter throughout their lives.

Goal 2

Our students will develop, enhance, and exhibit the qualities of citizenship, courtesy, hard work, honesty, justice, patriotism, respect, responsibility, and self-discipline.

Goal 3

Our students will have the highest scores among Aiken County middle school on state tests.  Our goal is 80% met in every academic discipline in every grade level.

Goal 4

95% of our parents will be pleased with home-school relations, per spring survey.
