Welcome to Paris Middle School!

"Success ~ One By One" 

The Paris Middle School SBDM Council Principal Selection Committee is excited to announce Mrs. Stephanie Harmon as the new principal of Paris Middle School.  She will join Paris Independent Schools on July 1, 2019.   Ms. Harmon shares,  "I am excited and proud to take on the role of Principal at Paris Middle School.  Currently, I am the Assistant Principal and Professional Growth and Effectiveness Coach at Glendover Elementary school in Fayette County and have served in this position since the summer of 2017.  Prior to that, I worked as a District Multi-Tiered System of Supports Coach for Middle Schools and High Schools in Fayette County with a primary focus on Response to Intervention.   Before working in Fayette County, I proudly served as the Academic Dean at Garth Elementary School for 4 years and as a Special Education Teacher and Team Leader at Georgetown Middle School for 7 years.  In the Spring of 2012, I was named the Special Education Teacher of the Year for Scott County Schools". She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky in Health Education with a minor in Family Studies.  She then received a Master’s Degree in Education from Georgetown College in Learning and Behavior Disorders and a Master’s Degree in Instructional Leadership from Eastern Kentucky University.  Ms. Harmon currently resides in Scott County with her husband Brandon and two daughters Kennedy and Savannah.   We are thrilled to welcome Stephanie to our Paris family and anxious for everyone to meet her.  Her experience, expertise, and enthusiasm will propel Paris Middle School students into the future prepared for high school and beyond.
