Grayson County Middle School has placed among the top 30% of middle schools in the state of Kentucky, making it a Best Middle School in the recent U.S. News & World Report Rankings. This was the publication’s first-ever ranking of public middle schools.

Schools were assessed on their share of students who were proficient or above in mathematics and reading/language arts state assessments. Half the formula was the results themselves; the other half was the results in the context of socioeconomic demographics. In other words, the top-ranked schools are all high achieving and are succeeding in educating all their students.
