Happy Thanksgiving from Aledo ISD

At this time of Thanksgiving, we would like to share our gratitude for our staff, teachers, parents and community who give so much of their time, hearts and love to our Bearcats. Because of your support, we continue to offer all of our students - whether they are learning remotely or in person - exceptional learning experiences even during a school year like we've never experienced before.

We are thankful for your support as we are #growinggreatness in the Aledo ISD community. Happy Thanksgiving, and we hope you have a restful, enjoyable week.

Twelve Aledo Middle School students have been recognized as Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) scholars for outstanding achievement and exceptional scores on the SAT or ACT.

These 12 students took the SAT or ACT - the same test taken by college-bound high school students - in seventh grade and scored among the top students in the country, with 11 students earning State Recognition and one AMS student earning Grand Recognition.

“Earning Duke TIP scholar status is an amazing academic achievement for our students,” Aledo ISD Superintendent Dr. Susan Bohn said. “Congratulations to our students and their parents and teachers who provide exceptional learning experiences daily. We are so proud of them, and we can’t wait to see continued greatness from these students.”
