What is UIL?   The program of academic competition for elementary, middle school and junior high officially became "A+ Academics" in 2008. A+ Academics includes 20 different events for grades 2-8. These events span the curriculum - they are designed to complement and expand upon what students learn in the classroom, both through learning specific subject knowledge, and through learning skills that are valuable in many disciplines. Approximately 3,000 Texas schools participate in A+ Academics, competing in more than 300 district meets each year. 

Crockett joins Paris Junior High to compete with middle schools in our region. Student gets points for “placing” in events. PJH and Crockett points are merged for a team total. ParisISD placed 1st in team competition last year. Students will practice after school with coaches for their event. Competition will be 2 days in November.
