Paintsville High School is a wonderful place to learn and grow as a student! I am so thankful for the way the staff has prepared me for my college education, and further more how they have supported me in my journey to find the right college for me. The inclusiveness of a small school cannot be matched. I believe if you asked anyone who has been involved with the Paintsville School System they would feel the same!

My overall experience with Paintsville Independent Schools, is great. There are good and bad things about my schools, but whose schools doesn't have good and bad qualities. If I could change anything about my school, it would be the amount of school spirit we have. The momentum is there but no one wants to go all out and support our academic and athletic programs and that is what I would like to see change.
I have loved my 6 year experience at Paintsville High School. I believe that the teachers and faculty are very involved with every student and never let anyone go unheard. The classes are challenging, which causes every student to be better prepared for life after high school. The change I would like to see is to have more electives and classes offered for upcoming student's interests.
