Paola Unified School District Reviews

Paola United School District is a small yet including school district. All of the schools work together to do the best for the students. Although this school district is good, i think there needs to be more class choices in the high school.

The things I like about Paola is that the people are overall just amazing and the teaching methods the teachers have for the students are very helpful. I would like to see some of the rules change, with the dances and outside dates but that is honestly the only thing.
Paola School district has a good cirriculum. The administration is friendly. Although the school can have sports over academics at times.
