Paradise Unified School District Reviews

After the wildfire that struck our community, our school district kept it together and was able to make the rest of the year successful for students. I think that something that could change is communication. I think that the way the district communicates is not very effective and not many people are able to hear about schedule changes or upcoming events.

The teachers are amazing, the curriculum (while Common Core based) is phenomenal (with the exception of the math classes).
The school is a great school. The curriculums and teachers are really well organized, and teach you what you need to know in an easy and quick way. The schools staff and representatives do a lot for the district, and really listen to the students and faculty. Could be a little more diverse, and the food could be better. The school is too easy to open, and it is easy for the underclass to get passed to the yard duties and other faculty members.
