Paragould School District Reviews

Paragould High School has helped me create many memories. I won't forget the amazing friends I have made or the incredible teachers that have helped me get to where I am today. Some of the teachers at Paragould are so compassionate; they make you feel as though you can do anything, and that you should set as many goals as you can. If there is anything that has stuck with me through my high school career, it is that nothing worth having comes easy. We must push ourselves to reach our prime. If I could change one characteristic about Paragould High School, it would be that all of the teachers should have the level of compassion and love as some of the others.

This school has some wonderful teachers and staff who truly care for the education and wellbeing of their students, but, just like any school, just a few employees do not share that same drive to educate the younger generation. Overall, this is not a bad school, and any deficiencies in upkeep or technology can easily be fixed with adjustments in funding whether from the government or private donations.
I was in the Paragould School District from kindergarten to high school graduation. I truly enjoyed my time there and believe that it is a great school. I had several fantastic teachers, had AP/College course opportunities, and learned valuable material. Paragould School District has its flaws, but overall it was a very good place to be. I recommend this district.
