Paramount Unified School District Reviews

I really enjoy being a Paramount High School Student. My family used to attend the school as well. I can say that there are many teachers who have pushed me to do my best. I believe they have given me the tips I need to be successful in life. Also, the school shows they care about where students are going after college. They give advice that is very useful and important to know. However, there are some issues with some teachers who do not explain enough or push the students to do their best. Overall, the school is very focused on helping students thrive and organized in doing so.

At my high school, They are very open to any kind of students. They are supportive like in tutoring for classes and for when the SAT test comes by. They also offer workshops for when seniors apply to colleges, scholarships, and for financial aid. They help and answer any question with financial aid and help consider colleges that they believe will be good to apply to. They also have lots of clubs for anything like drama club, and CRU l, a Christian club. They like to have field trips for students who want to go to college fairs or visit any schools for example USC.
My school has a great team of sports enthusiasts, consisting of students, teachers, coaches, and parents. The comraderie is infectious and has had the greatest impact on the performance of all involved. I think everyone should know about Paramount High School sports program and the outstanding job the coaches do of leading the teams of athletes. The School's campus track is virtually new and an excellent venue for track meets and other sports. The teams work together to keep the campus unblemished. The sports program has inspired the youth in their development to strive for better and to remember sportmanship. Improvement would be to encourage more youth to join the sports program at the school, which enhances development overall.
