Paramount Unified School District Reviews

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.

As a student in paramount high school I can honestly say that it is one of the best high schools in the county. The teachers are amazing and are dedicated to their job and students. All the programs are awesome, from marching band, film, dance, choir, and so many more. The campus itself is gorgeous since many renovations have been made to the school. Having a great football field where my fellow band members and I can practice. Not only does the school have great teachers and programs but the staff here is amazing.Smiling, loving lunch ladies who are very kind to all of us. Making sure they give out great healthy food to fill up the students so they can go through the school day with a happy stomach. Overall Paramount High School is a very wonderfull school that I’ll miss very much and is great the way it is.
Paramount High School was an amazing school because thanks to them I'm going to college for free. They are really helpful when it comes to college by providing a lot of help during college applications and scholarships. They want every student to go to a four year university!
