Paris Independent School District was a great place to attend school! I received a quality education and formed relationships with the friends, faculty, and staff that truly changed my life for the better. I participated in numerous clubs, performed in the school plays, and took numerous AP and dual credit courses. I came to college totally prepared and I feel that it is all thanks to the education I received in my formative years at PISD.

I was involved in all the arts programs and I’m very great full for my time here but it was some of the most horrible years of my life. The people here are very toxic even some of the teachers. But the moment you go to someone higher up and tell them your dilemma, you’re in the wrong because you’re younger. I continuously got bullied and I tried getting help but I was only told, “Maybe you should talk it out.” Well that didn’t work. Also some people aren’t made for core classes. That needs to change. I struggled so much in core classes but did amazing in the arts. You want “well rounded students” but what you want are kids that can me Chemists and Athletes. There needs to be some serious changes to this school.
Paris ISD is an amazing and well recommended school district for all students yearning to learn in a friendly, welcoming environment. The faculties and teachers that I have come to meet are so motivated and determined to get each student the proper education he or she needs. They work hard in making new goals each day and reaching these goals throughout the school years. I am honored to have been a part of this wonderful school district and have felt like an over-achiever each day until the day of my graduation. If they continue to fight hard, put in effort, and strive for greatness each day as they have done from the start, we will move mountains. PISD is already known for many of their students to have accomplished so much in education as well as outside the school walls. Not only does this district create warriors, but they have also created leaders who help others rise.
