There is too much bullying, fights and drug use there. Teachers will watch other kids get bullied. Kids with IEP’s are at a loss in Paulding County. Teachers do not follow IEP’s then your child fails the classes and fails the grade. Worse school district ever! They do not care about the kids

The teachers and faculty are extremely invested in the lives of their students and they are the student's biggest advocates. North Paulding High School is dedicated to making all students feel welcome, and they do this by offering clubs and activities that fit all different personalities and interests. The school is constantly preparing you for your future, while providing a safe learning environment for all students. I am thankful that for the opportunities I have had as a student at North Paulding High School.
I liked my Pauling County schools just because its where i meet my best friend in the world and I got to be apart of marching band. I also like some of my teachers. They really knew how to connect with students and still give me a wonderful education. I would change a lot about the school I attended, one thing being the school food. i would also want to change the atmosphere in the school. Every one seems so distant from each other. There is no sense of a family vibe . It is there but its in groups of people not the school as a unity. I know that this is high school so this is something very hard to achieve, but still it would be nice. People would probably like coming more. Besides all that my experience at Pauling county schools was pretty good
