I went to High School here and noticed that there are many things they could work on. With this school being in the middle of a cow pasture it is a weird dynamic of people that attend school there. Mainly middle class white kids that do not have much experience with people of different cultures, religions, colors, or sexuality. This school has been known for bullying, though I did not experience this myself I feel like both the students and faculty need to work on being more open and accepting of all people.

The English Department is amazing! I really enjoyed my teachers. There are some amazing math and science teachers but needs more work. Clubs and Sports were really good! I was very involved in High School and enjoyed lacrosse, cross country, FCA, BETA, and HOSA.

This is my second year here and so far my experience has been great! I really enjoy learning and this school pushed me to work hard and to not give up. Teachers here actually care about your grade and they help you strive for greatness. This one teacher Mr........ is a history teacher and whenever i'm not feeling well or if i just need someone to talk to about my day, he is always there to help me. I enjoy the school lunch varieties. The only flaw at this school is that its really crowded. The reason why this school was built because it was crowded in Pauling county. Students bump into each other and it takes more than 5 minutes for everyone to be in class. I believe that the broad of education needs to create a new school to make room for students.
North Paulding High School has a unique culture. Although, the school does not share in diversity as other school do, the students work hard to create a diverse atmosphere. As on the of African American students in the school I try and foster togetherness and a welcoming atmosphere especially for the new incoming students. When I first started the school it was 95 percent Caucasian, 3 percent African American and 2 percent Hispanic. During the four years, I have seen an Hispanic principal, and a larger population of Asian and Indian students. North Paulding High School is located in the suburbs of Atlanta and is trying to make the atmosphere more diverse and appealing to all nations of people, creed and religion.
