Paola High School Reviews
Paola High School may not be the biggest school of all, but it certainly is big in pride. Just by going there for my second year, I feel like I belong and everyone is respectful. Our athletics department excels in many ways and may be one of the biggest focuses. Students at Paola strive to show pride and be considerate of others. Our curriculum is changing over to more of hands on project and displaying of our knowledge on our subjects, making our studying and learning excel with great outcomes. We have many opportunities to get involved with our communities. Our school building is kept clean and well updated. There is not a day I couldn't say I was proud to be a Panther!
Paola may be a small town, but everyone knows their academics and athletics excels. Paola is a town of tradition and a town where everyone feels like home together. Everyone is really friendly and respectful. In the school we have great sports, plays, yearbook staff, debate team, leadership and community clubs and we are only getting better. High school has a lot of opportunities to get college credits and prepare you for the ACT's and help you take them. I feel well prepared for my future because of the high school. I am a proud panther. If you are looking for a cute, proud, small town, Paola is the place to be.
I enjoyed Paola high school a lot! I had some teachers that cared about not only my education but also my personal life and pushed me. Although I would love to see less favoritism in sports. Often times the success of fine arts or intellectual competitions got looked over. They made students not feel important in the areas they were passionate in.
