I have had a great high school experience. The class options are outstanding, Paoli Junior Senior High School has a great variety of duel credit and AP classes, many of which I am enrolled in. Our teachers are always prepared to help the students find what is best for them, despite some bullying in sport related things, it is a great environment!

It's a part of a small town so everyone will be familiar with everyone. The grade size is about 90-120 people. The school is decently-funded, both academically and sports-wise; however, the school has recently suffered from decreased funding due to decreased enrollment.

The diversity at the school is poor and most of the school is white and conservative. The student body is typically low-to-middle class with most of the students being poorer than average.

The teachers are, for the most part, nice and do care about your success. However, that's primarily if you try and don't doze off in school. The opportunities are adequate but house a limited selection of AP courses. Most college-bound students choose to attend a public university.
I felt like it was so incredibly strict. You had one rip in your jeans or your shirt cut out at the shoulders, you got called into the office and got in trouble for it. While other students would be actually fighting in the cafeteria and maybe get suspended one day for it. The lunches were also terrible. I knew a lot of people who would rather go hungry than eat the lunch that the school provided them. Before they took away the vending machines, that's how most of the students ate if they did not pack their lunches. And not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to pack their lunches everyday. For the most part the teachers were great, but the rules that were made were far from it. It got to the point that we couldn't yell cheers at the other team while playing against them no matter what they said to us. Because we had to have "good sportsmanship". And I've been told it has only gone downhill since I graduated. So I am glad I graduated when I did.
