THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS A SMALL ONE WHICH MAKES IT A VERY CLOSE COMMUNITY. THERE IS PARENT INVOLVEMENT WITH EACH CAMPUS AND ALL SCHOOLS ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TOGETHER FOR ALL CAMPUSES TO BE INVOLVED IN WHAT EACH CAMPUS IS DOING, GIVING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH OUR ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS. ANY ACTIVITY GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE CAMPUSES GIVE THE STUDENTS THE INTERACTION THEY NEED TO BE A PART OF THE COMMUNITY, WEATHER YOUR A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT OR IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. WE ALL LOVE THE INTERACTION BETWEEN SCHOOLS WHICH GIVES US THAT FAMILY FEELING.

Paradise High School is an excellent college prep school. They emphasize academics and have quality teachers. They boast several graduates who went on to top colleges and three in my son's classes that actually were accepted and graduated from West Point! Along with that there are many trade classes, successful sports teams, music, drama and an excellent band. Why would anyone consider another school when they have PHS!
Teachers are great! The campus is clean, but in High School, all bathrooms could be cleaner. The discipline is not strict. Our UIL team is good.
