Paradise Honors High School is a great school. As a student, I enjoy the school culture and friendly environment that makes the student body one big family. The students can tell our staff love their jobs. However, the school lacks diversity, there is hardly any variety of classes to choose from (lack of Dual Enrollment classes, only two languages to choose from, lack of AP/IB options, lack of electives), and sports are very low level (2A), especially for prospective student athletes. Overall, the school environment encourages students to work hard and provides them with the tools they need to succeed after high school.

I think Paradise Honors High School is a super great school! It's my first year here and everybody is super nice. There's a few teachers that are a little uncoordinated at points, but for the most part, they're super great and care about your education. If you give back the same effort as they put into their lesson, they're open to tutoring and things to help you.
Paradei Honors High School is a small school that allows a person to become someone. In many other high schools you get washed-out by all the other people there, and no one ever pays attention to you. At PHHS I always had a faculty member thinking of me, leading me in the right direction. The counseling department was great in terms of directing me towards college!
