I loved my time at Paradise High School. I met life-long friends and created memorable relationships with both classmates and teachers. I liked most of all my teachers and the students. Being a small school, mostly everyone knows each other and that makes a perfect environment to make amazing friendships. Some things that could use some improvement are the bathrooms, the gym and classroom resources. Although problems will probably be fixed as extra funding because of the fire.

My experience at Paradise Senior High has been very phenomenal! Many of the teachers personally pay for students who cannot buy their own school supplies. I have been treated with the utmost respect from most of the facility members. Sometime I would like to see change is the new rule on the Sierra Nevada sweatshirts. It used to be against the rules for students to wear them, which I agree with because we are not of the legal drinking age, so why would we be aloud to advertise their alcohol? Now, you are aloud to wear their merchandise which I would like to have changed back to not allowed to wear them.
I have enjoyed Paradise High School extremely much, teachers, administrators, and even students have always been kind and helpful at all times. School can seem stressful and difficult at times but teachers are always open to help at any times of the school day. I have never had a negative experience at this school.
