A Paris-ite. By a special definition, this word means: Someone who has moved from out of state or city to Paris, Texas. Bonus points if they transferred to Paris High School. By definition, I am a "Paris-ite." I'm not originally from Paris, but rather from the glittering lights of Los Angeles. You can only imagine the horror I felt when I found out I was moving from the city of stars to a one horse town. The halls were unfamiliar, and so were the faces, but little did I know that these faces, and these halls, would soon be what I call home. PHS, both the people and the school, welcomed me in with a warm and loving embrace, and never made me feel out of place. Now, I can't imagine my life any different. The teachers know how to grasp my attention and urge me to learn, and my fellow students bring me joy and laughter each and every day. I can truly say with confidence that Paris High School is one of the best learning environments I have ever been in.
My experience at Paris High School has been great due to the amazing and exuberant students and teachers. It is very easy to surround yourself with fun and caring friends at PHS and there's never a dull moment between me and my friends. The teachers at PHS are smart, funny, and understanding which only makes the high school experience even more enjoyable. The band and athletics are amazing and the campus is pleasing to be in. Paris High School has done a great job dealing with the pandemic and has made it as easy as possible for the students to keep learning.
All the diversity of people is amazing! No one is left out. Our teachers do everything they can to help us succeed including our amazing principal, Mr. Vaughn and assistant principals, Mike Henry and Sabrina Day.
