My experience at Paseo has been wonderful, I have been their since my 7th grade year. It’s a very good diverse school, we have a lot of talented students and some of the best and care teachers. The things I would like to see change is lunch and I feel like Paseo should be a school where students can be there selves. I feel like junior and senior should’ve more to time to prep for the ACT, and all Paseo do is worry about our dress code! Sometimes the students feel like the facilities cares about the dress code more than they care about our education

My experience at Paseo was a wild one! There were years that encouraged me to become a better artist and there were some that discouraged me pursuing my dream. Even with the small change of faulty, which cause mayhem for one whole year, I managed to fly by with my major classes successfully
The teachers at Paseo Highschool don't feel like teachers to us. They're like family! These teachers show up everyday unless there's a family crisis. They're always there for help whether it's for school or something is going on in our personal life. They make sure we understand the material and they teach clearly. I'm unaware of all the teachers behaviors but the teachers I had the pleasure of having we're awesome. I had a different relationship with each one. One in particular was Ms.Gina Mercer. My favorite teacher throughout my whole life. She's my second mom and I still contact her while I'm currently in college. I love her like my own mother and I'm truly blessed to have such a motivational, loving, smart, intelligent, and talented teacher. Paseo isn't a school , it's a family.
