Paso High is a pretty good school, my time here has been overall enjoyable. Of course there are things to be improved, such as administrative spending, the bathrooms, the food, the arts program, etc. but I can't complain in terms of academics. The student population is about 49% white and 49% latino, and 2% other. A good amount of students don't like the school, and a good amount love it. Depends who you ask! I've attended over 6 schools in my life, and in my opinion, this is one of the best ones.

A few things that I love about this school is that the teachers actually care about the student's well-being and life, the students are generally have a much more flexible personality, and the football games are always something to look forward to. Mainly the whole school is an overall nice place to be. The only downside would be the food provided. There isn't many healthy options and the fruit cups tend to cost more than the bags of chips, and to eat a certain food, the whole meal needs to be bought which costs around three dollars and fifty cents to four dollars.
I have had many good experiences in my school, although the students have made some conditions unfavorable and vandalized/littered food and other garbage, especially in the bathrooms. This makes it harder for the custodians and everyone else who has to walk throughout the campus.
