Paulding High School Reviews

The teachers are really great. They take the time tot each you and are usually concerned if you don't understand. The discipline system needs some work. The popular kids get away with whatever they want, when as soon as a kid who isn't popular tries to do something that a popular kid would do, they are immediately yelled at. We have these things called houses where the whole high school is divided into 4 houses and you compete to see who has the most points. If your house has the most points at the end of the 9 weeks or at the end of the year, you get a reward. Now the rewards are great, but the meetings and competitions are no fun.

Paulding is a pretty average school for an agriculture based community. Most of the students are white and Christian. There are some pretty good teachers, but they balance out the not so great teachers. We are good at the sports that nobody cares about and bad at the sports everyone goes to.
I would to see some of the admission people changed. The food is not very good. I would also like to have some teachers that would actually teach instead of using a computer program to teach. I also don't like the house competitions and the meeting that we have in AAA that time that we have in AAA is supposed to be used for getting help with the teachers but instead we are using this time to have a meeting about some dumb house competition that we are having for that month.
