I attended from 7th to 8th, i repeated the 8th grade because they didn't have summer school, academically they don't really have all the funds to do so because of the basketball team, when I went if you didn't play you didn't matter, when I turned 16 i went to Walton Vo-Tech now that school excels in teaching and preparing for higher learning . I am now a parent of a soon to be kindergartener and im sending her to W.S. Harlan. in Lockhart they rank at 9

I Love this school. My son has struggled in math for the last 3 years and the teachers have gone above and beyond to help him and make sure that he knows and understands what he is doing. I have had one child graduate from Paxton and currently have 3 enrolled. I would never change my kids from here. I have been totally impressed with the teachers and other staff in Paxton school. Thanks to all the teachers and admin staff for all that you do!!! You are very appreciated!!!

I am a student of Paxton High School, soon to be graduate, and I couldn't imagine going to school anywhere else. Our school is so small and connected. Yes, our school has its bad days, but most days are easy laid back days. Our teachers and staff members are like our older brother & sisters when we need someone to truly talk to. When I leave here, I'll always know I have my Alumni behind me 100% of the way.

As a parent of 2 boys, one middle school and one high school, I have been more than pleased with Paxton School overall. The teachers are helpful, the staff is helpful, and the environment is pleasant. The smaller school atmosphere has been a blessing for both of my sons.

I am a former student of Paxton High School. The school prepares students for the next level of their education. The school takes pride in both its athletic programs and academic programs. I feel the quality of education there is far better than the alternative area schools.

The level of academmics is very high at Paxton. The students love it there and the teachers are very attentive to the students needs. For there being 4 students per teacher, the requirements are reached and skills are mastered by the students. I am very proud to be a parent of a student at Paxton High. All children are very respectful and are very well behaved, simply because of the great staff.

I think the school does not academically prepare students. They do not have the basic fundamentals to teach the students to pass the fcat. The school has been rated as a 'c' school. As far as the Paxton High School faculty are concerned academics come second to athletics.

I am a former student of PHS. While I was there I enjoyed it and thought I was learning a lot, until I went on to college. Paxton did not prepare me well, because they did not offer high math courses and programs like other larger schools can offer. The worst part about Paxton is that it seems they let students fall between the cracks. If you aren't a student who really pushes yourself they wont help you do it. I am very successful in my career today, but I don't give this school the credit for it. I had to work hard to get it in college.

I really enjoy going to school at Paxton. I had been homeschooled for 5 years before I attended Paxton. I didn't know anyone when I enrolled there. With in a few hours I knew everyone in my 10th grade class. (there are only 35) And now I have a best friend, and a whole basketball team of friends. This school is just a little country school where everybody just wants to be your friend.

i am a former student at paxton high school they have wonderful class there but most of all the Ag program is the best. If it wasn't for Odon Russell there wouldn't be an Ag program. There are a bunch of students that like helping him drive the tractor and taking care of the hogs. they will learn from this experience.

I'm not a parent, but a former student. I attended from first til graduation. I believe this school is exceptional in many ways. Many programs were great while I was going to school there. Home economics, Agriculture, Vo-Tech, and clubs as such as Youth for Christ all extroadanary programs and teachers that taught them.My issue was some teachers payed special attention only to those students that were active in sports and had parent involvement in there education making these children the so called preps. Now there was other teachers that showed interest in the less fortunate of children like my brothers and I. I do realize that this takes place in schools all over the country. For me this has had an impact on me. I beleive I could of accomplished more in my life if only I would have been pushed harder by my parents and teachers. I took for granted the time I had in school and wish only I could go back and payed more attention. In my graduating class out of some popular girls there were two with child at graduation and one pregnant with child at graduation. This girl was our Valivictorian.
