For Van Buren County, this is one of the better schools. Having said that, they have some of the issues that the other county schools do: generational families who use the district as custodial, and apathy to any work or achievement beyond the state-required grade level. If your child is above grade level, they will most likely not be challenged, and will be mostly ignored academically as the majority of students struggle to make their state mandated achievement levels. The administration changed this past year, and has worked towards better procedures, but they are not even close to addressing the gap between the majority of students at or below level and the small minority above. They did not address these issues on a school wide level, and continue to teach to the middle. I am driving my children to Kalamazoo County next year.

I love Paw Paw Public School in general for their overall excellence in education and the coordination of learning that encourages the parents, teacher as well as the student to come together in all aspects to help any child succeed. My daughther is in at this point at Paw Paw Early Elementary School and I have been very pleased with the experience of the staff as well as the education she has been receiving and will honestly say I would not want her to go anywhere else. We are a small town school with an excellent record of educational values as well as ratings just or even higher then your bigger schools and so called better schools. Everyone is friendly and very easy to work as well as offers a very safe environment in every area to assure my child is safe and most of all she loves it and actually loves to go to school. Small Tough with an awesome education source.
