    "Paxon has a lot of potential. Academics, especially the IB program, has proved healthily competitive and productive. However, after school activities, especially in STEM, has been difficult to maintain or start up. There is more of a sports and school spirit than an academic spirit, which makes it hard for Paxon to compete in areas such as Mu Alpha Theta, Science Olympiad, or FIRST robotics, all which are being revived at the moment. Other STEM-related clubs have also suffered their own pitfalls. If it was not for a select few of my peers, these clubs would have died out. Resources are also starting to dwindle, such as the loss of our librarian, due to recent politics and Duval county's status in general.Regardless, Paxon has a chance to rise up to the challenge, especially against their long time rivals Stanton, given the culture changes."

    "Paxon school for advanced studies is a school that is very diverse. They treat everyone differently. If you are not cool with a teacher don't expect them to help you."

    "Paxon really helps to prepare students for the work load and strictness that comes with college. Chosing this high school over my neighborhood school had a large impact on my life. I feel as if I am more ready for college and will start out ahead of the game. Not only did I develop amazing study habits, but I also learned about dressing professionally, as well as acting professionally. Overall it is an amazing school. The only downsides to Paxon are that some of the teachers are not the best;however, this is to be expected at any school. Another aspect that could improve is the cafeteria food, as to be expected in high school, the cafeteria food could be better. Academics were the main focus compared to other high schools where sports are much more popular, so our teams were not the greatest but academics are more important and the classes at paxon are better than those found at most other high schools."

    "Paxon School for Advanced Studies is a great environment to learn and grow into an all-around student. The teachers there truly push you and help you understand the concept of time management. Paxon gives you the opportunity to create your own club and the student population is truly diverse. One thing I would change is how strict Paxon is. From dress code, to pep rallies, our "fun meter" can be considered low to others. In my opinion, I have enjoyed my experience here."
