Bad. School counselor didn't email my parent back for weeks when told I was having problems and stressed. Then more administration was contacted to no avail other than to accuse my parents of not contacting the right people. And they tried to use excuses saying they didn't get phone messages. Well the school counselor got the emails and didn't respond.

This school does not live up to the reputation that it has. It is average, at best. The chemistry class my child took didn't perform any labs, how is that even possible!?! Labs are what support the theory being taught. Biology focused more on plants than anything else. That is botany not biology.The main benefit of this school is that it is relatively safe for my child.

Paxon's offers great courses, looks great on college applications, and is very diverse. If you or your child want this, definitely go here. But be prepared to have the life sucked out of you. The courses are lovely - APs, IB, decent electives. But you won't learn hardly anything. At Paxon, you cram information into your head to pass exams, and that's it. Most of the teachers don't care about you- or the information they teach. They want you to pass the exams. They don't want you to learn - they want you to memorize. This seems worth it if you want to look good. But beware- your grades are probably going to drop. Low. You'll be an average, C-student, in a good-looking school. And yes, Paxon is VERY diverse. The guy next to you is from Africa and the teacher is probably from Cambodia or something. But these people always split up into harsh cliques. Want to sit next to that IB Asian kid in the cafeteria? Too bad. You're black and in AP. You can't be friends. Sorry. Most of the people at Paxon are obnoxious rich people anyway. Not very enjoyable. Prepare to be bullied too- that's normal. Paxon's also great if you want to get hit by a bus. Come visit the loading zone- you'll see.

I am currently a senior in the AP program at Paxon and I love it! It can be challenging at times but the hard work is worth it. I've known students who started college in their Sophomore or Junior year by passing the AP exams thanks to their hard work and our amazing teachers. Paxon isn't perfect, but neither is any other school. We have a few questionable teachers and our share of bad students but you won't find a school that doesn't. If you want to get a quality education that will prepare you for college while having fun at the same time you should choose Paxon. Some people think it's all academics 24/7 and studying ever night until midnight. I've never had to stay up late for homework unless it was my fault for waiting until the last minute. From pep rallies to football games to homecoming week and not to mention numerous clubs, Paxon has it all. It's the perfect balance between work and fun and I can honestly say it's been the best 4 years of my life. Most of the students at Paxon are very open minded and welcoming. I've hardly come across someone bullying or teasing others. Our student body is VERY diverse, which is one of the many, many reasons it's such an amazing school :)

This school have proven to be one of the best schools in Duval County. My grand daughter and grand-son enjoy the learning environment at Paxon. My kids are prepared to looking forward to the future, knowing that their education at this school (Paxon-School-Advance-Studies) has prepared them for any situation that any College or University may employ (Math. Science, History, etc.). We appreciate the on-going instruction and direction from concern teachers and staff members. The home work and extra work assignments contribute to the success of this school.
