The Paideia School

Basketball - Varsity Girls'


  • Monique Dawson


During the past 22 years we have built an outstanding girls basketball program. It has been our goal to establish a tradition of excellence in girls’ basketball at Paideia allowing us to compete annually on a level with the best teams in Georgia regardless of size or classification. To maintain this tradition and respect we’ve worked so hard to establish requires dedication and commitment on the part of coaches, players, and parents. Our annual goals are becoming the best players and team we can be, giving maximum effort at all times, winning 20 games or more each season, finishing first in the region, and winning the State Tournament.
