Sara Paxton - Early Life and Education

Early Life and Education

Paxton, an only child, was born in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, to what she has described as "a very mixed family". Her father, Steve, is of English, Irish, and Scottish descent, and is distantly related to actor Bill Paxton. Her mother, Lucia, was born in Monterrey, Mexico and raised in Ciudad Acuña. Paxton's mother is Jewish and Paxton's father converted to Judaism upon marrying her mother. Both her parents are dentists.

During her childhood, Paxton put on shows and wanted to perform, sometimes dressing up in costume and coming to school as a particular character. She grew up in the San Fernando Valley, choosing to attend a public high school instead of accepting home-schooling. Paxton graduated from high school in May 2006.

Famous quotes containing the words education, early and/or life:

    A good education ought to help people to become both more receptive to and more discriminating about the world: seeing, feeling, and understanding more, yet sorting the pertinent from the irrelevant with an ever finer touch, increasingly able to integrate what they see and to make meaning of it in ways that enhance their ability to go on growing.
    Laurent A. Daloz (20th century)

    Names on a list, whose faces I do not recall
    But they are gone to early death, who late in school
    Distinguished the belt feed lever from the belt holding pawl.
    Richard Eberhart (b. 1904)

    The melancholy of having to count souls
    Where they grow fewer and fewer every year
    Is extreme where they shrink to none at all.
    It must be I want life to go on living.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
