We are pulling our daughter out of this "school". I am very unhappy with the teachers, the curriculum and the atmosphere. My daughter is not learning and the teachers do not care. The administration is nonexistent.

The teachers here are SO dedicated & focused on the success of every student. Note that the curriculum here is very advanced, and your child will be working a grade ahead. Not just theoretically, but actually. For example, if they are in 4th grade, their textbooks will ALL be 5th grade books. They have 2 math classes a day (Saxon math and the Common Core state requirement). Every classroom has their core subjects at the same time, so for example if your child is great at math, he or she can go to math with the teacher the next grade up. I love that they will adapt to your child's abilities, and that means they don't have to 'teach to the middle' because everyone is placed where they need to be in every subject. AND free weekly tutoring is offered to anyone struggling in a subject. Assessments are done quarterly so progress can be tracked and tweaked. The uniforms are great bc the kids are focused on academics and not on name brand fashion wars, cliques, or who has money and who doesn't. Everyone we've met so far has been academically focused, just like the school. (Though they do have extracurricular activities like a few sports, plus drama, music, a robotics club,etc).

I have two children in this school. This is our 4th year. Like every school, Paragon has its areas that need to be refined and tweaked and that is the case with any establishment that seeks to improve itself every year. But when the kids want to go to school, you know you have found a good place. My daughter has to be forced to stay home when she is sick. Neither one of my kids have issues or complaints that would make me want to withdraw my students. I had a Paragon teacher do a home visit this year! That says a lot when a teacher comes to my home on a weekend to inquire about my daughter and to meet me on my turf. I have not seen that happen elsewhere, and I am an educator. I have had a lot of family changes last couple of years and the school leadership and teachers have helped me and my kids when needed. The math is far higher than most schools, and I really appreciate the diversity of the community. Mr. Salem, the principal always responds to my emails and never closes the door on communication. I recommend this school!

we moved from california in the middle of the school year and i enrolled my daughter in first grade2012-2013 have never regretted since. this current year both my son and daughter are going to PSA ,THE TEACHERS are very kind, motivating, understanding and are always ready to work with the kids to help them achieve and strive for higher standards. I also volunteer so i also had the opportunity to work with the office staff, they are very friendly and accommodating no matter how many times i disturb the front office with questions they have always helped and answered all my queries patiently. My kids love going to school and i would always recommend PSA over any other school in chandler.

As a parent volunteer for two years, I ca attest how good this school is. The teachers are competent, patient with the students, hardworking and a "mother in school". You can entrust your children to them. The principal and the rest of the administration are very open to suggestions are always there to assist both parents and students. They adjust the lessons depending on the children's capabilities and skills. Fast learners will not be bored. Special tutoring classes are given to those who have difficulties. The clubs are good samples of extra curricular activities for the children. I just hope they will have more clubs in sport (basketball, baseball,etc) and music(band).

My child has been with this school since kindergarten and every year she has grown academically. She is currently in the second grade and her teacher is top notch. I would recommend this school to anyone. The curriculum is excellent. My child has excelled in most academic areas for the past three years.

The school used to have a lot of pluses such as quality and caring teachers K-1st only, and in addition high scores for AIMS. However, since the beginning of this school year 2013-2014--things has gotten out of hand with their 2nd grade team. Parents are not allowed to visit and watch the class to determine if the school is still the right fit for the child. Teachers refused to schedule a meeting when needs arises. They only allowed meetings during conferences. The relationship between parents and teachers are limited to emails and newsletter. They don't have an open door policy where parents feel welcome. This year has been a struggle with homework. It seems like mastery is no longer important, they just go off a checklist, and leave everything to parents to re-teach concepts that has not been mastered. Most of the activities within the class are worksheets based. Students often get left out in Social Studies and Science if they were behind finishing the worksheets prior. It makes me sad to have my child experience this. Hence, the review. I hope they this before it is too late. It is sad the way 2nd grade team are...

My daughter has attended Paragon since Kindergarten and loves it. I love it as a parent as well. We moved out of state for a year for my job. During that time she attended public school.

My child is still attending this school unfortunately. I find his classroom out of control and overlooked. The office staff is consistently rude and I always feel as I have intruded on them if I need something from them. I am currently looking into new schools and am completely disappointed with the choice I made in this school which is unfortunate because I had very high hopes when he started. If you want a compassionate environment as well as good academics DO NOT look here.

I have two kids at Paragon Science Academy Elementary. They absolutely love the school. I am an educator myself. I choose my kids' schools very carefully. My older child is in the gifted program. Paragon Elementary is a safe school, staff members are very caring and they listen to your concerns, they are accessible, both teachers and administration take their jobs seriously, they use technology in the classroom, the school is clean whenever you visit, teachers and administration communicate with parents on a regular basis. Overall we are very satisfied and highly recommend Paragon Elementary to anyone who want quality education for their children.

I am a parent of a gifted kid in Paragon doing advanced math. The attitude of some of the teachers at Paragon is to bring regressive teaching philosophy in modern classrooms. For example, teachers are cutting substantial marks because a kid did not have a black pen or a blue pen to grade his own paper. Even though the kid has done all problems correctly and submitted timely, the teacher refuses to share the class supplies with him and deducts 30-40% to his marks. This is outrageous and perhaps even illegal!! This is after we donated tons of school supplies to the class at the beginning of the school year. Where are the supplies going? Whose responsiility is it to grade an 8 year old's work? The teacher's or the student's?

I have been volunteering at Paragon Science Academy for five years. All the teachers are excellent and I would highly recommend the school to anyone that wants a good education for their children. There are a few parents that really push their children and they tend to be unhappy with any situation where the principal doesn't just do everything they demand.

My daughter is in the First grade and is doing well. Some of the teachers are good and some are just average and do not communicate well with parents on how their children are doing. They are almost at the same level of teaching as a CTA & they give homework everyday which is good .The school has kids from different cultures which is good. They need to need to have good experienced teachers and also improve their standard in teaching language arts and phonics.Teachers should be communicative with parents on how their kids are doing and try to help them.

Paragon Science Academy is just a name. The academics are poor, and teachers are not qualified and have no experience for teaching. Also, becuase the high population, the teachers work with only advanced students. The behavior in the school envirment is a big issue to discuss,bullying, inapropriot language, inapropriate actions, and ruffhousing in the upper grades (3rd, 4th) grade. Also, teachers and the two principals ignoring parent's concerns but not all of parents this is abig ? ???? In addition, the school is missing a huge amount of basics, such as a proffessional nurse, proffessional music teacher , cafateria, safe playground, and proffesional P.E teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a parent, the previous post offends me. The information is inaccurate and abusive toward the teachers who work so hard for our kids. Yes, we have had 3 principals in as many years, this has little to do with the gifted program which has developed under the supportive guidance of our current Gifted Program Coordinator. She has always had her door open to address any questions or concerns I have. The program is different from last year, but there were problems with students missing academic content with that model. Now, she is in the classroom to work with the GATE students, as well as the other students in the advanced classes regularly. She also started after school programs so that our children could participate in the Odyssey of the Mind. Plus she is fundraising in order to send students to a GATE camp experience. The students love her and her credentials make her far more than adequately suited for the position. I wonder if the previous parent realizes that she soon with have her doctorate degree and how much time she puts into planning for her students. Any school has its shortcomings, but at Paragon I feel my gifted child has exceptional educational opportunities

It is a shame because this school started out really strong. They had a clearly defined, advanced curriculum and a good method of teaching kids by abilities instead of by age. Unfortunately the lack of consistent direction from the administrative staff lead to issues between teachers and parents, teachers and teachers, teachers and admins and it really affected the ability of the kids to learn. The loss of the Gifted Coordinator was the first major blow and then the loss of the first and second principals really caused more confusion. By the end of the third year over half the teachers were gone, the administration was completely new and most of the curriculum was lost or not arrived. I think this school has the vision to be strong but without consistent and trained staff on the curriculum no one understands the policies especially the students. We had teachers who gave hours of homework, others who gave none, some teachers allowed water and break time, others did not. This is not even getting into the religious time in some of the rooms. Really sad potential is there. Maybe in a few years when they can get back trained staff.

This school is not fit for your child if your child has special needs. I have tried to address special needs of my child with teacher and school administration. They were never supportive. I have moved my child to a public school. They are very supportive. My child was enrolled in this school from the beginning when they started. They are more and more disorganized as the years ago. in the last 4 years, they are 4 different principals. So there is no continuity. Also there is constant turn over of teachers every years. I have seen all good teachers leave.

I'm a student at PSA and in middle school. This is my 3rd year at Paragon, and I would say they have a good curriculum except for science. Yes, I admit that they are disorganized, but trust me- they are INCREDIBLY busy. They try very hard for the school to have great students, and they are so proud with many of the middle school students. All of the teachers LOVE to teach, and thats all they can think about. Please do not blame the admin. for brushing off problems as they have many goals for the kids at the school to excel and cannot solve every issue.

Well they have a Spanish teacher now and are interviewing librarians. The school does have issues but it can't be compared to 20 year old public schools in the area. My son is in 4th grade and doing 5th grade math and my daughter is in 2nd and excelling! There aren't schools that give as high a level of education as this one, it's 10 out of 10 for a reason. I plan to keep my kids at this school and the high school for the education. I don't care if the administration is Turkish or if they want to teach is. We, as Americans, are too narrow minded to realize that learning another language is important regardless of what language it might be. The teachers are great and caring.The kids are exposed to so many cultures, it's just worth it.

As other parents, where do I begin? I really thought that after 3 years of growth that the bugs would have been worked out but it seems to have only gotten worse... much worse. There is something to say when a school is three years old and on it's 3rd principal! What is the reason for our children to learn Turkish! The muslim culture is favored in the parents and in the treatment of their staff. The rudeness of the administration has continued to grow greater each year. Some of the teachers are great this year and really have a passion for the children, but no all. My recommendation? Find a different school for your child - that is what I am in the process doing. Good Luck

This school is a JOKE. They are more Intrested in earning awards than really concentrating on the kids. This school is so dis-organized in all areas except giving homework to the kids. The administration is so out of touch that most of them do not even know some answers to your common questions about the school. This is our first year in the school (kindergarten), but I will be pulling out my child by the end of this week. I've also come to understand that the teachers are there to sign in & out, then pass over thier work to the kids as homework for the parents to help them out. More stress to the parents and I'm so disappointed.

xceptional school, its curriculum is advanced by 1 year.Since learning is accelerated it is highly dependent on repetition and parent involvement at home. This will result in alot of homework, but this can be very rewarding in that you will be surprised and proud of what your child can learn. The Parent Advisory Council is very involved and coordinates a variety of creative and fun events within the year. Feild trips are 2x's per year and are academically focused. The school hosts children from many multicultural backgrounds and in effect they develop a healthy respect for diversity.Great social and acedemic bonuses are the free after school clubs,up to 3. The principal quarterly invites parents to schedule meetings with him which is a chance to communicate any questions or concerns. This school only after 2 years already boasts regional and state placements/awards in various academic competitions and were ranked a Top School for AZ in the 2009 Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Talent Search. In summary this school is only getting better each year and you will soon be seeing an extended waiting list.

This is the school we have been hoping for! Finally, a school that offers advanced instruction in math and language arts tailored to the level my child is at! If a child is 1,2,3,or 4 grade levels above the current grade curriculum-they can accomodate this! Excellent academics(they also offer gifted education), after school clubs, and an administration that really listens to parents and cares about students.

Paragon Science Academy has been a blessing for my kids, my kids came from a highly academic private school, and it was hard to find a school to accommodate their needs both academically and socially. The environment inside the school is very safe and the teachers are exceptional, especially my son s second grade teacher, she is such a blessing. Overall the curriculum is challenging and there is no time for students left to feel board. I have to disagree with anyone who criticize the administration, as a new school, everyday is an improvement experience for the school, but the most important thing (as my personal experience), the principal s office is always open for any complains as well as compliments, he is such a great guy, who really listen very good and accommodate every student s needs. You can really feel the passion inside him towards getting this school to the best place he can take it, and I really like that his first priority is the student, not the teachers or the parents. It is definitely the best choice you will make for your child s future.

Mixed feelings. Our child would've wasted time at any other public school. Paragon's curriculum for the accl courses is one grade up for math & LA (use 1st grade Saxon Math, Spelling & grammar) - LA is mostly taught @ home & no reading in the classrms . Too much time spent doing worksts in and out of class w/ no multisensory and little creativity. Work seems meaningless and does not build appropriately. No discipline or character edu. No fieldtrips but disney movies on some fri ... 2 much HW, even in K, making it hard for other activities. dissappointed w/ the math curr. Had a bad experience w/ our teacher this year, stressed out and overworked it seems. Thinking about a school w/a more well-rounded edu and seasoned teachers.

From my experience with more than one kid attending this school in the past, I found out that the kids' learning depends on the teachers who teach the class. While quite a few teachers are wonderful, others are so uptight about their own ideas and what they think is right schooling. Unfortunately, in general, the teachers (encouraged by the administration and many parents at the school) assign too much HW to kids, often, this homework is meaningless and only serves to appease the parents and give the teachers contentment that they are teaching. Their main focus is on math. while I agree that math is important, a focus on humanities is important too. I liked that most kids were well behaved and that most teachers cared. Teachers that I have had experience with and that were wonderful include Ms Harper, Ms Clapham, Ms O'brien, Mr. Johnson, and Ms Rowley.

I am starting to think I made a mistake by sending my child to this school. Yes, the school is very focused on academics but the management is extremely poor. Ever since Daisy Education left, this place has been a joke. The website always shows old information. Extremely poor management and no commincation with parents. You will have to call or email to find anything. They are always late when it comes to sending out information. No school buses so no field trips. If this continues I will have to pull out my child from this school.

Paragon Science Academy is a great school with a high focus on academics. My son attended Chandler Public Schools for K-3 and I have see a huge improvement since enrolling him. He loves the afterschool clubs that they offer, and has made lots of friends. The teachers are wonderful, and have established a great system of communication with the parents. I do have to say the communication from the administration is lacking. It seems that things take forever to get done, or its done last minute.

Great school with a high focus on academics. My daughter attended a Gilbert public school for Kindergarten and has been at Paragon for her 1st grade year and has shown vast improvement. The ratio of student to teacher is relatively comparable yet some how the performance at paragon is outstanding! My daughter used to complain regularly about being in school when in Gilbert and now I rarely hear her mention her lack of interest. They really challenge the students because I believe they understand more of their capabilities. I feel extremely fortunate to have it recommended to me.

My children attended this school last year. We did not return this year because we felt this school did a poor job of encouraging academic excellence and character development. The school stresses quantity over quality in both the homework and classwork assigned. The school has good test scores - but this could be due to the fact that the school spent two solid weeks (every class period) prior to the AIMS test reviewing for the test and taking practice AIMS tests. This is not a school that promotes higher thinking and a love of learning. It is a school more interested in its test scores than the sucess of the individual student.

This is the second year that we have had our children attending Paragon. The school is very specialized and individualized! The gifted program has challenged the children to find different ways of thinking and to be more creative. Beside math, English, social study and science, the regular curriculum also includes computer lab, art, PE, and music. The FREE after school clubs is an excellent program. It covers from sports (soccer) to art (drawing, sculpture, drama) to little kids favorite clubs to do (dance, Lego, puzzle, K nex, monopoly, games, sewing, chess ) to the challenge academic (spelling bee, geography, blender, yearbook, Spanish, Turkish, Ebru, Simcity). Each student is allowed to have two free clubs after school. This is the fastest way for new kids to make friends. It s true that the school is more intense academically (more homework) but the children love it. They learn and have fun at the same time.

Entering into it's second year, Paragon is living up to our expectations for education! They have increased enrollment, implemented a gifted program, and hired teachers who seem enthusiastic and ready to teach. Curriculum is intense if your child can handle it, advanced if that is where they are placed, and every parent I have spoken with feels their children excelled in academics last year. Administration needs some work, the front office is difficult at times. The principal is very fair and dedicated to improving the school. It's a friendly school, kids accept other kids easily, seems everyone gets along well.

I had three children attending Paragon last school year. We chose Paragon bassed on the low student-teacher ratios (about 22 students per class) and their emphasis on math an science. We were very dissapointed with the science program. My middle school students had little to no hands on lab time - lessons were taught only from the text book. While the math program is 'a year ahead' of the public schools it really only means that the 1st graders and using a 2nd grade text book, the 2nd graders are using a 3rd grade text book, etc. As other parents have stated, there is quite a bit of homework assigned (in the elementary grades) but I found that very little of it was meaningful. When I spoke with the teacher about this I was informed that the administration required this as a measure of the teacher's success. Very dissapointing overall!

I have 2 children who attended PSA last year, one in 3rd grade and one in 6th grade(middle school). The education each of my children received was better than any private school we have sent them to. The teachers challenged our children in all subject areas and exceeded our expectations in math and science. We have been involved in start up schools before and were a little apprehensive. But, every issue I personally brought to a teacher or the administration was dealt with fairly and in a timely manner. We enrolled, of course, for the next year and look forward to an even better year.

Paragon Science Academy has done a great job of working through first year jitters. I attribute the 'good job' to teachers and staff working their butts off... the administration was inattentive at best. More time given to developing school processes would have been helpful. It took almost the entire year for the disciplinary system to be ironed out & forget seeing updated grades on the parentsdirect website. That being said, the academic structure at PSA is phenomenal with emphasis placed on math and science. There is a good sense of community, they work around parents schedules for meetings etc., and they work hard to keep both parents and children involved. Don t let the poor review fool you; PSA expects the best out of you and your children. This is not the place for families unable (or unwilling) to dedicate effort and time. My children will definitely be coming back.

my children have attended this school and they do not give the children a chance to grasp a concept - they give them way to much homework my 3rd grade can easily have 2 hrs of homework - no time for after school activities - you can completely forget about sports - they also are to focused on pointing out the negative about your child rather than focusing on helping them and giving them successes my children will not be returning - also the administration has changed 3 times since school started - no consistency
