Both of my children attended Paragon last year. One child was in Kindergarten and the other was in 3rd grade. Both children learned an incredible amount! I was/am very pleased with their academic successes. While some of the new school kinks need to be worked out, the academics are outstanding. I was also very pleased with the teachers we had. We are definitely re-enrolled and will be attending in the upcoming 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 will not be returning. Communication is lacking, for a school that emphasis is on technology...it's far from it. Favoritism is very apparent. Administration needs to reconsider some of the teachers, make sure they hire someone with actual experience in teaching not just assigning homework!
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
