I agree that performance at the school seems to have gone down. The school is growing way too fast and the small teacher/student ratio that was so attractive, is now too high. Stll, I feel better sending my children here rather than the Dysart schools.
I've had my kids in this school for 3 years now and I have watched it go down hill from something exciting to something frustraiting. They are growing way too fast and the administration seems more pre-occupied by changes, growth and the future than the education of the students currently attending. It's very sad, it was an excellent school - hopefully they won't continue the downward trend.
This school does not provide quality education. Their discipline methods are questionable. Teachers are not motivated to teach students at their level.
Best school in the district, hands down. I would like to see a closer teacher / parent relationship though. I'd like to know what my 7th and 6th grader are working. They also need more extracurricular activities like a sports program. Right now, they aren't able to play other schools in the district.
I feel my children are getting an excellent education at PEC. I only wish it had a bus/transportation system and more sports/extracurricular activities for the children to do after school.
We have heard nothing but great comments about Paradise Education Center. We are in the process of searching for a school for our child and hope she will be able to go there.
I feel that Paradise Education Center has the best learning enviorment for students in the Surprise area. The teachers seem to have a good relationship with the administration which helps them perform to the best of their ability. The music program is improving but could use another teacher to handle the class load. The school is building a new cafeteria. This is a great addition as the PE teachers will now have a gym to teach in instead of constantly teaching outside! I don't have anything to say about the 7th and 8th grades as I have no students in those grades.
My daughter has only been at PEC for two years, but I have been impressed with the quality of her teachers and the school programs. The students and their progress come first. I would highly recommend this school to any parent!
I go to this school. Its awesome. The teachers are wonderful. I am in 7th grade. They have great curriculum. The teachers make learning fun and easy. They have a great sports, choir, and band systems. I love this school. It the best one I have ever been too.
The school has an outstanding very capable principal, that really cares about each child and parent.
This school has a great principal that has been increasing the role that parents play in the education of their children. She provides excellent leadership for an excellent school.
I'd like to yell at the top of my lungs to all the parents out there to 'Stop looking' this school has it all, excellent teachers, who care for the children they teach, safety like no other school, discipline ! thats right, no talking back here! Children are taught to accept responsibility for their actions,and not blame others. As to the leadership, they are the example by which the rest follows..Treat others as you wish to be treated- With respect !
Paradise is a wonderful school and I am thankful everyday that I dont have to send my kids to school in the Dysart system.
I think Paradise Education Center excels at trying to meet all the individual needs of the students. They continue to grow each year, which increases the family environment they have established on campus.
