This School Is Still Great. No Bullying, Improved Grades. The Best School In The Area.

Paradox Valley School combines the detachment and serenity of its gorgeous rural agricultural setting, with totally now and with-it technologies and know-how of our current culture and cutting-edge knowledge. The teachers are so multi-talented and full of good energy, bringing the arts, literary skills, Nature studies, science, math, and physical activity together enjoyably without separated 'ologies'. They inspire the students to excell on their own paths as well as in teams-- like taking the school blue-grass music group to perform in Washington DC! Parents join in writing grants to fund such exciting projects as after-school organic gardening, in which the students get not only fresh air and exercise but also some powerful nutritional knowledge and saleable skills for their future. This school has made a deep and positive impact on our small community.

PVS is one of the best schools that my children have attended. I was pleased with how they performed in the school and how the teachers were unified in education and they allowed the children to excel in areas they knew well and encouraged them to work on their struggling areas with a positive attitude. I thank all the teachers and office staff for their diligent efforts in working with the students. I do so wish that we had a school like that up where we live now. There is no comparison and PVS you should be proud of yourselves and your accomplishments with the students. Thank you J& B Brown

I just finished reading all the reviews. The only thing I have to say to the last review about 'Send your child to Telluride' is, does the 'Top 2%' academically mean anything? My three children started at Paradox in 2000. This is by far the best school that my children have gone to. The one on one has helped them tremendously. The multi age classrooms have helped them realize that they are equal and can look to their classmates for extra help. Two of my children were below grade level when they started Paradox. Between the diligence of the teachers at school and parental involvement at home they have surpassed their grade level and then some. I am very pleased with the education level of Paradox as well as the arts. It takes a village to raise a child. This little school proves that. Way to go Paradox Valley!

The arts programs that are available are amazing for such a small school. There are only about 12 kids in each classroom, and both of my kids' teachers are great.

My children have been enrolled at Paradox Valley School for several years now, and I can't say enough about the quality of this little school. The teachers are caring and compassionate, and they make sure that the curriculum is interesting. My kids have many opportunities here they would not have otherwise -- to do field trips and hands-on projects. They also get free private piano lessons and many after school activities. Best of all, there are so few kids in their classrooms (usually about 12) that they get a lot of attention and help. It is easy to see why this school ranks at the very top of the state academically.

Paradox Valley School is one fantastic school. My fifth grade daughter is behind in math. They put her in an exceptional after school program that helped her maintain what she knew as well as challenge her on the facts she had trouble in. The school does not hold a student to their age appropriate grade. If a student is capable of doing higher work than their grade, then the student is allowed to move on. My second grader was allowed to do third grade and sometimes fourth grade work. And she excelled in it. The school has a staff committed to academic excellence. They have exceptional afterschool programs. The students can learn to play piano or any bluegrass instrument,they have a pioneer program, a tutor program for students below grade level and all field trips are educational. This school is by far the best my children have ever been in.

Teachers are unable to pick up on even the most obvious needs of students in their class. For example, a 5th grader who is a bright child was failing math. Why? Because she hadn't yet learned her multiplication tables. She was given a letter to take home congratulating her on the fact that her failing grade qualified her to stay after school for math enrichment classes. In these after school sessions, no one there figured out she needed to review her times tables either. Send your child to Telluride!
