Horrible school DO NOT send your children here. My son only attended for 2 days and was harassed bullied and had a staff that did nothing about it.

This school will be shut down next year. Thank god the office staff is rude with dog faces. The teachers are okay that children in their class don't know how to read. The principal is much more worried about his suits that he wears instead of the safety and education of our children...

My son attended this school for 2 years and we were very disappointed with the quality of education and non-caring attitude of the staff. The school does not have the facilities it needs to encourage physical activity, and there is little to no art/craft activities. I am so happy we left this school-look elsewhere if you want quality education and a caring environment!

My foster child attended Paragon for K this year. While the school is not as organized as I am sure it will be in the future, they were very helpful. My son was having difficulties due to his mother's problems. Mr. Lumpkin and especially Mr. Pruitt and Ms. Hoggins were very supportive. We talked on a weekly basis and his day was changed a bit to accommodate his ability to work quickly and correctly. While I was a bit disappointed as I thought they would do more with art and computers. However their individual attention to my son was greatly appreciated.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
