    The teachers are wonderful and really give extra time to their students. They answer questions and give children room to think. The staff is polite and the campus is well kept. They are also a school to watch. A wonderful school overall. Send your child.

    Excellent student involvement and the teachers are great. They keep in touch with parent in regards to student academic performance.

    I have to agree with the first comment made about the school. I am not sure where the problem lies but the lack of advanced classes in middle school in paramount is costing more than a few of the 'advanced' kids from getting all the benefits they need.

  • (8 years ago)

    The main problem with this school is the lack of communication with parents in regards to school performance.An issue I have seen with the teachers is that when they have a students that has attended preschool and is a little more advanced than the other kids they seem to just let those kids stay behind while the other kids catch up. I don't think that we as involved parents should have our kids be punished for attending preschool.The teacher don't challenge their advanced students therfore they fall behind or at mediocre levels.
