About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Paramount Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Paramount Academy Reviews
Good, small school - diverse student body in spite of its smallness, too. Discipline is enforced (at least in the younger grades; I can't speak for the older ones yet) and standards are reasonable. Love that they require uniforms! So far, teachers have been great - they really seem to know my daughter's strengths and weaknesses as an individual and while I'd like her to be a little more challenged, I feel like she is learning and has emerged a very strong reader. Principal is very caring and communicates with parents well. For the younger grades at least, this is a good local alternative to overcrowded public schools with myriad discipline issues. I feel like this school upholds my family's values.
I have spent the past 9 years at this school and have enjoyed the time I've been there....the teachers are fantastic and I recommend the school to all.
Paramount is an awesome school. Teachers there care!
This school is amazing and really cares about their children there!
