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 Paradigm High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Paradigm High School Reviews
Paradigm is a absolutely amazing school. Yes you can claim that they make promises, which they do. However all schools make promises, and rarely do any of them keep them. Paradigm has a huge portion of great, over achieving, excelling, and unquestionably honest students, but there is also a large portion of regected students from other public schools that were kicked out, and were forced to come to paradigm. Paradigm's education system is based on the individual. Each student has the right, and the capability to be as great as they want to be. Wether that is being a garbage man dooming his life away, or being a successful doctor, or lawer. We have students that don't care, but they don't drag the rest of the class down like the rest of the public schools, they actually provide a example of what not to be to all those good behaved students. I firmly beleive that Paradigm is a wonderful and fantastic school and all those that dare to say other wise better have a legitimate argument, other than their kids fake stories about how they were bullied by the teachers.
These parents obviously have no idea what they're talking about. This school has completely improved my life. My grades have improved since I've been going here, I've become more responsible, and the kids there have kept me in line morally.
Not a good school. Lazy teachers make lazy students. Everything you read about it sounds to good to be true. NOT , I feel like I put my kids in a school with a bunch of detention public school trouble makers. I am so disgusted with this school I will never complain about public schools again. At least they are what is expected. Paradigm, makes promises to lure you. RUN now.
Bad school. Makes kids lazy and sloppy. Teachers (except a couple) are very lazy and think the Thomas Jefferson way is kids teach kids and do their own work. Teachers are mentors......that is a joke. They will screw up your transcripts. School full of public school rejects. Office staff hides in office. Kids rule the school. I feel like the school if for detention kids. Kids break standards, use phones, text in class. Kids showing a lot of public display including girls kissing each other in the halls.....wait...the office is hiding. RUN
