Paragon is a small charter school and we didn't have very many facilities or resources until the new gym opened up a few weeks ago. Despite this, I think Paragon has a pretty good administrative team (especially the new counselor) and great academics. Overall, my experience has been pretty good. I think most of the teachers really care about their students on a personal level and there are a multitude of clubs to choose from. The only thing I have a problem with is the lack of sports teams and art clubs.

Paragon Science Academy is a very nice school to be enrolled in. The teachers are helpful and caring, the school is diverse, and the environment is relaxing. The only problem for me was that they didn't offer a lot of online classes and that we had to take some classes that we don't really need. Also there aren't that many clubs or sport activities. Other then that, I would recommend parents to take there kids to Paragon!
Have been attending PSA for 4 years, overall school experience was okay, not the best. The education is pretty good in the STEM categories, but the classes for art(since only one year of art is required to graduate, it is offered in junior year, i really liked this class) and music, and anything to do with sports besides soccer and basketball are not that great. The school is pretty small but there is a lot of diversity when it comes to the students. The staff is mostly friendly, and some of the teachers are exceptional, some not as great.
