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!

I love Paragon Science Academy. My name is Banu and i am a junior at Paragon Science Academy. I have been in many other schools but the best school is Paragon Science Academy. I have been in Paragon Science Academy for three years. Paragon Science Academy is very good school it has really good teachers. In other schools teachers prioritize test scores over learning, but in this school the most important thing is how well did the student understand the topic. Clubs and Activities in our school is so fun we have a lot of different extracuricular activities like: FTC robotics. Science Olympiad, Math Counts , Folk Dance, Yearbook, Chess, Library Contest, language etc.
The academics are above average, and this school provides good extracurricular activities, such as Science Olympiad and MathCounts, for your child to compete in. The teachers in the school are okay. What I like is that their homework load is balanced, not too much and not too less. Food is also okay because not a lot of schools have good tasting food. Although it doesn't fit our liking, it's the best that we can offer here. Safety is good in my opinion is because for safety drills the teachers aren't notified when the drills will happen. This creates a real life situation since, in real life, we'd never know when a fire could start or when someone could break into the school. What I dislike about this school is that there aren't any good equipment for Physical Education, as we don't even have a gym or a grass field. Another thing I dislike is the limited languages that we can learn at this school (the only languages we can learn are Spanish and Turkish).
