Public School Done Differently

At Paramount Schools of Excellence, we say we’re “public school done differently.” But what does that really mean? Picture science lessons on a learning farm with goats and bee apiaries. Or a middle school boasting a direct pathway to Purdue Polytechnic. What about an Online Academy for those who thrive on flexible schedules? What can Paramount mean for your child? Explore the possibilities.
