School Director’s Message


Brookside Focus:

Support, Communication, Dynamic Instruction

Paramount Brookside is devoted to academic achievement, community involvement, and character development. Students at Paramount are challenged to meet high levels of expectation. With the support of staff and parents, students show growth and success through hard work, grit, and perseverance. The devotion of students and staff to our academics earned Paramount an “A” school designation from the Indiana Department of Education for six consecutive years and recognition as a 2018 Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

Paramount values parent and community involvement. Our athletic and robotics teams allow us to bring families in the local community together to support students outside of school. Participation in extracurricular activities allows our children an opportunity to learn valuable lessons about character, hard work, and teamwork that carry over into our classrooms. Paramount staff members stay active and involved in the local community by participating in a variety of events including neighborhood cleanups, community meetings, and East Downtown Indianapolis Neighborhoods (EDIN) games.

The distinct features of our school allow students to have unique learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Through our Time and Space Discovery Center, students can experience hands-on lessons in our Solar System room and planetarium that incorporate state standards that connect to classroom lessons. Our urban farm provides many real-world experiences that teachers can connect to math, science, social studies, and ELA standards. We welcome visitors to tour Paramount on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. and see what our school is about!
