Paramount Schools of Excellence gives every child access to an exceptional education. Dedicated to providing an environment where children feel safe, secure, and supported, Paramount guides students to discover the joy of learning with confidence and excitement.

We opened our first campus, Brookside, in 2010. Since then, we've been perfecting the approach we use there and at our other locations and Online Academy. No matter which Paramount school your child attends, they will develop a love of learning. Because we are ONE PARAMOUNT.
