Our Curriculum: Paragon
Paragon is Powerful
Paragon provides an arena for reflective discourse on the common good and application of social values, enabling students to define their roles and responsibilities as enlightened citizens. Paragon increases a student’s ability to write, classify, interpret, analyze, summarize, evaluate, and present information in well-reasoned ways.
Paragon is powerful because it recognizes, cultivates, and celebrates the potential and success of each unique student.
Studies document the correlation between a strong arts program anchored in the core curriculum and superior standardized tests. Rather than relegate art, music, and foreign language to the periphery of the curriculum, Paragon’s design integrates them into its interdisciplinary center. Arts, drama, music and dance, interrelated to the core curriculum, draws many marginal students into the center of learning.
