During the school year, students participate in Special Olympics individual and team competitions for basketball and soccer, with our teams advancing to state level competitions yearly. This program is coached by Paragon staff and parent volunteers. As a result, student participation is very high.
In addition to the development of social and behavioral skills, students learn the importance of teamwork, good sportsmanship, and how to win and lose with a good attitude.
In 2015, The Paragon School was honored to receive the Orange County Special Olympics Program of the Year award.
