Mission & Philosophy

The Paragon School believes in the potential of every child.  We lead students on a journey of discovery by offering a progressive but proven approach to the educational and emotional development of children with autism spectrum disorder and Asperger’s syndrome.

Students receive a tailored education aimed at providing academic success centered around the social success elements of conduct and values. We are proud to have developed a school based on a clear mission and philosophy that ensures students are fully prepared for their future role as effective contributors in the workplace and society.

Our Philosophy

The Paragon School is transformational in that it strives to shift the life of each student, his or her family and our broader community.

We achieve this by meeting the needs of each student academically, socially, and behaviorally. This provides hope, a positive outlook, and sets the stage for each student to become a valued, productive, and successful member of society.

We provide a consistent, stable, values-based atmosphere with a focus on compassion, quality, and academic achievement.
