Learning assumes a choice. It cannot be forced. It must first be desired in order to be attained. The culture that is maintained at Paradigm provides an invitation to make that choice. Thus, making the school environment an effective, positive, and value-based learning culture is a high priority. Everyone in the school, including scholars, parents, staff and faculty is expected to exemplify the school’s values. Each scholar and parent signs a code of conduct contract with the school at registration to uphold these values.
Paradigm Schools has two overarching school-wide expectations which are:
1) Engage yourself in learning
2) Honor and Respect yourself, mentors, peers, time and property.
Every member of the Paradigm community commits to see the “nobility in every person” and to contribute to the building of a safe and nurturing culture. Our culture cultivates an environment of growth; the growth of free-souls.
I love Paradigm. My children have never been happier, and have found a love of learning that was missing in their previous education!Julia H.
I went to Paradigm all through high school. Best experience ever. Not only did it help me focus on my strengths, but it also prepared me for college with its challenging curriculum that makes you think outside the box. The mentors there care about each of their students individually, and want nothing more than the students’ success.Jennifer L.
In Fall 2019, Paradigm Schools became the first public school in the state of Utah to offer virtual and augmented reality technology to scholars. Headset devices are used to enhance learning opportunities for our scholars, allowing them to explore virtual places around the world, on another planet, or during a completely different time period. Whether it’s visiting the surface of Mars or exploring the Pyramids of Giza, this is a completely immersive learning experience.
