    "We left after one year here. They lost 40% of their staff to the new Jackson Academy (public) and the principal retired (which was a good thing - he was burnt out and a bit of a grouch). I heard the one is nice, but don't know much about her. We really liked our teacher there, but the class sizes remain high. You can make it work, but consider private if you can afford it. If not, consider one of the other local schools. It's not ALL about test scores people."

    "Three of my grandchildren attend Paradise Elementary and I am very pleased with the curriculum development, student activities, and the communications from the principal and parent organizations. This is my first experience with elementary public education, as my own children and my older grandchildren had Catholic schooling. I am also a teacher, so I can say with complete confidence that Paradise provides a well rounded education for its students."

    "Paradise Valley is a wonderful school. I actually had my daughter enrolled in a private school when I thought there was no hope to get her in {our zoned school is a program improvement school and is rated poorly}. Upon being notified by the district that our preferred placement application was approved, I was initially hesitant to transfer her. Now I am very glad I did. The parent participation is almost overwhelming. The principal is very involved in day to day and his leadership is evident. The social opportunities and diversity on campus, as compared to the private school, are providing a more positive and inclusive experience for my daughter. The academic curriculum,especially considering the number of students in class,have allowed my daughter to be challenged and thrive way beyond grade level standards. I rated the teacher quality a 4, is based on their inability to communicate more regularly with the parents and the occasional lapse in communication.I am aware it is due to the sheer number of students/parents they have but there have been communication breakdowns regarding events and volunteering.Paradise is a wonderful school that exceeded my expectations; which were high."

    "My 10 year old daughter loves this school!! It is a small intimate school with excellent teachers and staff. Friendly and supportive teachers who make your child feel special. Small student ratio."

    "I have two children at Paradise and I am very happy with the school, especially after the new principal arrived. He is a great principal in my opinion, he is alway available to the parents and since he has arrived the scores and the schools focus have been greatly enhanced. Each year the juggling of class sizes and teachers gets harder and harder because of our state budget issues but I think that the principal has done the best he can given the situation he and the school are in. In the 3 yrs that my children have been there, the teachers have been great. They are involved in students and seem to really care about each kid. As for parental involvement, like most things it is 80-20, 80% of the volunteering is being done by the same 20%. We need more parents to get involved more often, it is a great school and can only be made enhanced with more interaction from a large number of parents. At the end of the day I would not want my children to got to a different public school, they love the teachers, they have great friends and are happy and excited about going to school each day, as a parent what more could you ask."
