About Our School

At Paramount Brookside, learning never stops. Whether through eLearning or on campus, our school engages both the student and the family in the educational process. Our teachers are dedicated to providing the highest level of education in both eLearning and classroom instruction. When off-campus, our teachers are dedicated to communication, engaging the student and family in the educational process. Even from a distance, our teachers create unparalleled supports through engaging and student-centered eLearning lessons. Services that students would receive during a typical school day, such as meals, counseling, parent support, and health consultations, are always available during eLearning days through the school’s eLearning platform and school-based Call Center. While on-campus, the excitement for learning is present in the hallways and classrooms and spills out into the community. Our state-of-the-art facilities, one-to-one technology, robotics, and opportunities for growth make us a smart choice for your child’s education. Our students take pride in their responsibilities and strive to increase their capacity. Our school leaders and highly qualified teachers are committed to the future, working year after year to ensure that opportunities for success are individually molded for every student. Outside of the classroom, Paramount Schools utilize sports, robotics, urban farming, and countless other after school activities to bring the real world to life. As one of the top-performing models in the state of Indiana, Paramount Schools provide an innovative academic approach that is focused and supportive. Paramount Brookside's goal is to build a better future by instilling values that make its students, graduates, parents, and staff continue to seek excellence throughout their lives.
