Paragon Elementary School implements project-based learning in Kindergarten through 4th grade which is a hands-on approach to learning. Students take ownership in what they want to learn and how they will meet their goals.


Together we challenge and inspire our children through rich experiences, empowering them to achieve success while making positive contributions to our world.


Paragon Elementary provides a quality education in a safe and orderly environment for all students to be productive, responsible citizens and inspire lifelong learning.


The staff, parents, and community of Paragon Elementary School believe that the school’s mission is two-fold: to teach students to be responsible to themselves, and to be beneficial to society. When the students have completed Paragon School, they will have been given the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to achieve lifelong learning and a strong, positive self-image. We at Paragon accept the responsibility of motivating and assisting the students in reaching their unique potential in a safe, stimulating environment.

The Rock: “The Rock” sits out front of Paragon in the square concrete. “The Rock” was part of the original school building built in 1900. “The Rock” has continued to be a symbol of the community and of the 4 school buildings here in Paragon, Indiana.
