Dear Paradise Schools Families,

It is an exciting time in the Paradise Schools’ history as the 2017-18 school year will mark the opening of our third and final campus, the much anticipated Paradise Honors Middle School. This campus completion, along with additional improvements at all of our schools, will make Paradise Schools a uniquely comprehensive K-12 charter system.

As with any expansion, there are often bumps along the way. Just like we experienced with the completion of Paradise Honors High School in 2011, the new middle school is also going through some growing pains. Due to extensive building permit delays, our initial construction began much later than intended. Despite our construction crew’s diligent efforts, there appears to be no way to make up enough of the precious time which was lost. The middle school building will not be complete until the start of the second quarter of the school year.

The Paradise Schools’ Leadership Team has thoroughly investigated a number of different solutions which included delayed calendars, evening school sessions, alternate locations, and temporary buildings. Our foremost concern was to offer a solution that would have the least amount of negative impact on our students and families while maintaining academic excellence. To ensure these results, the best solution is to divide our middle school by grade levels and house students on the PEC and PHHS campus for the first quarter. 

Even with the delay to the middle school construction, all schools in the Paradise Schools’ system will start as scheduled August 7th. All 6th and 7th grade students will be attending classes at the very familiar PEC campus, while the 8th grade students will take advantage of one of our newly constructed buildings on the PHHS campus. We are currently finalizing the details. After the completion of this school year, informational meetings will be offered for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade parents. The date and time for these informational meetings will be shared soon. To ensure we provide answers to your questions, please complete the following survey:  https://goo.gl/forms/gOpXy4RhYfkFaDyD2

This is an exciting time for all of us. On behalf of Paradise Schools, I want to thank you for being a valued member of our school community and also for your patience and understanding as we continue to grow. We look forward to our new facilities and a fantastic school year.

Best Regards,

Tim Gonzales
