About Us

Mission Statement

As a community of educators, students and parents, we strive to create a positive school environment where students, faculty and staff can maximize their potential in a joyful setting. Through collaborative efforts we endeavor to make middle school years some of the best years of our students’ lives by establishing systems, procedures and norms to create a school that is academically challenging, physically and emotionally safe, and universally respectful of others

Vision

Build a collaborative culture with teachers, parents and students focused on improving and measuring student learning to provide students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in high school and beyond.

Professional Learning Communities

Research Indicates that schools improve when teachers are given the time and support to work together to clarify essential student learning, develop common assessments for learning, analyze evidence of student learning, and use that evidence to learn from one another.
 
To facilitate this process, we have set aside Wednesdays as 'Early-Out' days. On these days, the school day for students ends at 1:50 and teachers use the time to work together in teams to continuously improve the educational program at PINT.
 
To keep the total instructional time the same, an additional 12 minutes has been added to each of the other school days.
 
Working in Professional Learning Communities has enabled the teachers at Paradise Intermediate to make great strides at improving student learning.
