Open Quote Paramount Charter Academy is an excellent choice for Y5- 8th grade education in Kalamazoo, MI. Students attending this school strive for a college education and have a solid foundation based on: Academic Excellence, Moral Focus, Student Accountability and Parent Partnership. Each student begins their day with a hand shake, direct eye contact and a morning greeting. The teachers are outstanding, preparing the students for academics and encouraging leadership values. After moving on to High School, Paramount Charter Academy students are eligible for 67% of the KPS Promise if they continue their education within the KPS School District. Why transition a student every 3 years when you can keep them in one place from Kindergarten through Middle School? The best part is the dress code, what a budget saver! And the even better than best part is the time spent in the car each day with your child, sharing their excitment and stories - that time is priceless! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
