Paradise Elementary School is a small rural K-8 school located in the Central Valley of Modesto, California. We provide a safe, nurturing environment where all students can feel comfortable and succeed.
It is our belief that parents and guardians have an obligation to participate in their child’s education. It is essential that a high level of communication, trust, respect, and teamwork exist among all stakeholders of Paradise Elementary School.
We are proud of our academic strength and are always seeking ways to improve our strong instructional program. Our students are encouraged and recognized for their positive contributions to their school through such things as monthly morning assemblies, Paradise Pride Cards, Honor the Code, and our daily morning announcements.
We have a very strong after-school program that assists students with homework, tutoring groups, guitar and string lessons, band, dance lessons, cooking classes, and many more. Paradise truly provides a place for all students to learn and grow as valuable and contributing citizens of the community.
