Be a part of Paramount's newest high school!
 
I write to you as the inspired and enthusiastic principal of our community’s newest high school, Odyssey STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics] Academy. Odyssey will offer the community an exceptional grades 9–12 high school experience for scholars. Opening in August 2018, Odyssey will begin with a founding freshmen class and add an additional grade level each year. The curriculum, based on the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenges, will engage scholars in society’s most challenging issues such as artificial intelligence, personalized medicine, and urban infrastructure renewal.
 
At Odyssey, we believe that important learning occurs beyond the school walls. As such, all scholars will work side-by-side with industry professionals through an extensive internship program and graduate prepared for success in college, career, and life. Your scholar may choose to attend Odyssey STEM Academy next year. The enclosed materials explain the application process. You are strongly encouraged to attend one of the informational meetings listed in the packet. Should your family decide to enroll, you must complete and submit the application by Friday, January 19, 2018 @ 4:30 pm. I am honored to serve the community and look forward to meeting you soon.

What Matters to us

Authentic Work

Learners engage in authentic work that matters to them and the outside world. They use inquiry to design projects that integrate their minds, hands, and hearts well developing solutions to society’s greatest STEM challenges. Literacy, numeracy, content knowledge and skills are strengthened through connections to meaningful, culturally relevant experiences across all disciplines. Intentional use of technology ignites anytime, anywhere learning. Learners make their thinking visible by curating and sharing their work with authentic audiences.

Equity

Our community of learners celebrates the uniqueness of each individual and provides equitable access to programs and opportunities while promoting academic and social-emotional well-being for all. Meaningful ties among community members foster a trusting, caring, and mutually respectful culture. Intentionally diverse and integrated learning environments create a community-wide culture of achievement to thrive in a multicultural, global society.

Family

Empowering learners to reach their full potential requires the combined effort of staff, parents, and the community. Communication reaches beyond the standard parent-teacher conference to include parents and families as valued and trusted participants in the learning process. Recognizing, understanding, and valuing individual backgrounds and life experiences contributes to learners’ positive socio-emotional and academic growth.
