Principal's Message


Dear Parents,


The strategic plan of the Paramount Unified School District is to ensure learning and success for each student by providing a quality education. At the Community Day School, this means success in academics, attendance, and attitude, as well as in other areas. Our focus is to provide students with the skills they need to return to, and thrive at, the school of their choice including Paramount High School, West Campus, Buena Vista, or one of the excellent Paramount USD middle schools.


In the case of CDS students, this may mean helping them see the importance of regular attendance and timeliness. It might mean frequent contact with community agencies, counselors, and service organizations. We have assembled a group of dedicated teachers and staff that believes that every one of our students can learn to make good decisions for themselves. We also believe it is our obligation to overtly teach them how to interact socially and adapt appropriately to a variety of situations.


We are proud of the students who successfully exit our program, and continue to feel encouraged about the gains made by those who are here.
