Founded on the visionary foresight of Sardar Balraj Singh Shergill, Paragon has carved a niche for itself among the prestigious educational institutions in the region. With a commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals, the school has consistently evolved to meet the changing dynamics of education and societal expectations.

Since its foundation, Paragon has celebrated numerous milestones and its planned expansion with a residential smart school underscores Paragon’s ambition to extend its educational ethos to a broader community. This is complemented by the integration of cutting-edge technology and innovative teaching practices, including well-equipped laboratories, smart classrooms, and a focus on skill education that prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century.

So, I believe to provide students environment that enhance their inner potential to accept challenges of life in stronger way.

Under your leadership, the school has achieved many milestones. What strategies have you implemented to achieve educational excellence, and how do you measure success?

Jasmeet Kaur: In order to promote a 21st century skill-based education curriculum, our key focus has been on faculty development – providing continuous teacher training for imparting the latest in pedagogy for the students whilst ensuring a respect for inculcating values of tradition and discipline. At the heart of it, our hard-working teachers have always strived for the well-being of the future of our students.
