Integral Student Outcomes

Written by Paraclete High School

Integral Student Outcomes(ISO's) are goals that we have for every student by the time they graduate from Paraclete High School. ISO's are a part of the accreditation process which all Catholic Schools must do every six years. We are accredited through WCEA and WASC and are preparing to become accredited again to ensure a quality education is available to your child. We are asking all parents to review them and send any feedback or comments that they may have regarding them to Paraclete@paracletehs.org.

Integral Student Outcomes

The Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, is the guiding light for faculty, staff and students at Paraclete High school. Through the Spirit we are inspired to teach as Christ taught. Guided by the Spirit we aspire to the following core values: Spirit in Christ, Spirit as family, Spirit as Knowledge, Spirit for success, and Inspired to Serve. With these values in mind, the entire Paraclete community will prepare our graduates to be:
