I have only been at Pace Academy for three years now, but I can already tell that it’s the best school in the world. The environment there is so friendly and accepting, and the academics are superb! Pace allows students to pursue multiple talents and does not force them to just focus on one. I could go on and on about all of the elements that keeps Pace students striving for excellence, but I must end this review at some point.

Pace was a good experience for me. Most classes are small (mine were about 10 students) and discussion based. It can be competitive at times, and as students move into the last years of high school some can become focused on taking the most AP classes. There can be some condescension from the students taking 5 APs towards students who aren’t able to handle such a challenging workload. Even the lowest level classes at Pace are plenty challenging. It’s concerningly common for students to stay awake all night, or past midnight, doing homework. These are usually the students with a very full course load. Mental health at Pace isn’t great, in part because of the academics.
Pace students are involved. Everyone seems to be incredibly talented at something, whether it’s sports, academics, music, theater, writing, or something else. I don’t know of anyone who didn’t do something outside of school during their time at Pace, and I think it would be a waste of the experience not to.
Highly qualified teachers. Administration is very conscientiousness of students' needs. Top-notch sport coaches, facilities, and equipment. Since it's such a small school, everyone knows each other and there's a since of unity and closeness. The school also focuses heavily on developing the student not just from an academic standpoint, so there are many non-academic resources and assemblies that really are mind-opening.
