Pace Academy Reviews

Due to the nature of my husband's job, we have moved several times. My daughter has attended both public and private schools in a few different states. Pace Academy is by far the best school she has ever attended! We have been so impressed with Pace, and the students were so kind and welcoming when my daughter joined the class last year. I would highly recommend Pace if you're looking for a private school in the Atlanta area.

Pace is a joyless environment where learning is a chore, where assignments and tests are endlessly piled on, where students struggle to keep up, and where teachers are drill sergeant-like martinets. Do not believe it when you hear from school leadership that Pace wants students to value learning for its own sake or have time to reflect on accomplishments. The academic program seems set up primarily to prove that Pace can be as tough as any top school, almost as if the place is insecure and feels it has something to prove. The result is a stress culture and a conformity culture. Finally, do not be fooled when you see the college counseling list of students going to Ivy League universities or facsimiles. Nearly all of those who do are recruited athletes or legacies. Don't even get me started on just how much this school cares about sports--maybe more than academics?
I attended a few schools growing up, both in the north and the south (and both public / private).

Any negative reviews are the exception, not the rule - I went from a school with a mantra that made it seem like they would "let the kids fend for themselves and focus on bringing out the best only in the very best" to "lets motivate every kid be their best self" at Pace. If I had stayed at the former, I never would've been accepted to the variety of colleges that I was, and I never would've reached my full potential. That difference alone is huge, and it doesn't even touch upon Pace's very inclusive student culture, comprehensive college-ready classes, exceptional teachers (who had passions' that rivaled my Ivy-league college professors'), great sports programs, and diverse club/art opportunities.

I understand it's pricey and hard to get in, but if you can - attend Pace. I know my future kids will.
