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.

Pace is by far the best school in the Atlanta area. It has amazing teachers who are able to have one on one student interactions based on Pace's smaller size. That is something other schools can't give. Pace also have great sports where students are encouraged to try new things but also win state championchips. Student life is positive and encouraging and compared to fellow buckhead schools much more respectful. Diversity wise Pace has a wide range of students and teachers and has clubs, committees, and leaders dedicated to diversity. Pace offers the ability to start and grow through clubs like math club, women mentoring women, Disney club, photography club, knights of the round table, and more. Pace is a challenging academic school but Pacs provides many different oppertunities to get student tutors, talk to teachers, and get work done. Pace has beautiful buildings but the people are the best part here at Pace.
I love the academics and the arts, as well as the support for the whole child at Pace Academy. I would like to see more work done to support diversity and integration among the students, though I could see evidence of multiple attempts already. Overall I was very happy with my daughter's experience there.
