Went to this school for all 4 years and never had a problem. The faculty and staff were always so welcoming and kind, making sure we all felt safe while in school. Pace offers a wide variety of fun and challenging clubs and activities which I’ve been a part of. Despite being a low-income school, we didn’t let that stop us from excelling in sports consistently making it to playoffs rounds and matches for several of our sports like football, basketball (for both girls and boys) volleyball, tennis and even golf! I’m extremely proud to be a part of the 2020 graduating class of Pace high school. I’ve made lots of life long friends and as well as everlasting memories. Pace high school is an amazing school and is often considered an under dog and high underestimated. My experience here was nothing short of great and I wish the upcoming classes can take full advantage of all the available resources.

My experience at Pace Early College High School was extremely unexpected. Frankly, I never imagined that I would miss high school; I strongly believed that I would be so glad to leave. However, graduation left me with a bittersweet feeling. I was reminded of the challenging journey I pushed myself through and completed. I was reminded of my greatest victories. I was reminded of my most horrible defeats. I was reminded of how every situation I was placed in throughout my high school career molded a sculpture in which strength was the key component. From the moment I stepped into my new high school as a completely lost, confused, and immature child to the moment I left graduation as a confident and mature individual, I received so much worthwhile experiences. The way I developed as a runner, instrumentalist, and student all aided my development of character. Overall, I learned numerous qualities at this school; I would not change a single experience from my time in high school.
Pace Early College High School was a great high school to attend. It enforced discipline and motivation. It helped students strive for success an was always involved in making sure students were academically, emotionally, and physically well! Pace has lots of school spirit and for that I am proud! It gave me an opportunity to be part of the dance team for all for years and really boosted my self-esteem! My school loves to give back to the community and help out those in need or just to clean up our city! The staff were all so helpful and always supporting sports/organizations. overall my experience has been going splendid! James Pace High educates students, Graduates leaders and empowers the community!
