This is such a great school! All three of our children have attended since they were in kindergarten. Our daughter has had some health issues and the teachers and administration have worked so hard to accommodate her. I do not think that would have happened at a larger school. Our oldest just graduated and the school made it such a great experience, given the current pandemic. The found a way to keep safe social distancing in accordance with the police department. They made it so each student still got to do "the walk" with an outdoor stage and everything! My son did not feel like he was missing out in any way. What a great experience! This school is the best! The staff is incredible and our children feel safe and happy. Many of their classmates say they were bullied in other schools but Pac Bay is "not like that" according to them. My husband and I are so happy with our kids in this environment!

Such a Christ-centered and beautiful campus! My oldest daughter graduated here when it was formerly Alma Heights, and now my second daughter is here. I appreciate the High School Retreat that they have at the start of the year, it helps build relationships early! I also appreciate the community center being open until 6pm for working parents!
We are a former Pac Bay family that was impacted by the closure of K-3 grade. This has put a lot of families in a tough position along with staff and teachers. They also let us know after we re-enrolled for the the 2020-2021 school year, which led us to believe that the school year will be happening. They said it was due to Covid-19 and financials impacting their decision, which is understandable. However, I am sure they knew prior re-enrollment. The school has changed since new leadership came in and lost their Christ-centered meaning of the school. While we were though, the teachers were great and caring, which is heart breaking for the teachers that lost their jobs because of the closure. We plan on not returning the middle school and high school either. The tuition has gone up a lot with very little return. There are teachers with no credentials and experience to be teaching. If you are considering this school, do your research first and consider other schools in the area.
