Pace is an innovative high school offering students a chance to learn about and use technology everyday. Using an online curriculum, Pace students get to learn and achieve at their own speed, while having qualified teachers to help out when they are stuck. Overall, Pace is a great alternative to the standard brick and mortar setting of traditional schools and is a great choice for students who don't thrive in those traditional schools.
My sons have attended Pace Academy for their entire high school years. I really am so happy to have found this school for my sons, as they have been able to have a great learning environment. The student to teacher ratio is about 20 to 1 and they get great support. Their aims prep classes are amazing and both of my sons have passed their aims tests. They have some incentives that are fun and my sons have really enjoyed, they have helped make the learning process a little competitive which they like. One of my favorite things about Pace Academy is, there is NO bullying or drama, the staff work with the students regularly to ensure that the students get along and understand the bullying issues. Pace is an incredible school for the students that are serious about getting their high school diploma. I wish more parents would get involved with Pace academy, there are so many things that parents could help with.
I am so impressed with this school! It is just the kind of place my daughter needs. She has been a handful and we just didn't know why she couldn't adjust to high school when we moved here to the Verde Valley. We enrolled her at the end of the school year, ready to start in September. We have met with the Special Education teacher, and she has to be one of the most caring individuals we have encountered. Our daughter has been tested, and we now know where her weaknesses lie. She will be getting individualized attention and we're excited for the prospects. The new Special Ed teacher as well as all the new staff we have met are impressive. Thank you for having a place like this available to us. And - something else - she'll be picked up for school with a new van! I work full time, and this will be a great help! So happy to have found you!
My child will not go back to this school. The special education teacher that was there is not coming back. Also, looking at the special education budget on the website, it was cut 20%.
My kids will be returning for the 2013/14 school year, after attending this school for the last school year. This school has helped my students achieve tremendous success. The school is definitely heading in the right direction to help students prepare for college and jobs that are looking for students with the skills they are learning at Pace Academy. What a great experience for my kids and for myself as a parent. The staff at Pace Academy is very accommodating for my kids and they are always willing to go the extra mile. I will not send my kids to any other school, and recommend this school to all my friends.
