We really recommend this high school. Our son graduated from Pacific Academy last year. They use project based learning and are very supportive of all the kids. It has small class size and the teachers get to know each student.

My daughter is a sophomore. She was not happy in her previous high school and transferred to Pacific Academy in Feb. 2011. The Principal, teachers and staff at Pacific Academy are really caring about students. Pacific Academy's curriculum is rigorous and their graduates got into good colleges. They offer regular, honors, AP classes and online courses. The teachers are very knowledgeable and supportive. Whenever my daughter has homework problems, she always gets teachers' extra help. Pacific Academy focus on project based learning, which makes the learning really fun. They teach students to respect the environment, respect each other and has global view. The school arrange outdoor education every month. Students do service learning, learn about recycle, go kayaking, or mountain climbing. My daughter really loves this school. She has never been more motivated or happier. I am really happy about Pacific Academy and highly recommend Pacific Academy to all parents and students !

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
