This is the best school i ever went too!!! I hear some other reviews that are not true like "there are rats running around the school" or "theres to many christians" or "too much drugs" but thats not really true. First of all, rats running around? Okay, that was the worst lie i ever heard pace is the cleanest school ever. To many christians? Yeah, sorry were a people who like are religion and go to our church, i dont even know how you can complain about somthing that isn't even aloud in school anyway. And the drugs? Well, every school has drugs, but schools up north and west are worse. The only reason you hear about drugs hear is because the staff actually catches kids when they have them, unlike the majority of other schools.

As a current student some of these reviews are apalling. Drgs- just as much as any high school. Teacher quality- very good, unless you happen to get the occasional lazy teacher. The two main problems are the hugely Christian bias and the clique-ish attitude of students. You rarley see students interact with others who differ in opinions. Sports are also a VERY big impact on student life, especially football (like most high schools) Socially the school is on the lesser side but academics are very well done.

Pace High School is the best School I have ever attended. It is better than some of the private schools I have even gone to! There isn't a day where I don't have fun! The teachers are very understanding and will work with you on whatever you need help with. Unlike what the person below be posted(P.S., go back to where you're from if you do not like Pace), it is a very clean environment. No rats, whatsoever. As for being overrun with drugs, I have never seen one type of drug on that campus before, and trust me, I know more than 80% of the student body. I am very happy with my time I have spent there.

We moved here a little over a year ago from a very highly rated school. We are very unhappy with Pace High. They have very few extracurricular activities outside of sports. The school is overrun with drugs and there doesn't seem that there is anything to do in town to keep the kids busy. The school has a coffee shop but didn't have a school library part of last school year. The gym is the smallest school gym I have ever seen and we came from a fairly small town. It is filthy and I was afraid to sit down. My son said you can sometimes hear rats running in the ceiling during classes. Overall, not a good experience. We are trying looking to relocate to get our children out of this school system.

I am a former student. This school had some great teachers; however, the administration crossed the line several times. They were not very open to beliefs other than Christian.

Pace High School is a school that has a great educational program, fabulous teachers and administrators and has maintained the values and morals that many schools and parts of the country have completely dismissed. I definitely think this school is deserving of America's Favorite School!

The administration has high expectations of discipline, academics, with the faculty, staff displaying strong moral character. I have three children that all graduated from Pace. They have been very successful in college. Two of the three have post-graduate degrees. The last one is working on his BS and plans to go further.

I am so impressed with this school. They have high expectations for the children and the administration and teachers are awesome role models for the kids as a whole. They are an All- American wonderful school- one of the few that still values what our country was founded on.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the school!! I love the fact that it gives off a christian persona....and I hope it always stays this way! For those of you who do not agree with this and the way the administration believe....there are other schools to choose from...go somewhere else!! As for me and my house, school, county....we will serve the LORD!!

The school is great as far as academics & teachers go, however the administration needs serious revising. It's a public school and the administration acts as if it's a private christian school in many occurences. Other than the ridiculous admin. the school is awesome :)

Academic wise the school is great. They offer a lot to the students to grow and enrich themselves. However, there is a huge religious undertone that tends to be a bit over the line. It comes through in some of the classes and the way the teachers teach. Shouldn't be brought to the schools. Also, if you are at all 'different' and express yourself, you will have problems. Conformitty is their standard. Like the academics, do not like the administration.

I graduated from Pace High in 1980 and since have had 3 students graduate and currently have a 10th grader there. Pace has some of the highest FCAT scores in the state! They have an excellent sports program too! Great leadership!

Pace High School at best is average. There is a very strong religious undertone and at times crosses the line. Not being from this area and here only due to military transfer we found the structure and the cirriculum to be far below and other state we've been in. Yes, you'll do great if you play sports, or know someone who knows someone.

Id have to say this is an outstanding school. My dad is in the military so I've been to a few schools and this is by far the best. Great sports and NJROTC, their NJROTC unit was best in the world in 2003, and their sports teams have won way to many state championships to count. Great academics, challenging and helps a lot. I highly recommend going to this school. 6 star definitely.

I was a student at Pace High School all four years and it's an absolutely wonderful place to be. I got involved in Cheerleading in 9th grade and remained in it through high school. I had some really great teachers and coaches throughout my 4 years there who really cared about me as a person, not just some student. The best teacher I ever had to this day was Coach Greg Gill, who taught my Integrated Science Honors class. I had him as a freshman, and would go visit him even as a senior (him continuing to know me by my first and last name the whole time). It's a typical small-town school in the bible belt. Students party together on saturday nights and go to church on sunday mornings. It's a very cliquish school til our last year when everybody gets close. It's not good for those who transfer in

Pace may seem great from the outside, but from the inside you see the gaps where all that shine has simply ebbed off. Sports appear to be top priority in this high school, and parents are involved in these sports. Academically, however, that is another story completely; though that is not to say that the students do badly.

PHS is a good school overall. It has great kids and great teachers for the most part. Although with the large class sizes your child could be falling through the cracks and you don't know until it's too late. Teacher-parent communication is nearly non-existent. You must track down the teacher once you see a problem. Of course, then it is too late.

I absolutely hate the block system; you miss one class and that's equal to a week of school. I feel compelled to send my child to school sick just so she won't miss anything. The classes are way to long and my child says half the time they just sit there. It's just to benefit the teachers not the students.

Pace High School is, overall, a very fine school. It is reasonably strong academically, though some students may not feel academically challenged. If your child plays sports, you are in luck, as PHS has a very good sports program for both boys and girls. The teachers and staff are generally very caring and responsive. A few things to know: PHS has block scheduling (4 classes a day, at 1 1/2 hours each). The kids like it, though it can be difficult for students who transfer to or from another school in the middle of the academic year. The school has very few problems with student discipline (I don't worry about my two kids when they are at school). There is a strong Christian presence in the school (students and teachers), which we really like. The kids can be clique-ish--it helps to get active in clubs or sports. My rating: 4 stars.

I think Pace High School offers students the opportunity to earn a great education. My children have been involved in the honors classes at Pace and have done well in them. The teachers have done a good job at teaching the material necessary to perform well in class and on the ACT and SAT exams. My oldest son graduated in 2002 and was well prepared for college. I think Pace very much deserved the 'A' they received from the State.
