Pace High School's Full Profile



Pace High School says

The PACE High School mission is to create a college-oriented, student-centered environment with high expectations for every student. The goal for every individual at PACE is to create a resume of quality educational experiences which will prepare them for success in college and beyond. Central to our role as a small high school is that every student is known well through our Advisory program and is appreciated for his/her unique talents and contributions to our learning community. Our curriculum and practices are tailored to the individual needs of our students, enabling all students to reach the ambitious goals set for them. Working in close collaboration with Pace University's School of Education, our school shares the extensive resources of the university, with significant access to classes, libraries, computer labs and recreational facilities.
