As an alum, Pace prepared me well for college. When there, due to it's size and caring faculty, I was able to participate in a broad range of sports, drama, and activities. This ability encourages students and faculty to be well-rounded and educated in more than the traditional classroom setting. The small class sizes enabled even the timid students to be involved in discussions and all students to grasp the most challenging concepts presented. Overall, a fantastic school, I do and will continue to recommend it to many!

This schools is horrible and has not changed. Art programs suck even though they claim to have the one of the best in the Southeast. bull. They say they have strong connection's with London's RADA. complete bull. They say their one of the top private schools in the nation. absolute BULL BULL BULL. Very low SATs compared to fellow Atlanta private schools like Westminster. The art director can't direct a play for anything. The headmaster's rude and apparently no women parents here work so the school expects them to help out 24/7, and get angry with me that I have a career. Very homophobic student body who all like to hate and bully, and a bad athletics program. Not enough AP exams and bad college matriculation. Included in their top ten schools for 04-06? Virginia, Auburn, Southern Methodist, Florida State, Kentucky, and Washington and Lee. No lie. The only remotely good schools in the top ten were Duke, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt. Very low Ivy matriculation. The Upper School is overcrowded. In the kindergarten, their are 40-50 kids. in the 12th grade their is nearly 100 kids. Classes get more crowded as the grades go on, jumping in the Lower School at approx. 12 to approx. 20 in the Upper School. Just a horrible school.

As a current student, the school website does NOT state true facts. If the school's facts were true, then why would so many people be on here trying to tell people the truth? Pace's college advising program isn't very good. It will be tough to get accepted to Cornell for me at this school with their low AP class selections. The school academics are fairly easy and not as challenging as the school website boasts. The school is actually cheap compared to East Coast schools that cost 30-40 grand a year. As a current student with a different sexuality then others, it is very tough to fit in. There is no Gay/Straight Alliance or diversity club, so I can't meet students who support LGBT rights, so i'm forced to mingle with homophobs (headmaster puts a strong emphasis on "family values" with his four hundred children, and probably to him homosexuals are sinners and non-family-like, and yes, this school puts a very strong emphasis on the conservative judeo-christian beliefs (stated on their old website, and this is actually the only true fact on there). One of my classes has just over twenty students and almost all of classes are large with almost 20 students. I really can't stand this school, it academics, or homophobs, let alone the faculty who can be very stiff and tough to approach.

I'm sure the school is great but I'm rating the summer camp. My daughter loved it b/c there were so many fun things to do. The staff is WONDERFUL and the kids are enthusiastic to start the day. Awards were given out for special accomplishments and lots of treats were passed out daily. Lots to do - tennis, swimming, drama, computer, lunch (included)!! Prices were a little high but it was worth it based on the quality received. She'll be enrolled next summer!

I went to Pace and was very well prepared for college. The transition to Emory was a breeze after all the college-prep and AP classes that Pace offered. Pace is a small school and the clique of students who have been there since early childhood is very strong, but if you get involved in activites, you can find your place. The facilities are terrific.

I graduated from Pace several years back. I only wish that they had all of the newer buildings and the facilities back then. The occasional uniform is unattractive, but the surronding gardens make for a beautiful learning environment.
