    My son graduated from Pace in 2012 and is now in his 2nd year of college and doing very well. He has kept the communication going with his old teachers at Pace and visits the school everytine he comes home from college.

    I am a parent of a senior at this school. Ms son loves this school! The staff and safety agents in the building are so respectful and genuinely caring. This was our first choice school and we are so pleased to have had such an awesome opportunity to see our child grow into an young adult. We will surely miss PACE and all that it offers !

    I've met some of the most dedicated nicest caring teachers here. I realized how much I miss PACE now that I've graduated. I'm currently attending an prestigious liberal arts college.

    It's the place where teacher and student create a bond that is beyond verbal description. We learn and grow from the years that we've spent together and those are the years that made my high school experience much more than just passing the regents and getting into suitable college. Teachers are devoted to help their student to become not only a better learner but one who will never fail to thrive for their goals. The four years that I've spent in those halls and classrooms cannot simply be denoted as struggles but a rite of passage for many teenagers. Everyday I felt loved and cared for. I know this school will never let me down education wise and specially as a growing young adult. There are just endless words that I can use to describe my thankfulness for Pace but bottom line is it's my favorite school.

    It provides that one on one attention that most New York City schools do not give and WOW! What an amazing staff and principal! There was education beyond the classroom and so many life lessons are taught by the good people of the school!

    The teachers genuinely care about me I really love going to class every day because my teachers gave me a new inspiration to learn. Plus my fellow students were so intelligent and so spirited that out of class had the same impact on me. Overall my time at Pace High School has been filled with great friends higher learning and most importantly character building.

    im a freashmen at pace and i think this school is fair enough. Almost all of the students know each other and help each other. Also there is not really a Clique situation. You can be and hang out with anybody you want to. Also as a freashmen i feel welcomed and happy that i got into a school that is the second best in Nyc the first being Stuyvesant.

    My child began attending Pace HS when the school was only in its 2nd year of operation. At first it lacked resources to give the extra classes curricular activities or other educational support which some students required. They still need to incorporate more music arts and sports program to make their school well rounded. The following year the school had more to offer and excelled in making sure each student is prepared early to take all regents. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or challenged students. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name and is a great example of a leader. Pace really tries to bring out the best in the students by giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go forward in their career
