School Reviews

Pace Charter School of Hamilton, is a GEM. The Academics are impressive, my Kindergartener was doing Geometry. They have music, art and extracurricular activities which is awsome! The School is small, so all the teachers and students get to know each other which for me is a great feeling. I am sure that my child will not get lost in the "system" like some say. I am extremely pleased with Pace Charter School.
