The PACE School is a Chapter 766, coed, private day school approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education.
Students referred to PACE have not experienced success in a public school setting because of learning disabilities, behavioral and/or emotional difficulties.
The methods for delivering services are educational, vocational and therapeutic.
The curriculum includes English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Reading, History, Health, Physical Education, Woodworking, Foreign Language and Computer Science.
The Pace School curriculum provides experimental and hands-on opportunities for students to learn critical academic subject areas.
Multi-disciplinary projects are often quite effective in engaging students resistant to traditional teaching techniques.
Pace School recognizes the individual needs of a unique school population.
Therefore, Pace School has initiated an outreach program to increase and maintain student attendance and consistent participation in school.
Our bilingual outreach counselor monitors the attendance of each Pace School student.
The counselor contacts students who are absent via telephone or home visits to increase attendance.
Pace School provides pick-ups for students on an as-needed basis.
