School Reviews

My son Danny never loved to go to school since he was young. But Pacific Academy''s principal and teachers have discovered his music talent and inspired him. Dany has become more confident, motivated, and love school. I didn''t expect Danny could go to college. Thanks to Pacific Academy that Danny got into UC Davis.

We are so grateful to have found Pacific Academy. Our son receives such personal attention from teachers and administrators, the teachers are great and even the students like them! Our son is getting an excellent education, it's a creative environment AND he is being supported and encouraged by the staff. I highly recommend this school!
