Pace Brantley School

  • VISION: Pace Brantley School values the worth and dignity of every individual with learning disabilities as we prepare our students for success. Pace Brantley School sits on nine acres of picturesque wooded land. Over the past 35 years it has grown from one small building to 7 buildings, basketball courts, Leadership Park, baseball and soccer fields. It truly is amazing how one dream can make such an impact of the lives of so many students. Mrs. Mary E. Dunn`s legacy will forever live on in the faces of so many students for years to come. Our Philosophy...Pace Brantley School believes that learning disabilities should carry no stigma: That if children are treated with dignity and respect they will feel positive about themselves;
  • That once they feel positive about themselves they will find that they can be more successful;
  • That with individual help and freedom from pressure, children can learn;
  • That some children with learning disabilities can return to the traditional classroom;
  • That some children whose problems are more complex may need special help indefinitely, but all can learn.

School Reviews

My name is cody ball kid I had a learning disabilitie and the founder mrs dunn reviewed my case. She felt that there my not be much help could do for me. So mrs dunn beleived in me and gave me a trial basis by the end of the school year she was amazed of how well I was doing. 20 plus years later and I have never forgotten pace school and forgot about the kindness of mrs dunn and she my not be with us anymore but she continues teaching cause she started something that has a life of its own.
