Regarding the recent news story “PACE appeals charter denial”: PACE Academy changed the way I learn forever.
I arrived at PACE Academy in 2009 after I was really struggling and getting bullied at East Chapel Hill High School. My mother suggested that I start going to PACE Academy because she knew that PACE would help me through school. Once I started to get more situated at PACE, I started to become more aware of how bad my learning disabilities were, and PACE was able to help me through the tough times.
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro area needs a school like PACE. What will happen to the future or current students of PACE Academy? Where will they go? Either they will have to go to a public school in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro district or find another school that is miles away.
I hope that PACE can renew its charter and stay around a while.
