Stories from Pace Leon

Paige's and Asia's Stories

“When I first started here, I did not want to come. I was 14 years old in the 6th grade, but when I came here the teachers helped me work on my grades. My counselor also helped me so much because I was having trouble at home and getting to school. The staff here are helpful and really care. They made me realize that If I just wake up and come in, I already completed something.” - Asia, 16

“I came to Pace, and it was my first time in middle school. I was scared because I came from home school, but I felt comfortable being with my sister. I was not doing well academically, and was nervous about the work, but now I love Pace. My teachers and counselors help me even when I have my tough times at home and allow me to make up my work.” - Paige, 15
