PACE-Brantley Hall School is a private school in Longwood, Florida specializing in teaching students with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, Asperger syndrome, and other learning disabilities.
PACE-Brantley Hall School was founded in 1972 by Mary E. Dunn, an advocate in assisting the learning of students with disabilities. At first, the school had seven students and two teachers, and it met in a church on weekdays. However, a piece of land was purchased by the founder's son, Dr. Richard Dunn. Since then, the school has grown to a wooded, 8-acre (32,000 m2) campus with eight buildings.
Student Admissions and Programs
The school enrolls students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Tuition fees for elementary and middle school students is $13,385, and for high school, $13,885. Students can participate in physical education programs in which they learn about and play sports including basketball, baseball, softball, dodgeball, kickball, field hockey, as well as other sports. The school has two fully enhanced playgrounds for elementary school and middle school students. Also, students can participate in a wide range of after-school activities such as intramural sports, drama classes, music lessons, and clubs.
PACE-Brantley Hall School can assist students with particular learning disabilities with Wilson reading, Orton-Gillingham, Fast ForWord, and other programs, including youth leadership, speech therapy, and occupational therapy.
