Thank you for your interest in the Pace Charter School of Hamilton; it shows you care about your child’s education. Pace is an exceedingly special place!

Chartered by the State of New Jersey Department of Education, with the support of Governor Christine Todd-Whitman, Pace Charter School of Hamilton was established for the following reasons:

  • to provide the children of Hamilton Township and the surrounding areas in grades K-5 with an educational opportunity that is exciting in curriculum, innovative in teaching methods, and relevant to real life.
  • to provide parents with educational choices which reflect the belief that a parent has the right to be included and empowered in their child’s educational experiences.
  • to provide Hamilton Township with a public school that is accountable in every respect to the students and parents of the community.

In Spring of 2013 the Department of Education approved the expansion of the school to include 4th and 5th graders. In September of 2013 the Upper school was opened.

When you visit Pace, you will see a school that is firmly committed to remaining a small school with small classes. You will find a faculty that is remarkably talented, committed, and caring.

You will also have an opportunity to get a sense of the school’s rigorous, developmental curriculum and the personal attention that each student receives. At Pace you will experience a warm and caring atmosphere with a strong sense of community.

There is so much to see and to tell. Come to Pace to see why we are the right school for you and your child.
