PACP has been a major help in my high school career all the way, and its ACT class has helped me reach a score of 35. I attest that the teachers here are the most outstanding teachers, and so are its experienced and creative counselors. Ms. Kelly has been the second mother in my life, helping me since I started going here. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my dream -getting into Harvard University.
