I love Renaissance Arts Academy. My child has violin lessons every day---taught by a professional violinist. He has a reason to go to school every day and Not one teacher will let him get behind. He has tutoring available in Latin, in math, and science whenever he needs it. When assignments are missing teachers let you know instead of the, 'well he missed the due date' attitude. My husband and I feel as though the whole school cares about each student doing well.

At first I was surprised at the large room. I thought, 'how can everyone work in here?' But now I couldn't imagine being cooped up in a small classroom. The students and teachers all work together and we're able t No accomplish amazing things, like reading all of Dante's Inferno, and Plato's Symposium. Everyone helps each other in all of the academics because we're all studying the same things. I can ask any of the older students to help me with Latin or Physics. I've never been in a school where the older students cared about how the little kids did. The arts classes are awesome. I have dance four days a week and percussion on Fridays. The dance teachers are really serious and we are able to perform originally choreographed pieces at recitals. RenArts isn't for anyone who doesn't want to work hard, if you do it's great.

This school is for those who sleep during classes. The school is one big room, no walls in between classes, just tables and chairs. Generally we sit during every class and read books, with little or no instruction at all. There is no outside room except for a very small parking lot outside. The idea here of education is sit down and read books. Sometimes there are very limited seats and those who misbehave are sent to a carpet outside of the school, which really is a punishment because it smells so bad. The students here are confined like thirty rats in one small cage which are punished if they move. When working on performances, the entire school is confined to a giant study period, sometimes with one study sheet for several weeks, Sudoku, or absolutely nothing, just expected to sit there if you are not performing. I'm out of space...

Not for everyone but if your child is even a little self motivated then you can expect an education on par with the best private schools. The school is still young and not without its growing pains but after only 4 years it ranks as the top LAUSD middle school. No sports, but also very little homework so students are encouraged to participate in AYSO, Little League or other seperate sports programs.

I was not happy with this school, overall. The structure of the open areas is fine. But constant notetaken and sitting down all day with limited movement anywhere in the school. No eating areas, you eat cold food or order from a menu and a restaurant where the school staff provides. The grading at the school is very confusing and when you ask the teacher to be more explicit the response is talk to your child and let me know what you don't understand about the lesson or the grades.

I was not happy with this school as a parent, overall. The good points were an emphasis on the classics, but that also became such a narrow focus in my view. The math instruction was great, but my daughter seemed bogged down with endless notetaking in other classes. She loved her theater teachers, but the chance to see her work was limited. Also, the lack of any outside play area or eating area became too stifling in my view, and don't get me started on the administration.

I attended Renarts for 7th and 8th grade. I think, in the beginning, I was sort of brainwashed into liking it because all the parents were saying that they would have loved to go to a school like Renarts when they were younger. They dont have enough structure, and they dont teach the subjects that students are required to learn. They also dont have graduations.

When I first began this school, It was great.The old teachers were so much better then most of the current teachers. I would not recommend this school.And also, the teacher try to bully their students as a way of dicipline.

Renaissance Arts Academy is the only public school we've found in Los Angeles that has given our child a place to seriously study music and learn from teachers who are experts in their subjects. The class size is small--10-15 students, and the atmosphere is calm and safe. The classes are focused and rowdy or rude behavior is not allowed. The school provides monthly field trips to music and theater performances and brings professional performers in for live performances nearly every other week. There are 2 after-school orchestras, an amazing chorus and 2 dance companies. This has been the perfect school for my daughter.

Renaissance Arts works for kids who take their performing arts and studying the classics seriously. The academics are wonderful. The teachers tend to be fair and very knowledgeable in their fields. The arts program is excellent, particularly the cello teacher, Maggie. As for the lack of extracurricular activities, at every school there is a compromise, I'm willing to provide extracurricular for my child so that he can have an outstanding academic education. The worse thing about Renarts is the lack of consistency in discipline. Students are treated differently, but not in a constructive way. Punishments seem random and emotion-driven at times, and other times simply petty. All that said though, I still think Renarts has the best middle school around. Those students who recoil at the thought of reading, or practicing their instruments should look elsewhere. For those who do like that type of challenge, it works exceptionally well.

We were excited about Renaissance Arts Academy in Los Angeles, CA, and read their philosophy with enthusiasm, but found it instead to be a very specifically designed school where students are expected to sit for long periods of time in total silence taking notes every day. Disciline for those who do not comply is harsh and 'over-the-top.' Notetaking is the centerpiece of the curriculum, and students take notes all day. This school is too strict and borders on 'meanness.' This is my personal observation.

Performing arts school, goes from grades 6-12. The kids take karate, ballet, percussion, voice, and one specialty, such as violin, viola, cello, voice, or drama. Their instructors are top in their field; for example, the instrument instructors have experience or are in well-known professional orchestras or symphonies. Their facility moved from Merton to Colorado Blvd in September 2004, as they renovated an old dept store to suit their needs with music rooms, ballet and karate studio, etc. They also have a library/computer lab up above the main rooms as a loft. It's a small school, currently with about 260 students. They don't have traditional sports. It is hard for kids to get into serious trouble at this school because there is nowhere for them to hide, do drugs, etc. My kids love: no homework! (but long schoolday)

This is a place for children to develop in academic, social awareness, and musical talent. They are exposed to philosophy and science allowing them to become leaders of the Future. Parent participation is welcomed and acknowledged on and off campus. These students are intelligent and curious and allowed to explore into their imaginations when in the classroom. The students are offered career and college counselors who help guide them into their future tomorrow. It shall be an experience that will last them a lifetime.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
