Renaissance Arts Academy's philosophy is that all students can succeed. All of the teachers work in a way that allows for all students to keep learning and developing no matter how long it takes for them to make the progress they need to. They offer tutoring before school and after school, and it's taught by the teachers! They are interested in the skills and interests that students bring. Several projects have started as a result of student interest. They have build a robot from scratch, programmed web pages, and the shows that these students create are amazing. The shows also include almost everyone. There is a commitment here to helping students achieve excellence that is difficult to find. And, because students are given the time they need to move forward, they all do get to a place of success.

I went to school there for Junior High and right away I found myself not really learning. I just went with the flow and just stuck around. But once I hit 8th grade I finally found out why i was doing okay at this school , because I was a "Favorite". Once I found a highschool with better opportunities for me and what I wanted to major in in college, and I told the director she immediately treated me different. There is a lot of favortism at this school. And sure they have good gradings, and rates and a lot of they kids end up going to really food universities but its only because they have a grading scale of only A's and F's, and of course everyone gets A's therefore giving the child a 4.0 GPA. Also when I went to another High school and I took the placement test for math class, I scored very low, and I'm the only one how has gone to others schools and scored very low, it goes to show that they are not teaching right. And some classes that I am taking at the moment, I'm lacking a little bit of background that I should I learned in middle school but at RenArts they didn't teach for example history. I struggled so much in History. Its not a very good school.

My child has special needs. There has never, ever, been a school where he has been treated as bright, capable, and "a pleasure." The teachers make sure that he can succeed.

This school has been an amazing experience for my daughter. She is in her second year and I have seen her grow so much at this school. She is totally engaged academically and love's the small school environment. It is definitely not a school for everyone but it has been a wonderful experience for my daughter.

This is the first school that ever saw my child for who he is. The teachers "advisors" actually took the time to get to know that my child was intelligent and caring. They did not just treat my child like someone who is not as "smart" as other students.

First, it is small. Only 350 students. It means that kids don't get lost. Second, they work together. It's more about helping each other succeed than being the best. I like it most for those reasons.

This school is amazing!! My son is doing so much better and has a much better understanding of mathematical concepts. I wish they had a school like this when I was a child! I recommend this school to any parent who is tired with the old conventional way of teaching and is open to new innovative ideas!!

This is the second year at Ren Arts for both of my daughters they both love it! I have watched them grow so much in these two years. My youngest has really come along way academically and I give credit to her advisors, especially Sid who she really enjoys working with. I am a single struggling mother who is so thankful to Ren Arts for providing access to the arts (dance and Viola) it takes a village! The schools dedication to the students makes all the difference. Thank you Ren Arts!

Don't know where my daughter would be if it weren't for this school. She has blossomed into an amazing dancer, and her academics have never been better. The advisors are extremely helpful and the directors are caring and genuinely concerned about every scholar that attends their school. I love RenArts. I only wish there were more schools like Renarts.
