I'm a sixth grader at New Renaissance middle it is very nice,safe enviroment,but very very strict.They have just made this rule that students have to have escorts to go to any location.But Im not going to focus on the negativity.NRMS also has alot of extra-cirricular classes,and the school is very organized.The school does'nt have much fights,but sometimes.The students does get ponished if they do.To me personally if I could grade the school from 1-10,I would probably be say(truly) a 6.Only because of how the teachers are truly dedicated to their job,how the student body is organized,and how people is nice and kind(depending on who your child is hanging around).
Wonderful Learning Enviornment. Dynamic Teachers. Exceptional leadership in the Principal
Not impressed by the 'culture' incubating in the school. Kids need to be taught in no uncertain way that figting and intimidating another student is just not the way to solve their issues.
I would not recommend this school to no one! The administration has a care free attitude. They don't embrace the parents who take great concern in their childs progress. They don't understand the transistion from elementary to middle school. It appears that many of the teachers are there for a pay check. No matter how lousy they are!
I am a 7th grader at New Renaissance and I think that the school is well ok , but the behavior of the students is kinda chaotic! The teachers are good (most) but i wouldn't really recomend this school to anyone! But things might just turn ariund with our new principal!
NRMS is the greatest school of broward county! amazing teachers that know how to teach well and are better than the high school teachers now that i have! :0 i recommend it! you'll love it
I am in 7th grade at new renaissance middle I think that our school has a great learning enviornment and there are also less fights now !
I am a 7th grader in the school and I say the school teaches us well. Although they have behavior issues, they teach us what we need to know in a fun way. I also would like to add that many of my friends say they can't comprehend what the teachers teach us, but it is just that they don't try hard enough. Now they get straight A's.
I personally think that this school has some control over the students ..but not all. personally i think the administrators take no action into the learning process and they also do not reward theyre students predominatly the 8 graders. the extra cirriculars are good ,, considering that i am a cheerleader and i am in aspira, but i say that our principal is in her own world and shows no leadership
This school exibits excellence and teaches my child to have the dignity and pride that a youngster should have in order to be a success...
My children do not comprehend any of the things they are supposed to be learning in school i feel very disappointed that ir has to be that way because i was told it was an excellent school. The security is very low on protection of the students my child has gotten into altercations and no action was taken. I really recommand that you do not send your children there......
My child attends this school and I think that i has an excellent academic program!There are tons of new ways to learn,for example there is a chess club available to help in math. There are also many extracurriclar activities such as;step, track and field, volley ball, and jazz band which my child is a part of.The parents involvemant is very high ,many parents are volenteers on field trips, school funtions,and etc. So I am proud to say my child attends this marvalous school.t
Well I'm a student at New Renaissance and personally we have become more organized. I am in the gifted program and it is quite challenging. I must admit that the administration is very difficult when it comes to communication. As far as diversity is concerned we are predominately a black school and nothing is wrong with it. Some parents always argue that their child is inattentive in class but its their child's fault because if their child really wanted to learn they would have some type of concern. So as far as I know, I don't believe anyone should complain about how this school is running because its mainly the students fault. Our school is an A school and 5 star school based on how we run things. As far as behavior is concerned it has nothing to do with administration.
Academically, this school is aces. This is my daughters third year in the schools gifted program, and it is indeed challenging. Safety has very much improved over the past year, I think it helped to get that last batch of troublemakers out of the school. They do need more activities, which I am sure will happen once the field is completed next to the school. I MUST say that communication is the poorest I've ever come across. They NEVER send anything home in writing. And in most cases, the students find out about events the same day over the morning announcements, leaving the parents completely out of the loop for things like Honor Roll Assemblies or FCAT Awards Ceremonies, which I know I would like to be able to attend.
My son is in the gifted program, the teachers are good , he always has homework. Teacher and parent conferences, you can sschedule one but since they are only on thursdays it might take two months until you get one, the best way is to send the teachers a note and have them sign itas prove that they received it, then they will call you. I agree that the communication from school is terrible, they never send any newsletters, everything is by mouth, and sometimes kids forget to give you the information on time.There is an open house at the beggining of the year and thats it, nothing else. There are no extracurricular activities and the diversity is very low so it is hard for my son to blend in. The administrative staff is terrible,they are not equal with their treatment. I will start looking for a school reassignment.
This school first appears to be good. It is not! There is way too much violence in this school. They claim to be a zero-tolerance school, they are not...by far! They tolerate way too much for my liking! The programs are OK. The comunication from school to parent is horrible. They send nothing in writing. Everything is done by word of mouth from the announcement to the child to the parents....imagine the accuracy in that. Overall I am extremely displeased with the school. They are really bad at returning calls. Also the teachers dress worse than the kids. They should put uniforms on the teachers! If you ever send your child to make an incident report to report bullying or threats, make sure they get a copy back stamped by the office. They lose way too much paperwork!
This school has problems. Diversity is talked about, but it depends on who you are. I would never send my child to this school. If this is the best, they need to be worried.
The quality of academic programs was excelent. they have tutors to ensure you undrstand the class.Music and art and sports is very available to the the students and paretns are always envoled in them. they are also involed in other activities like concerts for choir and cheerleaders bake sales and so forth. The school was very helpful to make sure that you were involed academincally and extracurricularly.
My childs experience in this school has been am very poor one. He never brought homework home, was not challenged at all intellectually. Peer pressure was extremely high, discouraging kids from attending school, or performing at all in this majority black school. Kids were afraid to go to school. Every day there were fights, and serious social issues at this school. No P.E. program for all the students. Little or none extra-curricular activity for all students.
