I am a student at Renaissance school. I just stepped into this school as a 6th grader. Ms.Wood, Mr.Scanlan-Emigh, Mrs.Huttlinger, Ms.Adel, and all the others that I know are awesome teachers that give us the strictness and education that us students need. "Our school s mission is to provide a rigorous academic program for college-bound students in a small, personalized setting that impels and supports students to use their minds well, to care for themselves and others, and to rise to the challenges and duties of citizenship." This is our mission that we students learn, love, and always care about.My proud name at Renaissance is QUYEN NGUYEN

The post written Dec 5, 2008 is pathetic and I highly doubt that it was written by a parent. Unfortunately, their poor rating is bring down the total score of an exceptional school. The teachers are phenomenal and the curriculum is well structured and challenging. The teachers really care and push the students to excel. Most classes are challenging in structure because they concentrate on college prep level curriculum and some classes are taught at a higher level than what other public schools in Springfield are being taught. The 'parent' who wrote the review previously mentioned clearly does not know a thing about this school. My daughter is in her third year there and I am constantly amazed at the level of commitment the teachers have in an age where Springfield schools are shedding qualified teachers at a terrifying rate.

This school is great! The teachers are awesome and actually care about us. They're really committed to getting us all into college, and a lot of them are really inspiring.

This school is very diffrent from other schools that are in our area. We teach on the core principles of actually learning the information over just grazing over subject matter. The teachers are great in terms of advising and understanding. They want the students to learn. On any given day some teachers work until seven getting done. I know that this dedication.

As a founding student of The Springfield Renaissance School and a member School Governing Board (student rep.) I can tell you that Renaissance is by far the best school in Springfield. Started in 2006 on a grant from the BIll and Milenda Gates foundation and Expeditionary Learning School Renaissance is a 6-12 college bound EL public school. The school opened its door to the 6th and 9th graders and has grown since to 6-11 and next years will be graduating its first class. Renaissance focuses on each student as an individual and has kept that promise even when it has grown to 600 students. Each grade has an expedition for each trimester that benefits the greater springfield and national community. The teachers are the most dedicated you will find, each is of the best quality having undergone extensive EL training. If you are moving to Springfield Renaissance should your #1 choice.

Having been at Renaissance since its founding, i know it very well and find it to be an excellent school, for educational purposes and for the fact that our school shares a real community and we care about eachother. We have many things that can't be found anywhere else in Springfield, like our ninth grade outward bound trips and small, personalized crews.

I would give the Springfield Renaissance School an 8.5 on all counts. This innovative school focuses on each student's individual learning style and encourages students to work in a manner that emphasizes their strengths. The interdisciplinary approach to education is quite refreshing and the teachers are truly dedicated and caring.
