Pre-K suspensions. Is this going to be another year of kids being suspended by student support supervisor? Kids forced out by ineffective leaders. K students that cause trouble were removed after harassing parents and kids. All by a bias student support leader. She has no strategies to work with little children. Kids have need seem pulled out of room and yelled at then -- all on camera. Principal keeps kids out of room for ha long time causing them to loose out on education. This school is not being managed well. The leaders only show up at meetings with excuses. Where is the school board? They are probably in the principal pocket like PTA. Parents need to wake - up before their child's early educational year are wasted. Teachers try their best. But like stated by other parents the teachers are out of the classroom too much. Also, too many changes to teaching materials each year. Many activities that take away from class time.

One of the things I have to warn students coming to this school is that the history teacher you are assigned in Junior year till Senior year gives wrong information and avoids answers she is not capable of answering. She has been putting numerous students in the spot by asking them questions that could not be answered. The teacher would continue putting the students in the spot though they do not know the answer. My daughter's friend herself was put in the spot numerous times and went through depression. It's surprising to know that there has been no reports against this teacher for targeting certain students during class till they are depressed. Overall, this teacher is biased as she is most friendly to the students who has the favor of the college bound teacher. In the principal has delayed the time that the senior students who have graduated to receive their money for trips that was not used.

TRCS has very professional teachers, they are using modern ways to teach not memorizing like other schools. When you are there you feel like you e at home everybody treats you as a family member. They have chess, art, drama, sports, cooking, gardening etc.

I love Rensizzle Week at TRCS! It is an awesome experience for children, who get a bit of a break from the usual classroom, but don't stop learning.

My kid is happy at this school. I have found in the last 4 years that the teachers are very attentive to their students and they are caring, which is a rare trait in teaching nowadays. My main concerns are the lack of discipline and a bit of disorganization amongst the administration staff. I have only seen the principal a handful of times in 4 years. This is very disappointing that there seems to be little leadership here. Nevertheless the involvement of the parents goes a long way to improving the way things are handled (as with any organization). I would like to see more leadership, structure and discipline.

My daughter has been at Renaissance since kindergarten and is currently in 3rd grade. Her teachers have been stellar in both their teaching of academics, and good citizenship. While I am deeply appreciative of both, it is the real dedication to the latter that makes this school extra special. I attended the K-6th grade talent show just this past Friday and was blown away by the supportive atmosphere. The highschool kids running the show were great with the little ones; and the participating kids and their friends in the diverse audience encouraged one another and cheered for one another in a way that was really quite heart warming. Nothing like the popularity contest such an event would have been like at my own junior high school. Ya gotta love it.

My son is thriving at this school for the past two years and we absolutely love it. He is currently in first grade he has been blessed to have John(amazing teacher the kind they make movies about)and Daniella (one of the nicest people you will ever meet) for the past two years and loves going to school every day. People at this school are kind and compassionate, everyone is on a first name basis which creates a family atmosphere. I can go on and on about the academics but you can see the test scores and graduation/college admission rates for yourself. I will tell you that when I drop off and pick up my happy child the older children attending the high school and upper grades are very respectful and are not dropping the f word every five minutes, they are helpful with the younger students and great role models, the kind of people you want your child to be surrounded by. We look forward to seeing our children continue to grow in this school. I hope this is helpful I just wanted to tell you something of the things that made an impression on me.

Even though this school may not be the perfect fit for my child (few Sports) it has something that few other schools may have. May son has learned how to be tolerant , compassionate and a leader. My child knows students from grades k-12, and is treated with kindness and respect. As a single child this school gives my child a sense of a large extended family. My son is in 2nd grade and this kindergarten-first grade teacher, John was a master educator. An artist in his field. His current teacher Daniella is so dedicated and committed to real learning . The teachers at this school work above and beyond their work hours. The teachers certainly put the current anti-teacher viewpoints to shame. They CARE about the children as total human beings not just test scores.

We have been very happy to have our son at TRCS for 5 years since kinder. Our son has been learning actively not just to be told what to do by following instructions. To do so, it may take some extra time, but I believe it is a real learning, not just memorizing to raise test score. We strongly appreciate teachers hard work, patience and understanding us being a bilingual family. Submitted by a parent

I applied for my son to enter in ninth grade and was happy to hear that he was accepted, hoping that the small class size would allow for more individualized attention from the teachers to help my son. He's very bright but very active and unfocused. After a few months in this school, I realized this school does not live up to its name. The teachers were unprofessional in their behavior toward him. As for the administration: called and called and only got bounced around. The general staff was very difficult to deal with, except for a very, very, few lot of dedicated teachers. I was greatly dissapointed with this school and completely regret sending my son here.

After hearing and reading about this charter school, I applied for my son to enter kindegarten. After a few months in this school, I realized all the great praise were all straight up lies. The teachers were unproffesional with no experience. My son had was consistently going over the the simple ABC's for the entire year and was not challenged at all. As for the administration, they were very discrimatory and I was not the only parent who was very much concered on what was going on in this school. More importantly if you made a call to any member in the office, the call went unanswered and unreturned. The staff was impossible to deal with and I was immensly dissapointed with this school. I trust and hope that by my review you decide to avoid at all costs the Renassiance Charter School.

I disagree strongly with the apparently disgruntled parent who characterizes the TRCS teachers as harsh and mean and who says they don't offer helpful instruction. My high school son has attended TRCS since kindergarten, and he's been offered a wonderful education by dedicated TRCS teachers all along the way. Many high school teachers work during lunch and stay after school to help students, and I do not concur that students who achieve high test scores are the only ones valued: my son is learning disabled and classified as having ADHD, and his teachers have been instrumental in helping him be a well-rounded person. The TRCS staff who have a background in special education are highly trained in Schools Attuned, in Wilson Reading System, and they are dedicated to helping special ed. students self-advocate. I strongly doubt that my son would have received the same level of help at our zoned school.

TRCS calls itself progressive but it is not. The teachers are quite harsh. The teachers expect students to learn on their own; they don't 'teach'. The students are given homework with little instruction or guidance and then are punished if they do it incorrectly. Homework is rarely graded; my child almost never receives helpful feedback. The school only values kids who achieve high test scores with ease. Children who need help are treated very badly. There are two or three dedicated teachers but many instructors are mean.

My son is currently in the 3rd grade at TRCS. The school is very small and everyone knows one another. The children call the teacher by their first name. The children have the same teacher for two years in a row in the lower grades. My son has learned a lot at TRCS. The teachers are concentrating on the NY State Exams. I would highly recommend this school. There are lots of after school programs ie. Chess, Piano, Drama. Admissions is based on a lottery.

The academic programs are great in this school, but there is definitely a lack of discipline and structure between the adults and the students, which can hurt the children in the long run. Trying to find the balance between the lack of structure and the fact that academically and socially your kids may be doing very well is a hard thing to tackle.

Individual attention for all students. ARTS inlcudes drama, art and music classes for all students. Hetergeneous classes.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
