This school is a part of me. Much like the person who posted before me, I attribute much of who I am today to the Crater Renaissance Academy. The teachers have your back, and are all just trying to make the world a better place. It's a cool thing to be a part of.

This school has shaped who I am and who I will become. I have spent the last four years years and will be graduating in May. I am well proposed for college and excited for the adventure that lies ahead. I think the teachers that I have had at Renaissance for this. The sense of community is amazing. Everybody truly cares about one another. I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to attend this school.

Crater Renaissance Academy is exceptional. My daughter has attended the last 3 years and will be a senior in the Fall. She is well-prepared academically and has been able to take college courses concurrently with her high school schedule. She is involved in sports, leadership, world travels, and volunteer activities. Most of all, this school excels in creating a positive school culture. She has been trained in anti-bullying techniques and social equity issues. She has a diverse group of friends who have a variety of interests. My daughter has developed into a caring and conscientious student because of this school.

My son attends Renaissance Academy and is absolutely thriving there. He loves his school and his teachers and looks forward to going to school every day. I am so impressed with how much he has grown during his time there. He has always wanted to be challenged in his classes and to be a part of a lot of activities and both of those have been fulfilled. He has taken advantage of opportunities presented to him to become a leader and is already well prepared for college and he is loving the journey.

The academic program is lacking. It's too easy, even if you take accelerated classes. If you know about the four schools, many of the RA teaches tend to speak ill of the teachers in the other schools. I'm currently a freshman at RA and came in expecting a really great school. I've been extremely disappointed in how low the expectations are for the students. I do love one or two of my classes, but they're not enough to make up for the school in general. I'm planning on moving to CAHPS for next year.

I am currently a senior at Renaissance Academy. My graduating class is the first class to have gone through Renaissance all four years since the school's start. The education I have recieved over the four years has been nothing but exceptional. The teachers genuinely care about each and every student, build relationships with their students, and are more than willing to help each student reach their full potential. We, the students, recognize the teachers dedication, and together we have built a supportive, close-knit community within our school. As a senior getting ready to move on to college, I feel that Renaissance has really helped me prepare for the next stage of my education. I am sad to be leaving the wonderful staff of Renaissance, but I know that they will always be there for support if I ever need it.

The teachers in this school really care about the students that they teach. You're not just another face in the classroom, you're a person, and it's really important to have people that care about you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
