It's a great school to be at. Your children will learn a lot in this school. Excellent staffs and curriculum. I'm currently a student and I never saw a fight in this school.

Renton is a great school ! Disregard the review below me. My child learned alot here. This is a much better school then the school some of her friends are attending (Rainier Beach and Cleveland). Limbergh is better then Renton I have to admit and Garfield is an outstanding school (but very hard to get in). Any way, Renton is still a great school. If your student has an acadenic drive, they will be successful here.

Renton is a great school for your kid to make friends and learn absolutely nothing. The students all come from Dimmit Middle School with little or no skills. The teachers try to maintain high standards, and some students strive to meet the standards. The others provide a constant distraction in order to keep the focus off of their inability to comprehend what is going on. Ultimately it compromises the classroom environment and takes away the ability of many students to achieve all that they can. This school has a culture where failure is mainstream. Until Renton manages to attack this culture and construct one in which it is the norm to achieve, it will be a place where your child's education will be compromised. The current Principal is working to change this culture, but he is in his first year. If he sticks it out he will probably be successful.

Great School, old Principle Sucks but new Interim Principle is awesome and should stay. Very Diverse school among the district unlike Lindbergh and Hazen which is mostly white students and white teachers and white counselors and white security guards. Great 'Normal' basketball program, should be number 1 in state for 2007-2008 but always fall short to the illicitly recruited private high schools in the greater Seattle.
