Profile Completeness

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

An excellent alternative to traditional schools or pure home schooling, the Renton School District program allows for a broad range of subjects to be taught in a very small and personalized setting. The sense of community and family fostered at the school is second to none and creates a welcoming learning environment for students just starting their scholastic journeys. No where else will you find Latin, Science, cooking and poetry for young students with out spendy private schools. The one thing one needs to know is other than helping your child grow, parents are expected to be actively involved in their child's education. This is not a drop them off and forget about them school - the winning combinations is the fact that students, teachers and parents are all in the loop. I can't say enough great things about this school. I actually travel from out of district after a recent move to allow my daughter to attend.

This school is the answer for the involved parent of a child who isn't thriving in the large school setting. My child, who was intellectually advanced, but with special needs, attended the HOME Program for high school. Teachers were caring, gave individualized attention, and worked closely with parents. The college-bound can bridge seamlessly to the Running Start program to complete high school at community college. I can't say enough about the supportiveness of all the staff, and a few teachers who were academically outstanding. K-8 enrichment classes are available for home schoolers, also individual music instruction. Students are respectful of each other and the teachers. Be forewarned: parents MUST be involved, and students should be prepared to miss out on some of the social activities of the larger schools.

This is the best kept secret in the Renton School District! The school provides rigorous high school courses including algebra, language arts, and science taught by credentialed and dedicated teachers within a caring and respectful environment. Courses not offered on site may be taken through an online learning program, at a Renton high school or at a community college through the Running Start program.
