Renaissance High School Reviews
Renaissance High school is a great educational experience as it pushes its students to achieve new heights and feats in education. Along with the fact that Renaissance student body embraces one another making friendships that last outside of high school and possibly further in life. A lot of the teachers at Renaissance truly believe and try to help students become the best version of themselves. As a reward from all the hard work put into the schoolwork, students are usually given great social events to enjoy with friends like no other high school I’ve seen. Though some problems do arise straight from administration themselves as they do not always connect with the student body leading to issues occurring during social events or interfering with classes. Overall the good of the school is over the bad of the school and is a great school to attend.
I came to Renaissance with the belief I would receive the best education, programs, teachers, and more. This schools holds itself on a pedestal of which it does not belong. I have teachers who don’t attend class, don’t put in final grades, and are extremely unorganized. There are a few good teachers, but the bad outweighs the good. I haven’t learned anything this entire year of a curriculum change that forces students to teach themselves. The school itself is extremely unorganized and difficult to contact. I’ve emailed my counselor several times about schedule changes and had to go to a principle to get it changed. My ELA teacher was changed several times and quite a few classes were changed into random unconstructed classes. Everything is done last minute and it’s easily seen that the student body is unhappy. The only reason people stay is for the scholarships come senior year. There’s much more to say, but don’t send your child here.
I love attending Renaissance High school! It's a beautiful campus, the teachers are polite and helpful and the students are very friendly. The workload of a Renaissance student is rigorous but it is beneficial to future college experience and readiness. I would improve the number of teachers so class sizes could be a little smaller and a wider variety of courses.
