Renaissance High School Reviews
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.
Renaissance High School is in the Detroit area, primarily Outer Drive territory, and is surrounded by an urban area of multiple businesses. At Renaissance High, not only do they expect high standards from their scholars, but they also expect them to raise beyond those expectations, creating a positive name for their school, and themselves. With this determined mindset, there is no question to why Renaissance is the number one school of all Detroit Schools in its district. Though it is number one, every school has its downfall. Sometimes students drop out or quit because it gets too hard, and some others try and never get there. Though it may get hard for many scholars, Renaissance High holds these expectations to prepare their scholars for the real world, because pressure makes diamonds and the world is full of obstacles to stop you from succeeding towards your goal.
Renaissance provides a great foundation and preparation for college. This is an excellent school that provides the tools needed to be successful in college. From the many organizations and clubs. There is always things happening to keep students engaged in their academics. The administration and students have been very encouraging during my tenure at this school. The relationships I have formed and the networks I have created, will allow me to keep strong ties with many individuals as I make my journey thru college. Honored and privileged to have been selected to attend one of Detroit’s top school.
