I am currently a senior at Renaissance high school for the arts. Renaissance is a great school that has a variety of art departments such as music, dance, drawing and painting, digital art, theater, choir, vocal jazz and much much more! The school is filled with diversity and offers a ton of opportunities. My art is music and it has opened doors and opportunities for me as it has for many other students. Renaissance also has amazing coaches and teachers in the art department that provide us with tools and resources to make sure we succeed in both our art and academic classes. My experience has been amazing, I have been involved in so many musical opportunities including musicals and concerts. Renaissance has allowed me to come out of my shell and has helped me become a better musician.

I believe that all Long Beach District High schools are amazing, but I am really seeing lots of change within Renaissance High School for the Arts. It has been quite an experience to participate in so many good events, as well as the student-teacher connection that not many students all over get to have, are found in this school. You want one on one time? Having trouble with grades? Many come here in order to focus on the Arts and improve their areas of Public Speaking, Leadership, and Responsibility. Sadly, many children my age lack the encouragement and education needed to master such simple yet difficult subjects. Thus, Renaissance High has created many clubs, and wants to become open to any student in Long Beach, to teach others what Kindness, Love, Peace, and Friendship is all about, during your career as an aspiring artist!
Renaissance High school for the Arts is a place to find your self without feeling judged or alone. You are free to explore your artistry and education. Parents will never have to worry about their child's well being and safety as respect is one of our most important values. In addition, diversity is extremely prevalent, providing every student with a safe sense of community. The school population averages around 500 students every year. It gives the teachers the ability to get to know each student. helping them out academically and as an artist. However, If I could change certain aspects of the school, I would like to encourage auditions for each program. Students enter at various attitudes and skill level, this prevents higher-level students from improving. Due to it not being a private school, many students come in with a lack of seriousness and it takes a toll on the school culture. Those who take their art pathway seriously are seen to blossom compared to those who do not care.
