the teachers care about the students a ton. although its small and there arnt many courses, i still feel like i got a very well rounded education
I have had an amazing time in this school. I have met so many close friends here and the staff has been insanely encouraging. I also feel like I have learned so much about the field I want to enter that I actually feel prepared for College.
The safest place for various students. GREAT PLACE to work at your own pace. Saved my life. Teachers are fantastic.
A great fit for my student! We didn't think she would thrive in her zoned school with 1500 students, and RNHS really gave her the opportunity to be seen and heard. Unfortunately, there is a lot of staff turnover, which I believe is in large part due to the fact that Wilco doesn't pay their teachers as much as FSSD or Metro. That meant my student lost several of her favorite teachers during her years there. Overall, from the introspection with the application process, through the personal development in iLab, I think it is a special place that allows for students to become whoever they choose to be.
I don't know if I would have been able to get through high school if it wasn't for Renaissance. While it could always improve and we (students) would rib each other over how silly some of the rules seemed, I doubt any other school offers as much freedom and care for its students. It's a small school with a huge heart. I truly grew into myself there.
The school is welcoming and accepting. From your first day all the students and teachers are so nice, and clearly care about what your saying, which is not something that can be said of most schools.
I've loved getting to go to Renaissance the last 4 years. Although there isn't an honors or AP program (although they are starting to add more as the years go on) I feel like I've had a very good education. But where Renaissance really shines is in its students and faculty. The teachers are absolutely phenomenal, many are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach, and most importantly, they really care about the students. The culture at Renaissance is very accepting, super friendly, a little weird, but overall incredibly endearing. Many alums come back to visit because of the community, and I'll be very sad to leave it at the end of the year.
Love it so much. People are awesome and so are teachers. Kids can actually go off campus for lunch, unlike other school. Also teachers actually want to get to know you instead of them seeing you just as a number. As for college prep it is amazing. The councilors do their best to get you into a college you actually want to go to. If you are stuck they are available all though out the day to help. The people here are fun, accepting, and unlike any other school out there. This is a place where things that we wish to create become a reality whether it be an app, record music, or paint giant murals on the wall. Anything is possible with the help of both students and teachers here and it's also really fun.
The teachers really care. Without the teachers at this school, I probably wouldn't be here today. The students always find a way to annoy me, but students come and go. The principal has some work to do when it comes to dealing with the students. I do not want to be treated like a child. The SRO is a super cool guy. Overall, great school.
I have really come to love RNHS with its laid back attitude and individualized care for each student.
What I enjoy most about Renaissance High School is that the community is very close with each other. Also teachers are willing to help you in order to see you succeed in your academics and your art. even though Renaissance High School does not have a cafeteria many students bring their own lunch or able to go out to lunch.
Really great school overall. Great teachers. Great classes. Interesting people. Smaller school so its hard to get away from drama or people but it's still a very caring and empathetic student body. Teachers want you to succeed and excel. Not very rigorous however.
Was hopeful but after all the years my hopes were destroyed on 5-19-18. What a pathetic way to end your high school career. I thought the teachers cared, I was fooled. It’s just like ever place else except they pretend to be supporting.
When I first switched to Renaissance High School I was against the idea of going there, but within my first two hours at the school I made many friends and felt welcomed. This school is so diverse and the teachers genuinely care. This school can get some bad representation due to our small size. For example, when one person slips up in a small environment like ours, it looks much worse statistically, but don’t let that change your opinion on this school. Every student cares about one another and it’s truly a family.
Renaissance High School is a wonderfully small environment where students can express themselves in a variety of different ways. The school sponsors three different elective focuses, or "academies", where students can learn how to use varying skills and software that are useful in their dedicated fields. The academies include art, sound, and apps, which pertain to fine arts and digital arts, music focus and sound design, and coding and programming, respectively. All teachers are amazing scholars and great friends to the students, who truly want nothing more than to help see students grow and exceed in their academics.
The atmosphere at RNHS is warm, welcoming, empathetic and cordial. The teachers genuinely care about the students as people, not numbers. There are 3 counselors available to talk to students about college, issues, random topics, school work or anything else. Even our principal will sit down and talk with students to ensure they are doing okay mentally and emotionally before bringing up their grade; ensuring student' safety takes precedence. Students generally enjoy school life here and do not dread coming to school every day. We have little homework, but lots of PBL's that teach students life lessons, to think differently, and work in groups. Our school pushes the students to strive further in an encouraging way; it is thought provoking and challenging, but never tedious.
I graduated from Renaissance High class of 2016. This school changed my life for the better, and I couldn't say where I'd be without it. The faculty and staff are some of the most caring, diverse individuals who are exceptional at their jobs, and help to make Renaissance the great place that it is. Throughout high school, I never thought I'd miss it one bit, but I really, truly do. However, I have many memories of good and bad times to last me a lifetime.
