Renaissance is a fairly small charter school, which is nice because you really get to know everyone there. Our principal likes to call us a family, which is pretty much true. Everyone there is for some type of art, so you meet a lot of people with similar interests to you. Our school's main goal is to make us very versatile artists who can create art in many different forms. For example, I'm a dancer however I also take photography, painting and theater classes. I never would have found my love for photography had it not been for Renaissance. We also have a block schedule that changes every day so we can take as many classes as possible. So while it's nice that I only have English twice a week, it creates a lot of homework which has pushed me to be a hard-worker who has to have a lot of self-motivation and time management. While it's extremely difficult I would never change it.

Renaissance is an amazing place to learn, there are a lot of hands on classes and the acceptance and tolerance that you see is inspiring and comforting. Creativity is obvious at this school and the teachers are great and the director Mr. Richards is a great leader and mentor. I am a good student but was never a fan of getting up early and going to school but renaissance makes life better.
In my time at Renaissance I noticed there was a bit of a bias towards certain arts, i.e. more photography and drawing classes than dance, writing, or music (especially instrumental). If you're planning on attending Renaissance for arts that aren't in high demand with a high percentage of other students, then expect your class choices to be few and boring. The block scheduling is a great concept, but makes for awful conflicts when a class you really want to take is only offered during an academic class you're required to take. The academic classes through Renaissance (social studies and English) is nice because you only have to take them once or twice per week, but compared to traditional "same-class-every-day" scheduling, you definitely don't get the same kind of education. In a once a week humanities class, you won't learn what you could in an every day world history class.
