The Renaissance Charter School Reviews

Well, let's just say that a few teachers actually care about you like ET, Tara, Everett, and Jose. BTW I'm only giving two stars for the teachers who actually care. Also, why is some person like Suzanne Arnold running the high school, she just dives random dress code rules and policies. Rebekah who is the drama teacher is literally Suzane's best friend and so she thinks that she has a lot of power and tends to suspend kids with Suzanne's permission. SO PLEASE DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! Lastly, why isn't Suzanne Arnold fired like seriously, and if this review is deleted somehow it was probably the school cause it wants to look like a good school and delete all its bad reviews, why do I sound superstitious it's because the lowest review is a 3-star review.

I have enjoyed the relationships I’ve built with everyone. Growing up in that small school, I’ve gotten to know everyone very well. I never hesitated to ask anyone for help with anything. Teachers made sure you did well in the class, not just pass. I was never afraid of doing bad in a class. I also believe that more art focused clubs should be added. More clubs would strengthen the community in the school, however, money was always an issue. When I worked with the literary magazine, the lack of money prevented us from doing a lot, such as printing hard, professional copies of our work. Many students in that school were/are creative and it’s important to provide spaces where they can express their creativity. The art departments need renovation. I think the school needed to focus more there. Besides these issues, the school and it’s community has helped me be a more driven and empathetic person. I’m sure they will continue to be a good school.
I'm currently a junior at the school, and I've had quite a pleasant experience at the school. Being there since kindergarten allowed me to create lifelong bonds with people there. The school is super diverse; Lord knows how many nations are represented in the school!
We have a private food company, which increases the quality of the food. I feel challenged in school, which is a good thing.
Its small size and status as a charter school doesn't allow for many resources to be allocated, but we make do with what we have.
I've really enjoyed my experience here.
Especially Rensizzle Week. You NEED to experience that for yourself.
