The Springfield Renaissance School Reviews

188 reviews

Favorites are definitely a thing here, The teachers pick a lottery when you walk in, in the sixth grade for who they want to help and pass, and they leave everyone else to fail. There is no room to grow here, you're with the same kids, uniforms, classrooms and teachers for seven years. Middle school is good, but wouldn't recommend high school. There is also no STEM work at all, they are very poor, don't let them fool you. The only actually good classes are History and English.
They are also very pushy on college, so many people from my class dropped out of college or didn't bother going because they shove it down your throat for 7 years.
There is also not Art, music, or really any clubs, sports aren't important either, this whole school basically thrives on being college bound.

The Springfield Renaissance school in recent years lost what made it special and that driving force of caring staff. The constant focus of 100 percent college acceptance and focusing on unimportant details without fixing glaring issues is bringing it down daily.

The education you get is on par as you would get in other schools, though the experience could be argued to be lesser considering the schools lack of focus in extracurriculars/Arts, etc. Unless of course those consist of a few sports.

This can be attributed to the small size of the school and funding of public education in a predominantly mixed urban city. But if someone has the opprtunity to go to a school that will offer these little things that will encourage and push kids to focus and try in school, please do it.
The Springfield Renaissance School is a perfect example of an interactive school body with dedication to their students. TSRS values student voice and equity over everything and we are constantly finding new ways to teach equality. The students feel comfortable with the teachers and it is overall a very pragmatic school. The school knows what its students need and how they will successfully convery information to struggling students and all students alike. I could not be critical of The Springfield Renaissance School in good conscience.
