    "We entered my son into RA at the beginning of sixth grade as I was less than happy at how he was doing at our local school district. He has thrived there and gone on to produce some really fine work and great grades. He is very bright and was simply adrift at the local school where all the emphasis was on the kids who were struggling to perform. Here he is challenged in pretty much everything he does and he really has to try as vs. just coast. Is the school perfect? No, of course not, but even with the problems that they face they have certainly helped my son tremendously"

    "This is my child's first year at Renaissance Academy Charter School... the school is great at keeping the parents informed. The students are given plenty of homework assignments, quizzes and exams. The school offers tons of extracurricular activities for the children and fun activities including the parents involvement. The teachers are very organized but can tend to focus more on the grading and percentages than on the individual student."

    "Renaissance Academy Administration and School Board need to be reviewed by an independent company. They do not follow the rules that they have provided in faculty and or student handbooks. Teachers are not reviewed fairly and are constantly being asked to perform excessive paperwork and are not provided adequate space. The school board is totally unaware of what takes place during the school day and does not attend school functions on a regular basis. Administration plays favorites and are untrained on how to evaluate staff and the capabilities of the subject areas they teach. This was a great school at one point....However I have seen the light and it is headed in a very wrong direction. As for the new building. It is a joke! It is not a bigger space, just a new more expensive space. How about we work on getting computers with all of the keys on them or connect to the internet/program without taking 20+ minutes to logon. Just embarrassing."

    "RA could be a great school and it probably is a great school for the numerous students who are children of staff members and board members. It seems they run the school for them. There is a great deal of favoritism towards these kids to the point that other kids give up trying. CEO doesn't see it but her kids are some of favored pet students. It must be nice to use public funds to have your children be pampered."

    "I am a student at R.A. and the learning environment is great, but the pointless rules and control-freak staff ruin the school for everyone. It would be a great school overall but the staff is extremely strict to pointless means like chewing gum and showing affection towards other students. The school as of 2014 is going on a suspension spree, suspending kids and ruining their high school records over small things like showing affection and disrupting class, while many worse things are noticed but are let by due to unknown reasons. It is very unprofessional and lacks the right feel of a school. It is described by many as a 'jail like building' with many uncommon rules and unnecessary abusive rules. The school would be worth attending, but students spend more time complaining about the rules, rather than learning. It would be a great school? But sadly it's not."
