    "I attended a parent night at this school at the urging of a friend and it blew me away! Renaissance is an expeditionary learning outward bound school, which means that the learning is more hands-on and inquiry based as opposed to a teacher standing in front of the classroom lecturing. Teachers encourage students to think deeply about subjects. Test scores are high for a school that is not shy about their view that they don't "teach to the test" because all of the students become critical and creative thinkers. All students attend overnight voyages beginning in Kindergarten which builds a school culture that has very little bullying and encourages students to help one another. In fact, the motto "We are crew, not passengers" greets everyone walking into the school in large letters over the door, reminding students that they work as a team and take responsibility for their learning. Children from Renaissance continue on with a deep understanding of themselves and a confidence in learning and social relationships that is invaluable. As a parent, I could send my kids to a skill and drill school with higher scores, but my children will leave Renaissance with far greater thinking skills."

    "I could almost go to 5 stars but I am going to say four plus. I have two kids in this school and have been impressed with most everything. It is a different style of learning and any parents looking at this should not send their children to this school without learning about the outward bound program. The students learn by doing and observing. They do get some "bookwork" but to me, not as much as say an Academy Charter. The good part, my children are developing into confident young people, the bad, they may not be as performance test driven as some other charter schools. For me, I will take the trade-off. They are blossoming into outstanding young people, who can talk to grown ups while looking them in the eye and understand the consequences of their behavior. They learn to push their limits, physically and mentally."

    "What a great blance...outdoors-y and book-smart! Having these children under the same roof along with strong leadership in the classroom and front office make this the best school my children have attended. Great teacher retention. Serious about community and the outdoor-play area is one-of-a-kind."

    "Rich in academic process, super-rich in building community amongst it's attendees and families and puts high emphasis on building character. This is an awesome school if your kid can handle being independent and challenged at times! Awesome!"

    "I'm hard to WOW, and this school has wow'd me with my 2nd and 4th graders. Not only are they learning academics, they are busting into critical thinking skills, teamwork skills and common sense skills that go way beyond what traditional academic only schools offer. What more does a parent want than to have a child who is not only smart, but filled with common sense and camaraderie!"
