    "I currently have 2 children at Renaissance. We have had a very positive experience there and we are certainly not a "favored family". My children are very different yet both have done extremely well socially and academically. All of the teachers we have had and interacted with offer help continuously when they feel it is needed or are asked by a student. Teachers will meet with the children during lunches, before and/or after school but obviously the student has to WANT the help! There will always be issues at any school. The couple of times I have had concerns I contacted the teacher, CEO and/or the administration, each time my problems were addressed and solved in a fair, timely manner. We are looking forward to the new building and years to come!"

    "I removed my child from this school over racial bullying. For two years I requested that the anti-bullying curriculum incorporate racial bullying as a subset, but my request fell on deaf ears. The school has a highly diverse student body (nearly 40% are students of color) but the opposite is true for the administration and faculty. It is essential for children to see and be taught by role models of diverse backgrounds. When faculty and administrators are not specifically taught to recognize and support the diversity in their classrooms, when the do not share the background and experience of the student body, they will be unprepared when incidents do occur. And, incidents will occur, it is the nature of our imperfect society. My child was told by the Dean of Students that what she experienced "did not constitute a racial incident." His lack of formal training and knowledge of the Asian American experience meant that he could not support a vulnerable child in her time of need. Fortunately for my child, we had a plethora of friends, among them civil rights leaders in the Asian American community who supported her. I strongly do not recommend this school."

    "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."
