    "Had a great time. I started in the 11th grade and enjoyed my entire time there. They welcomed me the first day and that was a good feeling."

    "The most JUDGEMENTAL. HYPOCRITICAL. & NARROW MINDED school I've ever experienced. The school only promotes the gayness of the kids & not their art or talent. Gay parades take place in the school rather than art parades or culture parades , but because the gays feel like they are the most important thing on this planet so they must have a parade leaving other students in the school that don't share the same lifestyle out. The kids are Judge-y when it comes to others differences and it contradicts the whole concept of the school which is to express yourself but when one does so in a way that is different from the rest that person is excessively harrassed and bashed on.The school is not even about the love of art it's all about being in the political business & making sure everyone hears ones narrow minded opinion & views about a topic."

    "I attended at Renaissance High School for the Arts to better my technique and knowledge in the visual arts. To my astonishment, I had already sold a painting of mine to the vice principal at this school after graduating from there. It was my very first paycheck that I received from something I love doing; art. This school gives you that push you need to move forward in pursuing your dreams even though to many it seems unlikely and unrealistic. What Renaissance High School for the Arts needs are new academic teachers that will motivate and change student's lives. Teachers that have a genuine passion for helping them to become successful, rather than working to just collect their daily paychecks."

    "Being a queer person, I had a really unique and safe experience at Renaissance. I was surrounded by lots of understanding peers and teachers of my identity. It was a warm a welcoming place and I think of it fondly. The teachers were not always the best because the lacked funding. However, this is not the school doing as the schools in the district get funding based on the size of the schools' population and Renaissance is the smallest school in the district, with approximately 500 students. Most of the schools funding went to the arts programs there. Students were allowed to take a range of different art classes including Theater, Visual Arts, and Music. All together it was a wonderful learning experience and somewhere I felt very protected and comfortable at."

    "Renaissance is/was a great school. I say is because of the upperclassman English Dept. and the Arts Program as a whole, the diversity, and the all-around chill vibes you'd get from the students. I say was because it's given the appearance that the students no longer care for the arts, and some are just there to be there. You'll find diversity, sure, and when you're there you're a family; but year after year it seems it's becoming less of an art school and more of a public school with a couple arts programs. All in all, I'd recommend this school to people who are serious about expanding their craft or genuinely exploring what their craft is."
