My son is a senior at Renaissance High School and I am thankful that he is attending the school. The school has delivered and has improved yearly as evidenced by their data.

My son is a senior this year at Renaissance high school and he's doing great. We had nothing but a good experience throughout this four year journey.

I am a freshman and I'm very impressed so far. For me that's saying a lot because I attended Grosse Pointe Public Schools and Detroit charter schools all my life so I have high expectations.

In response to the parent's post in May, there was no air conditioning at all when I attended Renaissance (I graduated in 1985) and I am no worse for the wear. You do not have to be in an air conditioned room to receive an education.

Renaissance is a great school. But, it still has it's problems like most schools do. I don't like when the air is not working, they keep the children in school when it's hot. Of course the office has air. Also when the power goes out, the students are still in school when they should be let out and ...  Read more
