We have had a great first week of school! I hope that you have enjoyed the holiday and students are prepared to get busy.
We have received great news recently. The results from our standardized test scores are in and we lead the district and have exceeded the state! These and other metrics has landed Renaissance High School among the top 100 schools in the state! Congratulations to our school community for a job well done.
The expectation is that we Continue to Rise using our 7 Pillars of a Phoenix to anchor us in this endeavor. If we all come to school with the mindset that everyone here is welcomed, respected and valued, then it will provide just what we need to soar farther over the rest.
Let's do this!
