School Reviews

2   11/9/2010
My daughter has attended the Renaissance academy for the past 3 years. The expectations that the staff put on the children is at a bare minimum. Homework is not given, textbooks are not allowed out of the classroom, and study habits are therefore not taught. These children are passed through high school without any serious prep work for future education at a collegiate level.
