Fake arts hs that is stomping ground for extreme leftist teachers and students. Avoid if you are sane parent looking to get your kid into a lucrative college position. They're way more concerned w PC language and revisionist history than teaching people to be competent artists. OCHSA will be opening a LB campus soon, this place will have no talent pool after that.

I am writing this as a former student and presently a neighbor of this high school. What is going on now as I write is excruciating-loud music blasting from Renaissance High. It is so loud I can't hear anything else-and my windows are closed. There are apartments across the street from RHS that advertise for hundreds of thousands. The property values plummet when that kind of noise is a regular occurrence. I have contacted RHS and the LB School Administration, to no avail. Of course we knew there was a high school in our vicinity when we moved here, but we didn't expect their activities would be broadcast over stadium grade loudspeakers. Don't they have an auditiorium? What are they teaching the young people at RHS about consideration for others and being good neighbors?
