The parent participation is really terrible. I think parents want their kids to do well, but they don't put in the work needed for their child to do so.

Renaissance High school helped me grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually. By the time I graduated, I was a whole new person compared to when I first arrived as freshman. Renaissance helped be more bold, wise and to have more exciting experiences.
