For the last five years, I have watched all three of my daughters flourish at Renaissance. The amazing teachers there foster a love for learning that is unparalleled. The project based learning, immersive Spanish and French language instruction for all grades, music and drama, STEAM, art and outdoor classroom at Shelburne Farms together offers an educational experience unique to our community. More importantly, the school environment is one of nuturinv and acceptance and the children form school wide friendships. Love this special school and am thankful for the teachers there.
