I have been working for Renaissance School for a little over a year and I love it here. Our staff is here for the students. The children are challenged daily, I enjoy seeing all of the happy faces as they come through the office. We also have a very involved group of parents who help organize special events.

I'm a grandparent of two little girls one in 5K and one in 3rd grade. The oldest has been going to Renaissance since 5K, and has been loving it! I love the way the teacher are limited to the size of there classroom. My 3rd grader has been honor roll since her first year at Renaissance. I think because of the small classes and the love that the teachers have for teaching has helped her along the way! I'm also inpressed how the students are also taught repect and the love of God, for them and others! .....Then there is the office staff ...Ronnie wonderful!! if you have any question she can't answer it for you, she, she will tell you who can find the answer for you.

School? Public School vs Private School? My daughter disliked going to public school. It took me quite awhile to find a different school. I was searching google for schools and it randomly popped up Renaissance School in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin with reviews you would not believe!!!. I am so glad that search came up because my daughter is now attending there and she absolutely loves it. Her teachers helped her excelled tremendously. Racine is a great place to live, but when it comes to education and watching your child grow smarter each and every day Renaissance is the definite answer. Thank you so much Renaissance Schools for what you have done. You are a blessing to my daughter, but you will always be one of th #1 blessings to all children. :) :) :)
