Renaissance Academy Reviews

By a Current Student on

As a current student, about to be a former student, Renaissance Academy really helped me become a person who think about the world around us, and to think that words have power. One of our quotes is: words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, and character becomes destiny.

This school is a california distinguished school . I am in the 8th grade and about to graduate the teacher really help you in school and teach students valuable lessons that lead to a good person. When I graduate I am really going to miss this school, especially Mr. Iwasaki. He teaches 8th grade math and he makes class so fun because he is funny,but he is very striked with his work getten done by the students. I feel I left a family in this school.
