Renaissance High School is a great school for those who want to be challenged. And I do mean challenged! I would know. I'm currently a Junior and the curriculum is top notch! The teachers and students are great. Not to mention the various sports and clubs that are available. It's great to be a RHS Phoenix.

I think Renaissance High School is an AWSOME PLACE!! That’s why I would love to be there they have certain standards and I believe I can follow them there pretty simple you just have to know when and were is the time to play and be serious. I believe I have grown to learn that threw different experiences. I also think it’s awesome to have a school that only except certain children and have standards that we as the student body have to follow or we have to find another school and we have to learn that that’s how life goes and there getting us ready for the real world. So I appreciate Renaissance High School for all they do and that’s why I would love to attend that school and what I think about Renaissance.

Renaissance is a great School for people who want to be prepared for College. Its not a good school for people who want to play around. Of Course they have fun but Renaissance teaches you its a time an place for eveything.

At this time, I'm a sophomore and i personally believe numbers of awards and "critics reviews" are of no importance or significance in why "my" highschool has the reputation it does. We have kept this title due to our majority number of student body population who are just as gifted as they are smart. Therefore, we all have enrolled into this school to be challenged, and that is exactly what it does. It challenges the minds of intelligent and gifted young adults, to prepare them for the top colleges.

I'm currently a junior at Renaissance High school and contrary to what people are saying our school standards are NOT lowereing. In fact it seems like its outside standards that are dropping. WE continue to be an outstanding school and procude excellent scholars and leaders, and we will forever continue to do so. Phoenix SPIRIT

I'm a junior this coming fall and I noticed that alot of people make Renaissance seem like it's so great when really each year their standards lower...we are not a 4 star or 5 star school anymore.
