Another of Renaissance Academy’s greatest strengths is the clear commitment that all stakeholders have toward continuous school improvement. At Renaissance, school improvement is a process that is embedded in everything that is done at the school. Students, staff, the administration, parents, and the board are always striving to find areas in which the school can improve and when those areas are identified, all stakeholders work together as a team to overcome any hurdles and face any challenges that are standing in the way of further progress and school improvement. This strength of the school is linked to the strength of common and agreed upon vision and purpose because it is through that shared understanding and commitment that the school remains focused on the objective of improvement.
