Along with core subjects, the school offers extracurricular activities that focus on the arts and music. This helps to acknowledge the students’ strengths in these areas and develop them even more. Students can choose to play violin, viola, cello and bass. On the downside, students expressed that the school does not offer any sports or other extra curricular activities. Several students stated they would love to have a few sports added.
Parents are thrilled with the curriculum and the teachers that treat all students with respect with the gifts that they bring to the school. At Renaissance Arts Academy students can balance their life between becoming a musician and a well rounded scholar. Students love the arts program, but say that the school has drama.
