Review for Renaissance Charter School, Jackson Heights, NY, USA
My child started attending this school recently and I have nothing but praise for the school so far. The school is a "public/charter school with a private school feel" - it is a small school where everybody knows everyone, the teachers and the staff seem to be up to date with the developments and training, there is a wide variety of activities for children within the curriculum and beyond (chess, dance, Spanish language, after-school programs, green garden on the roof), various workshops (ranging from "How to read to your child" to "How to talk to your child about sex"), plenty of opportunities for parental involvement, easy accessibility of the teachers and staff members. The school has a very diverse enrollment, a regular email newsletter with updates, as well as apparent heavy community involvement. It is a K-12 school and it has been my impression that the older students are helpful to, and protective of, the young ones, that resembles children's behavior in large families. My child is young but I would be surprised to hear about any reports of bullying or similar negative behavior. On the contrary, the students, even the young ones, are taught that bullying is not OK. Most importantly, my child comes back from school happy, and the effects of this school's education are visible.
