More about Renaissance ›


The credentials of the faculty at Renaissance Elementary School are impressive—many teachers hold postgraduate degrees and the classroom teachers are licensed in Vermont.  Beyond their degrees, however, the teaching staff understands that students who feel socially and emotionally at ease are more engaged learners. As a result, their classrooms are both academically engaging and nurturing.
