    Renaissance is the best middle school in Montclair. Not only are the frequent field incredibly but the teachers are outstanding!! Renaissance and the teachers encourages individuality. They constantly challenge kids and make interesting lessons! My kids enjoy waking up in the morning to go to school! Renaissance is a unique school where the students and the teachers are friends! Renaissance beliefs in project work instead of homework everyday your child might end up having a lot of cool interesting projects instead of worksheets! Overall Renaissance is a fantastic place! I am so glad that my family is part of the Renaissance family!

    this school is truly a gem in Montclair. The kids are motivated excited and engaged about the school and more importantly learning. Principal is great teachers are caring. My older nor went to mt. Hebron and had a less than mediocre experience which did not prepare her for the high school. Not so with renaissance. My younger one will be prepared for the high school after renaissance. She loves it.

    Renaissance is wonderful the learning is great and the only drawback is that there are no advanced classes and the fact that you learn from others makes up for that. BRAVO!

    The academic program at Renaissance can't be beat. Arts program is not what this school is about.

    My son attended this school and he loved it and he loved the teachers. Mr. G as they call him had tears in his eyes when the class of 2004 left. My son received A's and B'a for the first time for three years because the teachers were there for the kids and really did their jobs to teach them. Glenfield and Mt. Hebron can not compare in my eyes.

    The teachers are great! The students respect them and they joke around. But when its time to get work done that's what they do. The music and art program is avergae. It has sports teams and clubs. Parental involvement can be minimal or maximum.
