Renaissance High School

History of Renaissance

Renaissance first opened in 2003 as a beginning small school on the Lehman Campus. From its inception Renaissance was engaged in a strong partnership with Lincoln center. Over the years students have attended a multitude of performances and worked with teaching artists to further develop their understanding of the performances they have seen. Renaissance students have also been exposed to a wide variety of Broadway productions through our partnership with TDF (Theater Development Fund). Students are also given a variety of opportunities including the annual musical theater production, the school beginning or advanced band, or the award winning choir.

In 2006 Renaissance joined the AVID community, a national organization designed to promote collegestudents. In 2013 we were selected to be part of the College Success Program, a New York City initiative that is offered to a small group of AVID High Schools. The program provides financial support and internships for select students attending four year colleges. Renaissance began offering AP classes in 2007 and is currently working with other schools in the campus in the AP for all initiative to broaden the AP experience for its students. In addition, the school is also partnered with Lehman College in the College Now program, where Renaissance students have been earning college credit since 2008.

Since 2008 Renaissance students have participated in a number of enrichment programs through our partnership with Bronx Institute. Through this partnership students have taken classes in many different disciplines including, robotics, film production, sports statistics, creative writing and martial arts. This program has also offered students the opportunity to take multiple educational day and overnight trips.
