• Robin Gillette Principal's Message: 

    It is my pleasure as Principal to welcome you to Renaissance High School, “Home of the Knights.” Renaissance High School’s faculty, staff members and I are very excited and look forward to working together with you as a team in partnership with your child’s education.


    It is the belief of Renaissance High School that students can and will excel in an environment that is tailored to their evolving needs. The hard working staff is both skilled and dedicated to the success of all students. We are fortunate to have experienced and knowledgeable teachers eager to make a difference for our students. We believe in a student-centered approach, which provides an atmosphere in which a student’s social, emotional, and intellectual needs are equally important.


    At Renaissance High School, students are treated as young adults - with all the respect, responsibilities, and consideration this implies. As one of our goals we strive to identify and remove educational barriers to improve academic success. Renaissance High School expectations are high as we believe in a student’s ability to be successful.


    Renaissance High School is proud to share with you that in 2012 we participated in a Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) review. Through the review process Renaissance High School was awarded a six-year accreditation good through June 2018, with a one day mid-term visit in 2015. The WASC review validates our mission and vision statement for student success. Additionally, for the 2012-13 school year; we have added the Microsoft IT Academy and are taking steps to offer a Cisco systems curriculum to expand our technology department


    In April 2013, Renaissance High School was selected as a Model SARB Program school for the State of California. We are 1 of 11 schools to receive this distinction from the State of California.


    This school year, 2014-15, we are fortunate to add a sixth teacher part-time; Mr. Alamillo joins the RHS staff. Mr. Alamillo teaches World History and Interventions class. The addition of Mr.

    Alamillo has allowed us to increase our course offering in the master schedule. We are very excited to have him on a campus; his presence is a very positive influence with our student body

    and staff alike.


    Our goal in presenting you with information is to keep our parents and community well informed. In reflection of that goal, we desire to keep the lines of communication open and welcome any suggestions, comments, or questions you may have along with your participation in your child’s education. It is my opinion and that of the district that a well-informed public is vital in continuing to advance in an ever-changing world.


    I encourage all parents and guardians to become more involved in the education of your student, research has shown the greater the parent involvement the greater the success of your student.  Please join with us in being involved with your student and their educational experience.  There is an African proverb that states, “It takes a village to raise a child,” please come and be part of our village!
