The Curriculum combines the formal performance-based Florida Sunshine Standards and informal content and process utilized in the Core Curriculum Model which together will enable our students to gain knowledge and understanding, develop skills, and alter attitudes, appreciation and values under the guidance of a select, highly skilled teaching staff.
Students experience an expanded range of subjects and a variety of teaching methods. The program focuses on each student's individual learning style with interactive studies in mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, music, art, technology, life skills, intramural sports and foreign languages. As a student moves through the lower school grades, there is an added emphasis on organizational skills and individual oral and written reports.
The Renaissance Charter School has as its core philosophy the belief that all children can develop as intellectual learners, function as good citizens, learn as individuals in our society and develop as actual or potential workers in our community. Students can be academically successful, and all subjects can work as potential contributors to their intellectual development.
We value the traditional classroom teacher and the role of the family and its impact on our students, and we place strong emphasis on the value of new information and technologies to enhance the development of the individual strengths of each of our students. We place strong emphasis on identifying our student's learning styles and developing strategies that enable these students to succeed.
We believe in the development of good morals and useful skills in preparing functioning citizens. Renaissance Charter School creates a greater sense of community ownership with the parents due to its location at the workplace, its contractual agreements for parent involvement and because of the intense educational program that focuses on developing effective, functioning human beings.
We believe the synergy of the low teacher-pupil ratio, the goal oriented curriculum and the preparation and teaching experience of the carefully selected staff provides a high level of consistency between our mission and our educational program.
