The Renaissance School's students thrive in the school's multicultural, multidisciplinary environment where they engage in individualized learning with a strong music, arts and language immersion program. Students in the primary years begin learning a second language. They are taught in English and Spanish or English and French. When they get to the Elementary level, students add the third language, bringing to bear a tri-lingual immersion program. The Renaissance School is the only genuine three-language immersion Montessori school in the U.S.
Tours are also available by appointment.
