CHARACTER TRAITS

At Renaissance, we know that our success lies in our culture. Our "I Can Make A Difference" Character Traits will help all of our community live up to our ideals. 

 

Talk to your child about what he or she is learning. We will know we have been successful when the actions of all members of our community…student, parents, and staff…reflect our traits.
