The water lily is the symbol of the Renaissance School. It was chosen because of its ability to survive in extreme climates while maintaining beauty and perfection.

The Renaissance School opened its doors in September 1997. The theme of the school is based on the

historic rebirth of the arts and sciences. The school's mission is to educate children to have broad

interests and to be true renaissance people.

The tragedy of September 11th deeply affected our students as it has affected all Americans. Renaissance students commemorated the tragic events. They also faced the challenge of answering the question: "Where do we go from here?" The answer was expressed through art work (tiles project, computer art), poetry and movement ( performance at Bloomfield College, NJ).
