This Saturday, Renaissance High School students are releasing a student-produced album, FOREVEBRIGHT. All proceeds from the CD sales will benefit the Davis House, an organization that combats child abuse by coordinating services to children and their families in crisis and providing community education. In addition, students will be selling hand-made jewelry that will also benefit the Davis House. The CD release party will be Saturday, May 13, 11:00-1:00, at Renaissance High School on Everbright Avenue.
Renaissance High is a Williamson County public school for students who thrive in a smaller, relationship-centered environment that fosters the 21st century skills of creativity/innovation, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. Project-based learning, one-to-one technology, design thinking, and social entrepreneurship are embedded into academic courses.
Renaissance plays an essential role in the community, both for the students who benefit from this special brand of education and for the organizations benefiting from their project-based learning. With many of their projects, students “pay it forward” by shining the spotlight on other community organizations and the needs they serve.
This special brand of education at Renaissance does not just happen, it is carefully orchestrated and nurtured by the Renaissance faculty and staff. They work tirelessly, often before and after school and even some Saturdays to meet students’ diverse academic needs and help them develop the growth mindset needed for lifelong success. In addition to each teaching three or four different courses throughout the six-period day, teachers also take on the role of mentoring students through Innovation Lab products which fuel purpose and passion and include everything from original recordings, music videos, documentaries, animations, and video games.
