We have a little inside scoop on Renaissance High School. Check out this perspective from a local high school student

Licncoln is my youngest son and attends Renaissance High School in Meridian. I asked him to write about his school and this is his quick report-

School at Renaissance

This year is my third year attending Renaissance High School in Meridian, Idaho. Renaissance is a school that tries to set its students up for success in college. In your first two years they put more advanced high school classes in your schedule so that in your final two years you can take college classes. Some classes they can fit a year in a semester only highlighting important parts of the course so that you still learn everything that you need to. Renaissance is a unique school because it offers three courses that most other schools in Idaho  offer. You can choose to take the Associates degree program that will have you take college level classes from many local colleges in Idaho and at the end of your senior year you graduate with and associated degree in liberal arts from Idaho State University. Then there is the International Bachelorette Diploma Program. This program will prepare you for your college experience and if a student wants to attend college out of state this will look amazing on their resume because of the rigor of the program. Finally you can choose the International Bachelorette Career Path (IBCP). A student taking this program will choose a career path between Engineering, Medical, or Culinary. Their classes are geared towards teaching them job skills and certifying them in different skills. I personally choose the IBCP program and I am focusing in engineering. I really like my school because in past years school came easy for me and Renaissance challenges me and also has classes for my interests. I want to get a job in electrical engineering and go to college for that and over my three years I have taken many engineering classes that introduce me to all kinds of different types of engineering and helped  me come to my liking to electricians. I also received many college credits from Northwest

Nazarene University for my hardwork in my classes. I feel very prepared for college and I owe it all to Renaissance.
