About School Renaissance

School Renaissance is a comprehensive reform model for both primary and secondary, designed to support a school’s core curricula. The programme includes maths, reading and writing interventions, as well as professional development opportunities, organisation and management solutions, technical assistance, strategies for parental involvement, and a plan for annual evaluation.

The programme is supported by a specialist software package, Renaissance Place, which tracks and reports students’ overall academic progress. According to Renaissance Learning, their goal is to help educators make data-based decisions in order to meet the needs of diverse learners.
