Congratulations to every current and former Renaissance student, parent and teacher that made this happen! Nationally ranked for a second year in a row, 2014 and 2015!
A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.
To produce the 2015 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research, one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world.
The U.S. News comprehensive rankings methodology is based on the key principles that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show the school is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.

During the month of December we sent a fairly lengthy parent survey home with every Renaissance student. Almost 200 parents responded, and we have now compiled and analyzed the data. There are some areas that made us feel very proud and others that reminded us that there is work to do before we can truly call ourselves a beacon school (a school that serves as a model for other schools to emulate). Please feel free to examine the Renaissance Parent Survey Results . All Renaissance parents should receive the March 2014 Newsletter with further details.

Crater Renaissance Academy Arts & Sciences is extremely proud to be one of two Oregon schools honored by Oregon ASCD to receive the 2012- 2013 ASCD Educating the Whole Child for the 21st Century Award. This award is designed to recognize schools that have gone beyond a vision for educating the whole child to actions that result in learners who are knowledgeable, emotionally and physically healthy, civically active, artistically engaged, prepared for economic self-sufficiency, and ready for the world beyond formal schooling.
This award acknowledges those schools that have changed the conversation about education from a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that promotes the development of the whole child: a child who is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. Renaissance will continue to seek improvement in all areas in pursuing its mission to serve as a beacon school.
