"I was always encouraged at American Renaissance to express myself creatively. Art class was always the highlight of my week but I loved that other subjects gave us the opportunity to complete projects creatively as well. The support from all of the wonderful teachers and staff gave me the confidence to pursue a higher education and ultimately a career in the arts."
