The Renaissance International School is an independent, Montessori school with campuses in Oakland and Piedmont for children ages 2 years through middle school. Our program includes art, music and French and Spanish language immersion.
We provide a high-quality education designed so that children become compassionate, capable, confident, creative individuals.
Central to the school’s philosophy is to provide children with an international center of learning and culture that is open, supportive and multidisciplinary, where they develop and achieve their highest potential.
As a result, our students love school and love to learn. They thrive in our multicultural, multidisciplinary environment where they engage in individualized learning.
Our course of study has an integrated, thematic approach. It ties the separate disciplines of the curriculum together into studies of the physical universe, the world of nature, and the human experience. While encompassing the full substance of the traditional curriculum, it goes beyond to teach students how to think clearly, conduct their own research, express themselves well in writing and speech and put their knowledge to a practical application.
