“Renbrook gave me my best start. From my very first year, I was immersed in experiential learning. From Girl Scouts to music and art classes, cooking and sewing in the after-school program, theater, band, and even my very first trip abroad, Renbrook taught me that no passion was too small and that everything was worth trying once, even if I failed.”
