“Renbrook set the standard in terms of what I expect from teachers and from a supportive community. The teachers engaged students in discussions inside and outside the classroom such that the subjects jumped to life for me. Most importantly, I credit Renbrook in challenging me to be a more thoughtful and analytical reader, writer, and thinker.”
