Welcome to Our Middle School

Our Latest News

Renaissance School of the Arts is the hidden gem of the District 4 community. RSA is an open enrollment middle school, grades 6-8, founded in 2008 by Dr.Tammy Pate. The school focuses on the arts with three majors that students can choose from: band, dance, and visual arts.

The current Principal, Dr. Brian Bradley, took over in 2014. Since then, the standard middle school curricula have expanded to include high school level regents courses in algebra, living environment, and U.S. History for all 8th graders. The arts program has streamlined into a pre-conservatory style, technique based program that students engage in daily. This prepares students to compete in the rigorous admission auditions for specialized NYC high schools. RSA has a small community filled with passionate educators and loving, happy families all working together to promote well-being and success for our students.

Our Vision

RSA will become the premier arts program in District 4. Our students will gain entrance to and be competitive at the top arts high schools in New York City.

Our Mission

Through high level arts courses, the collaborative inquiry process, rigorous academic curricula, explicit social emotional instruction and focus on enhancing for success in all aspects of life. No limits No Boundaries.
