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.
