The Renaissance International School’s Students Go Beyond the Expected


Looking for a school that honors your child’s unique potential and nurtures their curiosity, creativity, and passion? Our students grow to be leaders and explorers; they become responsible citizens who are capable, innovative, compassionate, and confident.

Located in Oakland and Piedmont, we provide a multilingual Montessori education for children ages two years through middle school. Our classrooms are meticulously designed to inspire independence, nurture curiosity, and cultivate creativity. Our hands-on curriculum, which includes fine arts, choral music, outdoor education, cultural cooking, and international travel, offers students the opportunity to go beyond the traditional school curriculum. Students progress at their own pace on a guided exploration of math, science, geography, history, and language that not only helps them develop knowledge specific to these areas, but simultaneously helps them develop the skills they will need to succeed in an ever changing world: communication, problem-solving, and persistence.

Our students thrive in our trilingual immersion environment (English/Spanish/French) where they progress individually under the guidance of native speakers. This experience allows students to understand, speak, read, and write the languages, and develops their brains in unique ways.
We believe that children learn best by doing, that evaluation goes beyond test taking, that collaboration is more important than competition, and that a strong academic foundation emphasizes comprehension over memorization. We aspire to produce the next generation of thinkers, innovators, and lifelong learners by providing an environment where children feel loved, celebrated, and supported.

Graduates attend The College Preparatory School, Bishop O’Dowd, Bentley School, Lick-Wilmerding, Oakland Tech, Head Royce, and other excellent Bay Area schools.
