The Renaissance School of Art and Reasoning is a middle school "Choice School" in the Lake Washington School District for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.
Students develop in an environment of artistry, rigor and warmth. Students learn to think and act using multiple approaches and perspectives. They are known and nurtured as important individuals who have an active concern for their community and society.
7th and 8th grade students may apply at any time during the year and will be admitted on a "space available" basis.
All Lake Washington School District students entering the 6th grade are welcome to apply and need do so in their 5th grade year. Each Choice School holds their mandatory open house/tour in January and applications are available only at this time.
Acceptance is determined by a lottery system held at the LWSD Resource Center so that all who apply have an equal chance to attend. Those who are assigned numbers beyond the number of available openings are automatically put onto waiting list.
