Renert School is interested in curious and intellectually alive children who can benefit from its wide range of learning opportunities. In terms of past academic performance, Renert School is best suited to children who possess strong academic skills and who are easily able to manage grade level expectations.
For many gifted students, Renert School is a dream school because it can support them profoundly at all levels. Renert School is not suited for students with severe learning disabilities, attentional issues, or behavioural problems.
Since a culture of appreciation is one of the school’s main pillars, Renert School also places an important emphasis on applicants’ social behavior. In this regard, Renert School seeks to admit students who are kind to their peers, respectful to their teachers, and open to growing and exploring new things.
Parents must attend an Information Session to learn about the school’s philosophy and programs.
Parents complete an application form and submit it to the school along with additional required documents (see below).
If the school appears to be a good fit for the child, the school invites the child to participate in an assessment, which includes an individualized test of academic skills as well as an in-class evaluation.
If the child passes the assessment stage successfully, the family is invited for an interview.
The school notifies parents of its admission decision. If accepted, Parents pay the registration deposit and submit completed registration forms to the school.
