Vision Statement: Belhaven Renaissance celebrates hard work, commitment, great character, leadership, and participation by involving students, staffulty, parents, and the community in sharing the fun and passion for excellence in education.
Renaissance is a process that empowers students, educators, administrators, parents, businesses, and community organizations to work together to encourage student achievement, celebrate success, and increase community involvement in our schools. Renaissance was started by Larry Biddle in Conway, South Carolina in 1987. We started at Belhaven in 1999. Today, over 4,300 schools nationwide are Renaissance schools. Belhaven is a member of the Penn/Jersey Coalition which has over 120 schools. We are the first school in Atlantic County to become a Renaissance school.
Renaissance schools establish goals, develop strategies and plans, identify tools, and track results of their progress.
Once you make the commitment guarantee, you can set goals and create an environment that increases performance, changes the culture, and improves productivity.
The great things happening in our schools today are the communities’ best kept secret.
Schools are the biggest and most important business in town – Kids are 24% of the population and 100% of our future.
The Four Rs of Renaissance:
Respect, Recognition, Reward, & Reinforce
Renaissance Mission Statement: Renaissance is the first and only national education-focused program created to recognize and reward the academic achievements of students from elementary school through college.
Its primary goals are to increase student performance and teacher enthusiasm, and raise the level of community participation in schools.
Belhaven Renaissance is
AN ATTITUDE! We control our attitude every day when we come to school.
Doing well in school is cool. Trying our best is cool. Not blaming other people for our actions is cool. Renaissance is cool! Belhaven Renaissance transforms recognition from a few top students to all students.
We include all of our Staffulty (faculty and staff). We include all students. We spend our time catching students doing the right thing rather than spending our time catching students doing the wrong thing.
