Renaissance


Renaissance is the term that we have chosen at Grand Haven High School to identify our program of commitment to the promotion of academic excellence. The name Renaissance was chosen simply because of its definition - rebirth, renovation, restoration, refurbishment, and renewal.

The purpose of Renaissance is to recognize students who are achieving academic excellence and to also recognize those students who are greatly improving and/or have perfect attendance and are good citizens. Traditionally, such students get little more than a "thank you" and a pat on the back. Consequently, Renaissance has been established to recognize students with positive, tangible incentives to encourage them to keep up the good work!

Similar strategies have been used successfully for years in business (employee of the month, plaques, lapel pins, etc.) and in athletics (all-star, M.V.P., athletic letters, Olympic style medals).

Please make yourself familiar with the various Renaissance categories. Some of you have already qualified for awards. Some of you can easily qualify by the end of the trimester!
