The Piedmont site is a great asset to our school, and meets the needs of our growing student body. It provides the space to expand all our class levels from preschool through middle school.
OAKLAND, CA, August 06, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Renaissance International School (TRIS), an independent Montessori school in Oakland for children ages two years old through middle school, announces that it is adding a second location at 5201 Park Boulevard in Piedmont to house first grade through middle school.
The site, which was previously occupied by Zion Lutheran School, is being leased by TRIS. It provides the school with approximately 10,000 square feet of classroom and administration space.
"The Piedmont site is a great asset to our school, and meets the needs of our growing student body," says Leslie Hites, TRIS's founder and head of school. "It provides the space to expand all our class levels from preschool through middle school."
Since its founding in 1992, TRIS has been located at 3650 Dimond Avenue in Oakland. It will maintain that campus for pre-primary and primary levels, administration offices, and possibly an infant program in the future.
TRIS's course of study encompasses the full substance of the traditional curriculum, and goes beyond to teach students how to think clearly, do their own research, express themselves well in writing and speech, and put their knowledge to practical application. The school has excellent music, fine arts, and English/French/Spanish language immersion programs.
Central to TRIS's philosophy is to provide students with an international center of learning and culture that is open and supportive where students develop and achieve their highest potential.
