We have been cooking up many delicious recipes in our classrooms. Cooking activities provide students with skills in academic areas such as math and science as well as offiering insight into different cultures. Providing children with an international and multidisciplinary experience is one of the founding principles of The Renaissance International School. Our school is an international community of teachers, students, and families.
