Our School

Our Roots

Renaissance One, or Paterson Public School Number One, is a Choice School which was created in 1992 to alleviate overcrowding in our district. It currently serves the elementary level from Kindergarten through 5th Grade.

Entering our thirty-second year, our focus remains on the study of the humanities through integrated thematic planning. We work together as a professional learning community toward our unwavering commitment to meeting the academic and social-emotional needs of the students we serve.

The Renaissance One Difference

The academic strength of School One stems from the faculty's dedication to providing a research-based, balanced literacy program based on the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) and implementing differentiated instruction to meet the individualized needs of each student. 

It is our vision and our mission to share responsibility with the entire educational community to provide a safe, caring environment. We support children emotionally, socially, and cognitively in an intellectually stimulating setting where individual ideas are valued.

The Future

We remain committed to refining our professional learning community, developing collective learning goals and fostering continuous school-wide improvement in preparing our students to achieve academic excellence.


Application Process

Kindergarten students are accepted through a lottery process. Students in grades 1-5 may apply through an interview process.
