Has not been a great experience for us. We are looking forward to the new leadership and some new teachers. Some of the special ed. teachers are a joke. The general ed. teachers are, on the whole, not accepting of mainstreaming and too focused on what is best for the "normal" kids. One wonderful exception ...  Read more

I have been very disappointed in this school. Principal seems very unorganized and seems "put out" when having to speak with parents in regards to children. Child used to love going to school and now dreads going to school. Cannot wait to transfer my child out.

There is no encouragement for parents to come into the classroom. As parents, we are very uninformed on what is going on at the school. I have been very unimpressed with richmond. Luckily, my kids have good teachers this year. A new and more polite office staff would be great too!

So far my daughter has liked the school but I have a seen little structure in the classroom. I am not fond of that but other than that so far we have had good luck with the school.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and we have been here for a month now and so far Richmond seems to be a pretty good shcool. Our teacher is very involved and they have school awards and acomplishments once a month. They have a lot of clubs. And most important my daughter loves it.

Richmond School is the best. I think the whole school is well rounded. The Studens know what to expect from the teachers. The programs are great. The kids are rewarded throught out the school year on thier individual performances. The Principal is the nicest yet firm when she needs to be. You couldn't ...  Read more
