My child entered Richardson HS after spending nine years and (my) many $$$ in private school. She has dyslexia and ADHD however, Richardson has done so so much for her..equal to or more than the private school....RHS is an OUTSTANDING SCHOOL.

RHS has been very good for my children. They've been challenged in coursework, and they have enjoyed traditional high school activities. They have friends of all kinds. It prepared them well for the next step in their education.
