At the Academy of Richmond County High School I learned so much about what it means to have spirit . I am a cheerleader , dancer, JROTC leader and i am apart of the Academy of Richmond County High School Choir . When you attend a great school with so much diversity and ethnicity you learn how to adapt and meet new people. The educators are willing to teach and make sure you move on to the next step in your educational level. Everyone is willing to help you succeed and challenge you and push you to be a better student.

I am currently a senior at the Academy of Richmond County. The past three and a half years have allowed me to grow as an individual in ways I never saw coming. I have made wonderful memories at my high school that I will cherish for many years to come. Also, there have been situations that have pushed me out of my comfort zone both socially and academically. I believe that I made the best out of my four years, and would encourage any prospective students to do the same!
At The Academy of Richmond County we are respectful, accountable, and committed. We are willing to learn, and we are able to learn because of our environment. I love that this school has an IB program that in which I am involved in. The program has helped me overcome a lot of learning differences. It places me with students that are on my level. Although there are good things at this school, something’s could change. I would like to see better food for students. A lot of kids don’t eat at school or at home. At school they force you to enter your lunch number just so they can see that kids get the ford. If they were to better their food children would actually eat it. Richmond isn’t the best but no school is.
