My experience with the Academy of Richmond County is great. I'm currently a senior and have been enjoying my years with the Academy of Richmond County. The Academy of Richmond is a great school and has a great environment. There are some things that the academy should work on. This consist of the organization of things. Some things aren't well organized. However, the Academy of Richmond County has been a good school thus far. They have great teachers and administration. The classes are difficult but are preparing me for college. The sports and clubs are great things to be a part of. Also, the IB Program is a great program to be a apart, which I am currently in.
Review Academy of Richmond County High School
Im an upcoming IB Senior for 2017-2018 year and my past 3 years of being at Richmond has been quite enjoyable for the most part. Academically wise I am challenged with the rigor of the IB classes, but being in this program taught me a lot of things and is preparing for college life. Also everybody in IB is basically family cause you share the same experiences and been in the same classes ever since freshman year. IB at Richmond Academy will always share a special place in my heart.
The teachers belonging to Richmond County are some of the most underappreciated, overworked people I have ever encountered.

I myself am a student, who on a daily basis, watches my fellow classmates disrespect the very people taking time out of their day to give us an education, and continue to let ignorance fill their lives instead of knowledge.

On a daily basis , grown men and women come to work to be taunted by students less than half their age.

The district is on a very low budget : our text books are far from up to date, the desks are stained, the walls have holes, there are roaches and rats crawling around our classrooms , and this make the student body reluctant to learn in thee conditions. We ,as a whole, lash out at those who are trying their best to take care of us.

Despite their own attempts, the district cannot fully take care of our teachers. There have been numbers of times when faculty members have been "let go" for paying their lockers late, there have been instances where there has been months with no pay... they do all that they can.
