I love that colonel Richardson is a very home based school! Everyone is so close and everyone knew everyone, it’s like a family. When the school needed the support it was like everyone did what they could and what needed to be done to help out it wasn’t “every man for himself”. I also, love the staff they’re always there for their students inside and outside of school.

The overall atmosphere of the school allows for students to be completely comfortable with one another. There are groups who hang out, but social circles are widespread amongst all students and there are no issues with the usual cliques or bullying that high schools tend to be known for. This has made my time in high school quite enjoyable because I can talk with and to anyone I want, and not be sidelined by someone who views me as different.
All of the teachers are so nice! They all want the best for each and every one of us students. They are dedicated to making the students successful, feel safe, and happy.
