East Richland Community Unit School District No. 1 Reviews
I would say that I have enjoyed my experience at East Richland High School. By the way the school name has been changed to just Richland County high School. We have a great staff at the school and each teacher is different. There is at least one teacher that a student can relate to. The students at school are offered many different opportunities. Such as College visits, Club Trips, Field trips, Swimming for PE, etc. My personal favorite is the FFA field trips we take we go to many different competitions and conventions. It is a lot of fun. we are also offered a lot of freedom in the school. Students are allowed to go off campus for lunch, we can travel to different places around town for our classes, and students have the option to take CO OP and go to work instead of taking a class. some things I wish my school could improve on is creating a better sense of community. Cliques are a big problem in our school which can cause students to feel left out.
I did not go out of my way to have fun in high school, so this a review of the school experience on its own. The teachers are very caring, and actually care about and for the students. The dress code rules are very strict, and pretty sexist towards the women. No outside food or drinks allowed, (unless you are a teacher) which is bogus. Bring in a bottle of water from home? No, throw it away. The learning experience has been close to great, the social experience- not even close.
I liked there were some teachers extremely passionate about their work and their students. What I didn't like was the small town politics and unfairness that occurred throughout the school.
