Richland School District is incredible. The academics are wonderful, with a great staff and incredibly talented students. The athletics are also exceptional, with Richland Schools often winning local championships, and even performing well at State-wide competitions. The Richland School District is talented in the arts as well. I have had the opportunity to participate in each of these areas, and have been given the ideal circumstances to thrive and excel in each. With great teachers and coaches, Richland School District is a great place to grow up! The only thing I would change is the student leadership. As with most large schools, student leadership is only available to the most "elite" and "popular", and the leadership teachers often fail to hold their students accountable to mistakes that cost the school hundreds of dollars.

My overall experience in the Richland school district has been good. I have had my share of bad teachers but the good teachers are more frequent. The programs and classes at my school allow people to get a lot of experience and knowledge. The administrators are all awesome! They have each student in their best interest. My counselor has hundreds of students and she’s memorized all of our names and knows most everyone personally. The principles and top administrators are all great people who work hard for the students. The culture of my high school is above average in quality. We have a lot of people who value knowledge and education.
I grew up in the Richland School District since I was in pre-school. The Richland School District has allowed me, among thousands of other students, to get a free education, have access to school meals- breakfast, lunch, and after school snacks, and have a safe place to stay after school while they wait for the bus or a parent to pick them up. Richland School District has made mine and my families experience enjoyable, convenient and safe through the classes provided, programs offered and the administrators and teaching staff being approachable and supportive for their students.
