RICHLAND HIGH SCHOOL IS THE BEST! Whether we're going crazy in our student section or acing state tests, Richland is truly one of the best high schools to go to. We have excellent academics, as we always place on the upper end of state testing. Our school is also wonderfully diverse. It's an excellent combination of different cultures, lifestyles and religions, and everyone is extremely supportive and kind. Our teachers are excellent, as they all push their hardest and do whatever they can to be sure their students succeed and that they're truly prepared for college. Our clubs are also amazing! We have everything from Art Club to International Club to Quesadilla Club, and these groups do so much for our school! Richland is definitely a safe place to be- everyone feels welcome. We're like a big family, and I love it here. There's no other school I would rather go to! It's truly great to be a Richland Bomber.

Richland School District (RSD) has provided students like me with ample resources to prepare for college. RSD has allocated Chromebooks to every student, which has helped my studying skills tremendously . Richland School District has built school spirit at every school within its boundaries, which has helped me appreciate my school. I have found a profound love for school because of the impact this school district has made upon me.
Some things I would like changed about the Richland School District is a bit more tutoring options at the different schools. RSD has a myriad of different tutoring options at the different schools ; I would like the tutoring options to be more broad.
My life has truly been changed by the approach this school district has taken. Without all of the opportunity this district had offered, I wouldn't of been where I am today. Every day, I should thank the Richland School district the opportunity it has given to me and my other fellow students.
Over all i love this district; it's safe and the staff are extremely helpful. I currently attend Hanford High School, it is by far the best school i have ever attend. The staff is motivation and don't give up on any student, they will stay late to help or come in early. The sport teams are great cause the coaches are inspirational and encouraging, they make the team feel more like a family then a team. The people here are great, they are accepting and friendly.
