My children started in the district in sixth and ninth respectively. They both were told that they were behind a year but my freshman was able to test up without any problem. The school is very accommodating and all of the teachers that I met were great. Their sports programs always rank in the top. My oldest daughter plays varsity golf and my youngest plays softball and volleyball on the middle school teams. So even though it’s a large school with great athletes, it’s not extremely hard to earn a spot on the team. Overall I am very impressed with the school and I am glad that I decided to make the move.

Pine-Richland is generally a good school. They offer lots of class options so that if you want to take more advanced/ AP classes the options are open to you. Pine- Richland does focus a lot/ almost too much on sports. Yes they have good sports teams but I feel the arts programs should get more attention as they attract what seems to be about the same amount of students. Some of the teachers at Pine-Richland put minimal effort in to teaching and you will find that two teachers who teach the same classes do so very differently. This can result in uneven workloads and poorer grades for students who happen to be taking the same class, just because they have different teachers. I feel this is detrimental for both the students with the harder class and also for those who have the other teacher who treats the class like a blow off.
Excellent variety of extra-curricular. Even as a quiet student, I was able to get involved in the award-winning musical (go stage crew!), marching bad, art club, choir, SADD, and more I’m probably forgetting. The academics are rigorous. You will be prepared for college. The teachers are kind and knowledgeable. PR actually has one of the most economically diverse districts in the state. Unfortunately, not so diverse in the traditional sense.
